NJSLA Assessment Overview, Test Dates & Resources
The Lenape Regional High School District’s Spring 2019 New Jersey State Learning Assessment testing will occur during the morning, and all classes will rotate throughout the day. As per New Jersey Department of Education, all 9th and 10th grade students will be administered the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment in English Language Arts (ELA) as listed below. In addition, students in 9th and 10th enrolled in Algebra I, Geometry, Intro to Algebra II, and Algebra II will take the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment in those courses. Intro to Algebra II students will take the Algebra I New Jersey Student Learning Assessment. Students who “doubled up” in math by taking Geometry with Algebra I or II will not take the Geometry assessment. Juniors who have yet to meet their graduation testing requirement will also be testing in English and/or Math. Juniors who need to take the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment will be notified that they will be testing.
- Tuesday, April 30 = Geometry and ELA11
- Wednesday, May 1 = ELA Grade 10
- Thursday, May 2 = ELA 9
- Monday, May 20 = Algebra 1
- Tuesday, May 21 = Algebra 2
All students will report to each day’s regular scheduled first class at the regular time. After daily attendance, students will report to their testing room if testing, stay in their first class, or be instructed where to report. The school day ends at the regular time. Students will receive testing details, including their testing times and rooms, by Thursday, April 18. All students need to bring wired headphones or earbuds for all testing sessions and a graphing calculator for all Math testing sessions. Students are to leave all electronic devices and watches in their lockers before reporting to testing rooms. Students who bring cellphones or watches to testing rooms will be instructed to put them in their bags against the walls of the rooms. Every testing room has a clock, and the test proctors will tell the students how much time is remaining at regular intervals.
Testing takes place before lunch each day, thus ensuring a full-length lunch for every student. Community Lunch and Learn will occur each day of testing. Students, especially those with medical concerns, need to adjust accordingly to the change in their lunch times. No science labs will occur on testing days. Students absent any day of their tests will be scheduled for make-up testing. Please see the district website for additional information.
Thank you for your support in making your student’s testing experience as successful as possible. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment, please contact your student’s school counselor.
- For refusals before or on March 29, 2019 - Student may attend classes if they meet (many will not because teachers are needed as proctors). For classes not meeting, student must report to alternative area. Once the school’s test administration plan is finalized, school will inform students where to report.
- For refusals after March 29, 2019 – Student may attend classes if they meet (many will not because teachers are needed as proctors). Effort will be made to enable student to attend class, but this option cannot be assured. If room is available in alternative area, student may be excused to that location. Otherwise, student must report to assigned testing room and may complete independent reading there in compliance with testing manual. Once the school’s test administration plan is finalized, school will inform students where to report.
