Spring 2021 Statewide Assessments

The NJ Department of Education has postponed the planned start date of all assessments and plans to begin administering statewide assessments no earlier than April 5, 2021.

For more information including test dates, refer to the Department of Education's Assessments page.

High School Graduation Assessments

Governor Murphy announced an executive order waiving the graduation assessment test requirement for any current high-school senior who has satisfied all other statutory graduation requirements.

Given the limited availability of opportunities to meet the state's graduation proficiency test requirement, this order waives the requirement for the Class of 2021 and ensures that they are still able to graduate as expected so long as all credit, curriculum standard, and attendance benchmarks are met.
