New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJASK)
The Science test measures fourth and eighth grade students' ability to recall information and to solve problems by applying science concepts. The Science test assesses knowledge and application skills in three clusters; each cluster contains multiple-choice items and constructed-response items. The NJ CCCS numbers corresponding to the three clusters are indicated in parentheses.
Science items are also classified and reported as either of the following:
- Knowledge (Comprehension and Science, Society/Technology), or
- Application (Habits of Mind/Inquiry and Mathematics).
