October 1994 Grade 11 High School Proficiency Test (HSPT11). Cycle I School and District Guidelines. How To Interpret and Use HSPT11 Reports.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
In 1988, the New Jersey Legislature passed legislation that moved the High School Proficiency Test (HSPT) from ninth to eleventh grade. This test of basic skills in reading, mathematics, and writing will be a graduation requirement for all students in New Jersey who enter high school on or after September 1, 1991. In October 1994 the test was administered to all eleventh graders and to twelfth graders who had not yet passed one or more of its sections. This booklet is designed to help school personnel review, interpret, use, and communicate test results. Data in the reports can also help students who did not pass all sections of the HSPT. The booklet is divided into the following parts: (1) an overview and introduction; (2) interpreting test results and scoring; (3) using the score reports, with examples; (4) using the test information in assisting students who did not pass all sections; and (5) communicating the score information to others. Appendices include a copy of the state Administrative Code relating to statewide assessment, and a glossary of testing terms. (Contains 2 tables and 11 figures.) (SLD)
