• New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA) Information

    Thank you for visiting Washington Township Public Schools' State Testing Information website.  The purpose of this page is to provide all staff, students, parents, and community members with accurate information as it relates to State assessments.

    What's New for 2018-2019

    • The State of New Jersey has ended its membership of the interstate consortium that produced the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments. While the online platform will remain the same, the state’s mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) assessments will no longer be called Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness (PARCC). The statewide assessments for ELA and mathematics will be called:
      • New Jersey Student Learning Assessments-ELA (NJSLA-ELA)
      • New Jersey Student Learning Assessment-Mathematics (NJSLA-M)
        • Please note:  as in previous State Assessment administrations, per state and federal law, all districts are required to administer state ELA and math assessments to the designated grade levels.  There is no provision for an "opt-out."

    District Testing Expectation

    It is the Washington Township Public Schools' expectation that all students in grades 3-10 will participate in State Assessments.
    If you are considering refusing a State Assessment, please contact your child's building principal in order for the district to complete the appropriate procedures as it relates to the refusal process.  We appreciate your assistance in ensuring our compliance.
