Summary

This paper describes the meeting of the Reading and Writing Advisory Committee of the New Jersey Basic Skills Council with selected high school English teachers and administrators. This panel established cut scores for statewide interpretation of the New Jersey College Basic Skills Placement Test (NJCBSPT). The NJCBSPT is administered to all students admitted to New Jersey public colleges and universities. It is a placement test for remedial courses, according to standards set by each college, and a statewide basic skills assessment instrument. By advance agreement, the panelists used the Nedelsky Method for setting basic skills proficiency cut scores. Ground rules were made on the first day, objective test probability judgments on the second, and essay judgments on the third. Cut scores established are: Reading Comprehension, 165; Sentence Structure, 165; Logical Relationships, 168; Essay, 7; Composition, 169; Total English, 165. Attachments include: a description of the NJCBSPT; a list of conference panelists; the writing rubric; a Nedelsky Method Scoring Sheet; the essay rubric and scoring sheet; and a memorandum containing three panel recommendations and comments concerning the panel's limitations and potential.
