Welcome to the Lacey Township School District NJSLA Resource Page. These resources will assist in providing parents, students, and community members with information about the NJSLA assessments.
What is NJSLA?
Students in grades 3-11 participate in the NJSLA test. The NJSLA assessments are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and are intended to measure students' ability to apply their knowledge of concepts. The math assessments require students to solve problems using mathematical reasoning and to be able to demonstrate understanding of mathematical principles. In English Language Arts (ELA), students will closely read multiple passages, answer comprehension questions, and write essay responses in literary analysis, research tasks, and narrative tasks.
