How can students succeed on the PARCC test using the Lumos Study Program?
At Lumos Learning, we believe that yearlong learning and adequate practice before the actual test are the keys to student success on the standardized tests. We have designed the Lumos Study Program to help students get plenty of realistic practice before the test and to promote yearlong collaborative learning.
Inside this book, you will find four comprehensive practice tests. Completing these tests will help students master the different areas that are included in the Common Core State Standards and practice test taking skills. The results will help the students and educators get insights into students' strengths and weaknesses in particular content areas.
The Lumos Online Workbooks consist of hundreds of grade appropriate questions based on the CCSS. Students will get instant feedback and can review their answers anytime. Each student's answers and progress can be reviewed by parents and educators to reinforce the learning experience.
What is PARCC?
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness and College and Careers (PARCC) is one of two state consortiums responsible for developing assessments aligned to the new, more rigorous Common Core State Standards.

- Mid year assessment
- Performance based assessment
