NJ SLA (Student Learning Assessment) Report

Introduction

The report is used to generate the registration form to be uploaded to PearsonAccess Next for the NJSLA-ELA and NJSLA-M assessments.

Understanding the Report Output Table

The report output table for this report includes the following elements:

  • PowerSchool Field Name (NJSMART Data Element) – The name of the PowerSchool source field, followed in italics by the NJSMART data element name in cases where differences exist.

    • Data elements are displayed in the order in which they appear in the state NJ SLA report Registration Submission file layout.

    • In general, the PowerSchool field name is the same as the NJSMART data element name, but with spaces added between each word.

    • Where differences exist, the NJSMART data element name also appears in italics.

  • Description(PowerSchool Business Logic) - The definition of the data element, followed by any PowerSchool business logic used to generate the report output.

  • [Table] – The name of the table where the data is stored.

  • Field Name – The name of the field where the data is stored.

Note: The Table name appears in brackets with the Field Name directly following. Example: [Table]FieldName.

  • Field Length – The length of the data element when extracted.

  • Req'd – Identifies if the field is mandatory (M), optional (O) or conditional (C). Conditional data elements are output with a non-blank value only if applicable to the student.
