How can students succeed on the PARCC test using the Lumos Study Program?
At Lumos Learning, we believe that year-long 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 year-long collaborative learning.
Inside this book, you will find two full-length practice tests that are similar to the PARCC tests students will take to assess their mastery of CCSS aligned curriculum. Completing these tests will help students master the different areas that are included in newly aligned standardized tests and practice test taking skills. The results will help the students and educators get insights into students' strengths and weaknesses in specific content areas. These insights could be used to help students strengthen their skills in difficult topics and to improve speed and accuracy while taking the test.
In addition, this book also contains a Practice Questions by Type.
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. There are currently 20 states involved in the PARCC consortium and a combination of educational leaders from those states along with test developers are working together to create the new computer based English Language Arts and Math assessments.
How is this Lumos tedBook™ aligned to PARCC Guidelines?
Although the PARCC assessments will be conducted online, the practice tests here have been created to accurately reflect the depth and rigor of PARCC tasks in a pencil and paper format. Students will still be exposed to the TECR technology style questions so they become familiar with the wording and how to think through these types of tasks.

Great Book! This book is superior for anybody looking to practice for the standardized test. Book is aligned with the Common Core State Standard. I would feel contented that I am preparing my daughter for the assessment with the most updated content. I highly recommend this book.
A great Book for standardized test! This Math book is really well organized and includes practice tests, detailed explanations and an answer key AND it includes access to online workbooks. It is also aligned with the new Common Core State Standards and filled with great test-taking tips. Just an overall great resource!
Finally, a perfect resource for my kid to weather the parcc transition. I was looking for a book that would educate me on what to expect in the new tests and this book clearly explains the various components of the new tests. The online workbooks are a perfect complement to the paper test. Helps me help him learn difficult topics. He enjoys the online version very much because it is very easy to use on the tablet. I highly recommend this. Great value! Thanks Lumos!
The awesome practice tests They really help in preparing my child for the upcoming exams. The standardized tests are usually harder and more complex than what is taught in schools. As it is, the teachers don't usually prepare them specifically for the tests. Because of it, there is not much practice to prepare them for the actual test and the format of the test. I like the Lumos Learning books, especially the online version. They can give any child a boost and give them the necessary confidence for any grade. My child enjoys the online version very much. It is very easy to use and very practical. I highly recommend the books!
