In the spring of 2021, students in grades 3-10 will be administered the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA) for both English language arts (ELA) and mathematics (M). At the high school level, students enrolled in ELA I, ELA II, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry will be administered the NJSLA.  Additionally, all grades 5, 8 and 11 students will be administered the science NJSLA.  The Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) assessments will also be administered in the spring to identified students with Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs).  
    The calendar for the administration of the NJSLA assessments, DLM and the high school Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams can be accessed from each of the region's district (Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Shore Regional, and West Long Branch) websites, as applicable. The NJSLA calendar adheres to the testing window options provided by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) and reflects one window or administration for the spring of 2021 NJSLA for ELA and mathematics and a separate window for the NJSLA science assessments. 
    Pertaining to content, the NJSLA is designed to measure the extent to which students have mastered the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for ELA, science and mathematics.
