In order to keep up with the needs of the students, we have extended our Wednesday's instructor hours to 8:30PM. So if you are looking for additional sessions, you can now choose the 6:30PM, or 7:30PM session. Let us help you with that EveryD..
While NJ ASK's scoring matrix was previously setup to determine if the student is "Advanced Proficient", "Proficient", or "Partially Proficient" in the subject matter, PARCC has changed this type of scoring scale. Under the PARCC scoring system, students will be put into the following categories (or performance level descriptors PLDs):
Essentially these PLDs is supposed to be a gauge of how prepared your student will be heading in college. In my experience with NJ Ask, I have found that the scores from NJ Ask can affect what math class a student can get into in the high school. Since our students are being tested on their math efficiency, why worry about where they will be placed at this point? The more important question I would like you to think about now is how solid is your child's math foundation? Without the basic foundation in math, your child will evidently struggle throughout his/her math class. And if the PARCC is suppose to test your child's cumulative math skills, we should really reconsider how we can help our children solidify their mathematical foundation core material and then work their way into the more difficult material.
If you have any question how we can help your child with PARCC, please call us now at 201-444-8020, or you can send us an email [email protected].
