PARCC acronym meaning?

Hi, I've been seeing the term 'PARCC' pop up quite a bit, but I can't find a clear explanation of what it stands for. Can anyone help me out? Your assistance would be much appreciated!

Hello! PARCC stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. It is a consortium of states that collaborates to create standardized assessment tools to measure students' knowledge, skills, and readiness for college and careers.

The assessments are typically focused on mathematics and English language arts/literacy and are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The main goal is to improve overall education quality and ensure students are prepared for success after high school in both their educational and professional pursuits.

I hope this helps clear up your confusion!
