PARCC Grade 11 ELA
Strengthen your (Common) Core with Shmoop.
Is the analysis of literary and informational texts looming over you like an overdue PARCCing ticket? Have you ever cracked a walk-in-the-PARCC joke and chalked it up to practicing figurative language? Do you feel like you're participating in a Kafkaesque trial when you hear the words "evidence statement"? Welcome to the PARCC Grade 11 ELA-Literacy assessment! Shmoop's guide includes Common Core-aligned assessments, practice items, and explanations for all those test-related acronyms. By the end of this guide, PARCC should be a walk in the…well, you get the idea.
What's Inside Shmoop's Online PARCC Prep
Shmoop is a labor of love from folks who are really, really into learning. Our test prep resources will help you prepare for exams with comprehensive, engaging, and frankly hilarious materials that bring the test to life. No, not like that. Put down those torches.
College and Career Readiness
Does life beyond school even exist? (Spoiler alert: yes.) PARCC is all about making sure students are ready to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, so our guide helps develop ELA-Literacy triple threats with exercise and explanations based on literary, research, and scientific texts.
PARCC and Common-Core Aligned Items
There's no need to wish for the stars to align on testing day—we've already done all the aligning for you. All of Shmoop's practice items align to the Common Core State Standards and PARCC Evidence Statements, and we've got the task models to prove it. If the stars do end up aligning, it's probably because the universe is reeling from your Common Core readiness. Well, probably not…but it's a nice thought.
Performance-Based Assessments, End-of-Year Assessments, and Task Models
Is a PBA like a fancy peanut butter sandwich? Can we eat it? Maybe, but we wouldn't recommend it. Our guide has one full-length Performance-Based Assessment, one full-length End-of-Year assessment, and a smorgasbord of practice items to help you put the "ace" in Performance-Based Assessment.
EBSRs? TECRs? PCRs? Holy acronyms, Batman! These are the definitions you need, if not exactly the definitions you deserve, so let Shmoop sort through the jargon for you. In addition to multiple types of multiple-choice questions, our assessments feature drag-and-drop, selectable-text, and short-text items. Test-taking robots not included.
