NJSLA-S Practice Tests

                February 2019: PARCC is now known as NJSLA (New Jersey Student Learning Assessment). Assessment guidelines & graduation requirements for the Classes of 2021 and beyond continue to be reviewed by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE), but more importantly, they have stated that this does NOT eliminate the assessments or the requirement to participate in them. All New Jersey public schools are to schedule NJSLA testing, as outlined by the NJDOE, for all students in grades 3-high school for the 2018-19 school year. Any changes to the Spring testing schedule, and/or high school graduation requirements, will be made upon official notification from the NJDOE, and all stakeholders will be notified accordingly. All school districts must continue to follow the current guidelines for state testing and high school graduation until notified by the NJDOE.
