Measuring Up, 2004: A Report on Language Arts Literacy and Mathematics Standards and Assessments for New Jersey
Since Achieve's first report in 2000, New Jersey has revised its Core Curriculum Content Standards in language arts literacy and math. In 2004, at the request of the governor and commissioner of education and with the encouragement and support of New Jersey United, a statewide business and education coalition, Achieve reviewed the state's revised standards and related tests. They compared the revised standards in language arts literacy and math with the earlier version of the standards, as well as with their benchmark standards. They also analyzed how well the state tests in grades 4 and 8 and high school assess the knowledge and skills found in the state's new standards. This report summarizes Achieve's findings and recommendations. Biographies are appended.
