Introduction

Welcome to an Educational Adventure

The New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge, or NJ ASK, is the
Garden State’s answer to the federal No Child Left Behind Act, which
requires that states use standards-based testing to ensure that students are
picking up the skills and knowledge necessary for academic success.
 
We at REA believe that a friendly, hands-on introduction and preparation
for the test are keys to creating a successful testing experience. REA’s NJ ASK
books offer these key features:
Clearly identified book activities
Contextual illustrations
Easy-to-follow lessons
Step-by-step examples
Tips for solving problems tailored for the proper grade level
Exercises to sharpen skills
Real practice
 
Below is helpful information for students, parents, and teachers concerning
the NJ ASK and test taking in general. Organized practice is itself a prime
skill for young students to master, because it will help set the tone for
success long into the future as their educational adventure continues. It is
REA’s sincere hope that this book—by providing relevant, standards-based
practice—can become an integral part of that adventure.
 
What is the NJ ASK?
The New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge is a standards-based
assessment used in New Jersey’s public schools. Performance on the NJ ASK
test equates not with the grades students receive for teacher-assigned work
but rather with proficiency measures pegged to how well students are
acquiring the knowledge and skills outlined in the state’s Core Curriculum
Content Standards. Those proficiency measures fall into three broad
categories, or bands: “partially proficient,” “proficient,” and “advanced
proficient.”
 

When is the NJ ASK given?
The test is administered in early spring. Grade 3 students take the NJ ASK
Mathematics on two days. Testing on Day One is 63 minutes; on day two
testing is 68 minutes. This does not include time to distribute materials, read
directions, and take breaks.
 

What is the format of the NJ ASK?
With multiple choice, students are asked to choose the correct answer out of
four. With open-ended questions, children answer with written responses in
their own words.

Understanding the NJ ASK and This Book

Students:
This book was specially written and designed to make test practice easy
and fruitful for you. Our practice tests are very much like the actual NJ ASK
tests, and our review is filled with illustrations, drills, exercises, and practice
questions to help you become familiar with the testing environment and to
retain information about key topics.
 
 
Parents:
The NJ ASK and other state assessment tests are designed to give you
and the school information about how well your children are achieving
in the areas required by New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards.
These standards describe what students should know at the end of certain
grades. This book helps your children to review and prepare effectively and
positively for the NJ ASK Mathematics.
 

Teachers:
When you introduce your students to the test-taking environment and the
demands of the NJ ASK tests, you can use our authoritative book in your
classroom for planned, guided instruction and practice testing. Effective
preparation means better test scores!

Test Accommodations and Special Situations
Every effort is made to provide a level playing field for students with
disabilities who are taking the NJ ASK. Most students with educational
disabilities and most students whose English language skills are limited
take the standard NJ ASK. Students with disabilities will be working toward
achieving the standards at whatever level is appropriate for them. Supports
such as large-print type are available for students who have a current
Individualized Education Program (IEP) or who have plans required under
Section 504 or who use these supports and accommodations during other
classroom testing.

If the IEP team decides that a student will not take the NJ ASK in Language
Arts Literacy, Mathematics, and/or Science, the child will take the Alternate
Proficiency Assessment (APA).
