The vision of the mathematics standards is focused on achieving one crucial goal: To enable ALL of New Jersey’s children to acquire the mathematical skills, understandings, and attitudes that they will need to be successful in their careers and daily lives.

The vision of success for all students in mathematics depends on: 1. Establishing learning environments that facilitate student learning of mathematics. 2. A commitment to equity and to excellence. 3. Defining the critical goals of mathematics education today – what students should know and be able to do (i.e., content and processes).

“What students should know and be able to do.” New Jersey’s mathematics standards rest on the notion that an appropriate mathematics curriculum results from a series of critical decisions about three inseparably linked components: 1. Content 2. Instruction 3. Assessment

HSPA/SRA The SRA is aligned to the HSPA test specifications to ensure that students who demonstrate proficiency through the SRA have demonstrated the same knowledge, skills and performance levels as students who are proficient on the HSPA itself. The process used for the development of the SRA is designed to ensure that the SRA is fair, reliable, and comparable for all eligible SRA candidates, including students from special populations.

Core Curriculum Content Standards Each SRA question, known as a Performance Task Assessment (PAT), consists of one to five open-ended parts derived from a common stem. Each PAT is aligned to the HSPA content specifications by standards. The Core Curriculum Content Standards (CCCS) were revised in 2002.

SRA PAT selection is based only on the results of the student’s first HSPA administration. A partially proficient scaled score in either content area means the student must successfully complete two PATs for each standard in the content area. Mathematics has 4 content standards.
