CAASPP Assessment Information
If your child was in grades 3-8 last school year (2015-2016), they took part in the 2016 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). CAASPP is California’s new computer-based set of tests for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. These tests, developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), assess California’s Common Core Standards and replace the former Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program’s paper-based, multiple-choice California Standards Tests (CSTs) in ELA and Mathematics. Students in grades 5 and 8 also participated in a paper-pencil CAASPP assessment when science assessment.
Very soon, parents and guardians will be mailed individual student score reports for CAASPP, which will include detailed information about their child’s performance.
