ABOUT NJASK TEST
NJASK or the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge is a standardized test given to all New Jersey public-schooled students in grades 3-8 during and is administered by the New Jersey Department of Education.
It is designed to give your school information about how well your children are achieving in the areas required by New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards.
The NJASK is a four-section, multiple-choice exam administered by the Education Records Bureau. The exact number of questions and time vary a little for each level.
The Science NJASK usually covers topics in – Life Science, Physical Science and Earth Science.
The test will range from about 60 minutes to 90 minutes of testing time per day of the test.
It is generally in the month of May every year.
The NJASK reports both raw and scale scores. A raw score is the total number of points a student earns on a test. A scale score is simply a conversion of that raw score, using a predetermined mathematical algorithm, to permit legitimate and meaningful comparisons over time and across grades and content areas.
The total scores in Science are reported as scale scores with a range of 100 to 300. The scale score for Science is a total score based on a combination of correct answers to multiple-choice items and the number of points received for constructed-response items.
The score ranges for the proficiency levels are as follows:
Advanced Proficient: 250–300
Partially Proficient: 100–199
Partially Proficient is considered to be below the state minimum level of proficiency. Students at this proficiency level may need additional instructional support, which could be in the form of individual or programmatic intervention.
