PARCC MATHEMATICS - Grades 3-12 - Computer Based Testing

The PARCC’s Model Content Frameworks for Mathematics designate clusters as Major, Additional and Supporting for each grade and course.  As discussed in the Model Content Frameworks, some clusters that are not major emphases in themselves are designed to support and strengthen areas of major emphasis, while other clusters that may not connect tightly or explicitly to the major work of the grade would fairly be called additional.
