NJSLA Accommodations & Accessibility

For the assessment system as a whole, NJSLA is committed to ensuring that all participating students, including students with disabilities, English learners, and English learners with disabilities, are able to engage in a meaningful and appropriate manner so valid results can be obtained for all students.

Through a combination of universal design principles and computer-embedded features, NJSLA is designing an assessment system that is inclusive of all students – from initial design through implementation.  

The third edition of the NJSLA Accessibility Features & Accommodations Manual is a comprehensive policy document that provides guidance to districts and decision-making teams (CST or I&RS Committees) to ensure that the NJSLA assessments provide valid results for all participating students.
