Introducing OnCourse's newest report, the Start Strong Registration Submission report. Start Strong assessment tools can provide educators with an early indication of the level of support students may need for this year. Districts that administer these assessments are encouraged to share the results with students, families, and educators. The information should be used in conjunction with other measures to identify some potential gaps in students’ understanding of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS).

What information is included in the report?
Information used in the Start Strong Registration Submission report is pulled from the State Assessment Registration tab within the student profile. This includes the Registration section and the Personal Needs Profile sections.
What fields have changed?
In the Registration section, there are changes in two areas:
