The New Jersey Grade 11 High School Proficiency Test (HSPT11) consists of sections for reading, mathematics, and writing that must be passed as requirements for a high school diploma. Students who do not pass all three sections receive additional instruction and retake sections they have not passed. HSPT sections were administered to 6,973 Grade 12 students in 1994. Table 1 presents statewide results for these students, 5,854 of whom were retesting students, and 1,119 of whom were first-time test takers.

Of retesting students, 29.3% passed the reading test this time, 23.7% passed the mathematics test, and 41.9% passed the writing test.
