Alternate Proficiency Assessment in Science (APA)
APA State Summary
Please Note: The results of the redesigned NJ APA cannot be compared with those of previous assessments due to changes in test design in 2009. In order to meet the requirements of NCLB and the United States Department of Education peer review, the APA was revised to include changes to content that may be assessed and the dimensions on which that content is scored. These revisions were implemented in the 2008-2009 school year. As a result, longitudinal analyses and comparisons across or including the 2008-2009 assessment year are not recommended, nor are they likely to be interpretable.
