It really depends on which assessment you are using and the rubric you are using to determine proficiency. Do you have a specific example of an assessment you are using?

Thanks so much for responding! We are using the achieve the core assessments. The assessment has 7 multiple choice-type questions(some part A, part B, some with two correct answers out of six choices, etc.). It also has an extended response, but I am grading that separate from the multiple choice. So, I guess I am more so wondering what proficiency looks like on the multiple choice assessment. 75%? 80%? 90%? 100%?
That's such a tricky question, as even when the students take the PARRC, it will be norm- based, so there won't be a cut off proficiency level. It may be helpful to run an analysis, where you take a sample of students who scored proficient on the multiple choice subtest of the state standardized tests, and then see how they scored on your rubric. If, for example, all 20 students who scored proficient on your state test are scoring in the 70th percentile or higher, then you could safely assume 70% marks a level of proficiency similar to that of the Common Core.
Hope this helps!
