The NJSLA test results present novel challenges for administrative teams who must determine how to effectively use the data to inform instruction. This workshop begins with a brief overview of the test results: test scale, meaning and implications of averages, and score comparisons. Next, the presenter explains how specific items fall into the testing categories and how NJSLA scores the EBSRs, TECRs, and PCRs (essays). In the second half of the workshop, participants explore various methods of instructional support for each class’ and student’s individual needs. Activities include using NJSLA tools and released sample items, simulating the test construct in the classroom, and ensuring students’ ability to complete RSTs and LATs.
