State Level Student Performance Data
The results, from the
Spring 2019 administration
of the New Jersey Student Learning Assessments (NJSLA) in mathematics and English Language Arts, are consistent with the previous year. The results from the statewide assessment also demonstrate that New Jersey has more work to do to ensure that all students have equitable access to post-secondary opportunities. Gaps persist among subgroups such as economically disadvantaged students, English language learners, and those with disabilities.
Transition to Next Generation Statewide Assessments
NJDOE also provided an updated timeline to transition to the next generation
assessments. The Department aims to maintain high academic standards, support districts to provide students with an equitable access to a high-quality education, and ensure the state assessment system evolves incrementally and fairly. In addition, the Department aims to develop the assessments with input from New Jersey educators, provide accommodations to students who need them, ensure test security, and utilize
technology that can provide educators and parents with clear blueprints to the state’s learning standards.
