Dear Parents(s)/ Guardian(s), The New Jersey Department of Education requires all school districts to report details of state and/ or commercially-developed standardized assessments to parents and guardians. As such, please find an overview of the various standardized assessments administered to students at specific grade levels, the intended purposes of these assessments, and anticipated dates. Please note that in some instances, scheduling is not yet finalized, and dates may change. More information will be shared with parents/ guardians as dates are firmed up.
Elementary Grade Reporting: Clear, Detailed, and Consistent Expectations
Clearly articulated expectations exist for every main grade and supportive indicator.
- Level 3 represents the grade-level expectations.
- Level 4 is for exceptional cases, in which students consistently exceed grade-level expectations for the marking period.
- Students may move from a 4 to a 3 as the expectations change from one marking period to another. This is not a drop in one's achievement.
Information on our District's Elementary grade report cards is contained in this section. The Report Card flyer provides an overview of the report card's structure. Report card templates and rubrics for each subject area are provided for grades K-5.
