The NJSLA (New Jersey Student Learning Assessment) which is formerly known as PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) serves as an "educational GPS system," assessing students' current performance, and pointing the way to what students need to learn to be ready for the next grade level and, by high school graduation, for college and/or a career.
The computer based assessments are designed to give schools and teachers more information to improve instruction. Moreover, NJSLA is designed to let parents know how their child is progressing academically. This more detailed information can lead to strong engagement between parents and teachers.
