    The NJ Department of Education has cancelled the

    2020 spring NJSLA Assessments. 



    2019-2020 New Jersey Student Learning Assessments 

    ELA, Math and Science


    Spring testing dates are as follows:
    Gr. 3-8 ELA:Thursday, May 7, 2020 & Friday, May 8, 2020.
    Gr. 3-8 Math: Tuesday, May 12, 2020 to Thursday, May 14, 2020.
    Gr. 5 & 8 Science: Wednesday, May 21 & Thursday, May 22,2020.
    Make-up testing for ELA & Math will be the week of May 18th.
    Make-up testing for Science will be the week of May 25.
    Please plan for children to have a good night's sleep and a good breakfast during testing. Also, please make sure students arrive to school on time so that they will not feel rushed as testing gets started immediately after homeroom each morning. If at all possible, please minimize student absences during testing days as studies have shown that students perform better when they are able to complete testing with their peers. 
    Testing will be 3 periods or less per day so students will still have instruction throughout other classes during the days. 
    If you have any questions regarding testing, please contact our District Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Ann Marie VanSickle at avansickle@greenhills.org.
