The West Orange Public Schools administer a variety of assessments to its students at various grade levels to gather data that can be provided to them, their parents, teaching staff and the school district on performance levels. Some of these tests are required by the State of New Jersey, others are administered at the discretion of the school district.
The Office of State Assessments (OSA) coordinates the development and implementation of New Jersey’s statewide assessment program, which is designed to measure student attainment of New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards. The OSA works collaboratively within the department and with school districts to collect and report information about student academic achievement in order to inform instruction, increase student learning, and help parents and the public assess the effectiveness of their schools.
