NAEP and New Jersey State Assessments
NAEP and the New Jersey state assessments serve different purposes and are used together to inform education policy. These assessments also differ in the content and skills that are measured, difficulty of test items, and methods used for setting performance standards (i.e., the cut points for determining achievement levels). Thus, NAEP, the New Jersey state assessments, and assessments in other states have their own notion about what is proficient.
