NJSLA Testing

In lieu of spring 2021 NJSLA testing, the NJDOE is requiring N.J. public schools to administer the Start Strong assessments between September and October 2021.   MTPS testing dates are as follows:  ELA and Math Grades 4-8 - October 12; Science Grade 6 - October 13.

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has implemented changes to New Jersey’s statewide assessment practices effective as of the spring 2019 administration. While the online platform will remain the same, the state’s mathematics and English language Arts (ELA) assessments will no longer be named Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness (PARCC). Instead, the assessments will be called New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA). The ELA assessment will be named NJSLA-ELA, and the mathematics assessment will be named NJSLA-M. The science exam is named NJSLA-S (administered to students in grades 5 and 8).
