Standardized testing is administered to students in grades five through eight in English Language Arts and math, and in science in grades five and eight only. During the 2022-2023 school year, students are required by state law to take the Start Strong and New Jersey Student Learning Assessments. These tests measure your child’s performance in relationship to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. The classroom teacher and administrative team review results of this test in an effort to improve instruction. Test results are also used to identify students that may be in need of assistance through the intervention program. Moreover, they are recorded in the students’ permanent record files. Results are generally received in the summer months and mailed to parents/guardians in the fall.
