within programs Protecting Student Confidentiality In the reporting of group assessment data, the intent is to protect student privacy through procedures that systematically prevent members of the public from discerning student identity. Guidelines provided by the Federal government state that in the reporting of assessment results, suppression of numbers should occur in categories where the counts are low, making it otherwise possible to infer the results of individuals. In practice, it is common to suppress numbers where a group size is equal to ten or less and to suppress totals when it is possible to calculate back to the results of two students.

Grade 11 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers PARCC Grades 3-11 Mathematics, Language Arts Literacy Alternative Proficiency Assessment APA The Alternate Proficiency Assessment (APA) in science is a portfolio assessment designed to measure progress toward achieving New Jersey's state educational standards for those students with the most significant intellectual disabilities who are
unable to participate in the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJASK) Science or the New Jersey Biology Competency Test (NJBCT). Alternative Proficiency Assessment APA Students in grades 4 and 8 were assessed in the APA. Students in high school who received instruction in the biology standards were assessed in the APA. Dynamic Learning Maps DLM
The Dynamic Learning Map assessed the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics and was the alternate assessment companion to the PARCC for students with the most significant intellectual disabilities in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Computer Based. Replaced the APA in ELA and Math. Dynamic Learning Maps DLM Teachers completed two student surveys: 1) Personal Needs Profile This profile collected information on the students
support needs and current level of instruction. 2) First Contact This survey helped to identify the students academic levels in order to establish a baseline for the selecting test items. 2015 Dynamic Learning Maps Number of Testlets Testlet= DLM assessments in Math and ELA Grade 3 Math Testlets 6

exception of two having a group size that is equal to ten or less. Next Steps Identify trends in the data to address program, group, and individual student needs. Directors and Supervisors, led by Assistant Superintendent, will continue to develop continuity and coherence in curriculum and assessment. Continue alignment of all curriculum and resources that are standards-based. Continue horizontal articulation through Learning Teams and vertical articulation through articulation meetings, technology use (Atlas) and professional development.
Continue to focus on the importance of differentiation in the classroom and the shifts in pedagogy, expectations and assessment that are necessary to ensure that learning occurs for all students in
