1 Spring 2011 NJASK Testing Report Bedminster Township School Presented by: David Bilenker, Supervisor of Instruction

2 New Jersey Proficiency Levels for Grades 3-8 NJASK  Student scores for NJASK are reported as scaled scores  Scaled scores range from with 300 being a “perfect” score Partially Proficient Partially Proficient Proficient Proficient Advanced Proficient Advanced Proficient

3 Language Arts Literacy (LAL)  The Language Arts Literacy section of each test measures students’ achievement in reading, writing, and viewing appropriate to their respective grade level  Students read passages selected from published books, newspapers and magazines, as well as everyday text  Students then respond to related multiple- choice, open-ended, and essay questions

4 Mathematics  The mathematics section of each test measures students’ ability to solve problems by applying mathematical concepts appropriate to their respective grade level  Students do this in response to multiple choice, grid response, and open-ended questions

5 Science  The Science assessment measures knowledge and skills in three content clusters for grades 4 and 8 appropriate to their respective grade level Life Science Life Science Physical Science Physical Science Earth Science Earth Science  Scores are reported in scaled scores ranging from , with advanced proficient, proficient and partially proficient scores, the same as the LAL and Math assessments

6 NJASK  The NJASK is a single indicator used to gauge a school or district’s performance during a given school year.  Measures students’ mastery of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for their respective grade level(s).  Ultimately, the NJASK will be “phased out” as the NJCCCS will be replaced by the Common Core State Standards.  Utilized by school district’s for placement purposes and to identify instructional strengths and deficiencies

7 New Performance Indicators  According to the Education Transformation Task Force, there will be a shift in measuring a school district’s performance through the use of a multitude of performance indicators: Emphasis on Outcomes Graduation Rates College Readiness Achievement Gains Academic Progress (growth over time)

8 Reasons for Change Initiative  Governor has charged the Task Force of redefining what is considered success/failure for school districts by developing new criteria.  The NJASK does not measure a school district’s growth over time and fails to account for the impact of various sub-groups performance and their impact on the district’s overall scores/rating.

9 Facts  Bedminster Township School’s student population is comprised of the following sub-groups: 18% Special Education 3.3% Limited English Proficient  Historically, the aforementioned subgroups are outperformed by their counterparts on state assessments such as the NJASK.

10 District Factor Groups  The District Factor Groups (DFGs) were first developed in 1975 for the purpose of comparing students’ performance on statewide assessments across demographically similar school districts.  The DFGs represent an approximate measure of a community’s relative socioeconomic status (SES). The classification system provides a useful tool for examining student achievement and comparing similarly-situated school districts in other analyses.

11 DFG  The DFGs are calculated using the following six variables : 1) Percent of adults with no high school diploma 2) Percent of adults with some college education 3) Occupational status 4) Unemployment rate 5) Percent of individuals in poverty 6) Median family income.
