New Jersey Student Learning Assessment

Each spring students in grades 3-11 participate in an online assessment required by the New Jersey Department of Education. In prior years, students participated in the The Partnership for Assessment for Readiness of College and Careers (PARCC) which was aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (http://www.state.nj.us/education/cccs/) and was designed to determine a student’s readiness for college and career. Beginning Spring 2019 New Jersey students will participate in the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science.
