The State of New Jersey has ended its membership of the interstate consortium that produced the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) Assessments. While the online platform remains the same, the state's mathematics and English language arts (ELA) assessments will no longer be called Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).
Hainesport Township School District will administer the New Jersey Learning Assessments (NJSLA) beginning Monday, May 4, 2020 for Grades 3-5. NJSLA testing for Grades 6-8 will begin Tuesday, May 12, 2020. Please refer to the chart below for NJSLA unit testing times. Make-up testing will follow regular NJSLA assessment administration.
**Students enrolled in Algebra I will participate in the 2020 Algebra I end-of-course test. Students will complete two units; 90 minutes each.
Hainesport Township School District has been randomly selected to participate in the ELA Field Test for the Spring 2020 NJSLA-ELA. For additional information regarding field testing, click to view the NJSLA Spring 2020 ELA Field Test Notification.
As information is made available by the New Jersey Department of Education regarding the Spring 2020 NJSLA administration, information will be updated accordingly.
All NJSLA units are computer-based, utilizing modern 21st century technology and offering accessibility features
for all students (paper-based options are available for students with disabilities). Students can interact with all computer-based item types for all grade levels and subjects using the NJSLA Practice Tests
. The NJSLA-ELA/M measure the same constructs and use the same item banks as the previous assessments. Click on the links below to view NJSLA test blueprints and companion guides.
An Individual Student Report (ISR) for English language arts and Mathematics will be mailed home the following school year, after results are received by the district (approximately mid to late August). The Individual Student Report provides a summary of how a student is progressing with grade level content as defined in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS)
. The report also indicates where a student is doing well and where he or she may need additional help.
Newly available this year is the Digital Item Library
, which provides access to released items from the NJSLA ELA and mathematics assessments. Tools available in the library can help search for specific items, or sort items by Evidence Statements or standards. The items are displayed online and allow for users to view and interact with the items in the exact same manner as student test-takers. Additional released items will continue to be added as they become available.
Another addition to score reporting for the 2019 ELA and mathematics results is an online portal for parents/guardians. The online portal will include the student's scale score, quick access to resources that fit a student's needs, and a video score report. The portal will also allow for parents/guardians to track a student's scores from year to year, beginning with Spring 2019. To access the online portal, parents/guardians must create an account using the unique claim code that is located on their child's paper ISR. The New Jersey parent/guardian portal will be available in early October 2019.
The video score report that will be available through the online portal communicates information from the ISR through animations and a voiceover in New Jersey's top five languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, and Arabic. To further assist parents/guardians, the NJDOE has developed a Score Interpretation Guide
for ELA and mathematics.
