PARCC Statewide Assessments Schedule
Similar to the statewide PARCC ELA and mathematics assessments that New Jersey already administers, the NJSLA-S will be administered during a testing window as shown in Table 1, below. This provides districts flexibility by allowing them to set their own schedule and work around already- planned activities (e.g., the New Jersey Association of Student Councils awards ceremony in May). The timing for each of the grade-level assessments is shown in Table 2, below. Also, as they do with the PARCC assessments, districts can administer up to two units per day for each student, so students could complete testing in science in just two days.
