New Jersey Graduation Assessment (NJGPA)
Classes of 2023–2025 High School Graduation Assessment Requirements
Updated July 2022
On Tuesday, July 5, 2022, Governor Murphy signed P.L.2022, c.60 (ACS for A-3196/S-2349), which requires the State Board of Education to administer the New Jersey Graduation Proficiency Assessment (NJGPA) as a field test for the class of 2023. There is no graduation assessment requirement for any student who is expected to graduate with the class of 2023. Students in the class of 2023 must still meet all the other State and local graduation requirements, including but not limited to credit, curriculum, and attendance requirements. The graduation assessment requirements for the classes of 2024 and 2025 remain in place.
The requirements in this section were adopted by the New Jersey State Board of Education on September 8, 2021 for the classes of 2023–2025.
New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA)
NJSLA (New Jersey Student Learning Assessment) is the assessment given in Grades 3-11 to determine student proficiency of the grade level or content skills expectations detailed in the New Jersey Learning Standards. The NJSLA assessments replace the previous state standardized tests for English-Language Arts, and Mathematics.
The New Jersey Student Learning Assessment for Science (NJSLA-S) measures student proficiency with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Science for students in grades 5, 8, and 11. The science standards require assessment tasks that examine students’ performance of scientific and engineering practices in the context of crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas. The three-dimensional nature of the standards requires more complex assessment items and tasks. The NJSLA are only one component of a system of assessments that provide evidence about student learning. The data collected from the NJSLA-S, students’ interactions with teachers on a daily basis, and their subsequent performance on teacher and district developed assessments combine to provide a clear and well-rounded picture of students’ achievement.Click here to access additional information from the New Jersey Department of Education Assessment Website.
