Individual Score Reports with the results of the 2019 state standardized tests were mailed to parents of current 4th-11th grade students recently. These reports included results of the New Jersey Learning Assessment (NJSLA) for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The NJSLA takes the place of PARCC, which had been administered in New Jersey from 2014-2018. These Individual Score Reports include charts and graphics that show you how well your student is performing in relation to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, and how your student’s performance compares to other students in his or her school, district and state.
Evaluating the results from standardized testing can be a helpful tool in measuring your child’s success in school. However, it is important to remember that it is just one of the many ways our district is determining whether he or she is developing the skills and knowledge needed for success throughout school and after graduating high school. It is difficult, if not impossible, for a standardized test to measure the competencies we have prioritized as a district in the Profile of a Ramsey Graduate.
