Grade Eight Proficiency Assessment (GEPA) Student Preparation Booklet.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
This booklet prepares a student to take New Jersey's Grade Eight Proficiency Assessment (GEPA), a test that measures the knowledge and skills that will be tested later in the state's High School Proficiency Assessment. The GEPA has three test sections (content areas): Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, and Science. The booklet tells students about the test, how grades will be reported, and what the test will be like. It describes the three content areas and contains sample questions in each area. Information is given so that the student can prepare himself or herself to take the test. A pamphlet is packaged with this booklet to describe the GEPA for parents, answering why it is given and how results are reported students ask and adding information about testing for special education students. The parent pamphlet, "Grade Eight Proficiency Assessment (GEPA): Your Guide to the GEPA," is in both English and Spanish. (SLD)
