School Year 2014-15 Assessment Reports

Please Note:  New test designs and achievement standards for NJ ASK 5-8 Language Arts Literacy (LAL) and mathematics were implemented in 2008; thus, direct comparisons between pre-2008 NJ ASK 5-8 data and NJ ASK 5-8 data from 2008 and subsequent years are inappropriate.   New test designs and achievement standards for NJ ASK 3-4 LAL and mathematics were implemented in 2009; thus, direct comparisons between pre-2009 NJ ASK 3-4 data and NJ ASK 3-4 data from 2009 and subsequent years are inappropriate.   The grade 4 and grade 8 science assessments have not changed; therefore, direct comparisons among all years of these programs are appropriate.

Alternative Proficiency Assessment 2015

Please Note: The results of the redesigned NJ APA cannot be compared with those of previous assessments due to changes in test design in 2009.  In order to meet the requirements of NCLB and the United States Department of Education peer review, the APA was revised to include changes to content that may be assessed and the dimensions on which that content is scored.  These revisions were implemented in the 2008-2009 school year.  As a result, longitudinal analyses and comparisons across or including the 2008-2009 assessment year are not recommended, nor are they likely to be interpretable.
