NJSLA Assessment Overview, Test Dates & Resources
The Lenape Regional High School District’s Spring 2020 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.

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 9. 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.
