As you may already know from last spring, California’s academic assessment system formerly known as Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) has changed. The new assessment program is now titled the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). All district students, along with all public schools across California, will be participating in various assessments established by CAASPP.The newest and largest component of CAASPP is the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), a modern, technology-based program, with students performing the assessments on computers. These tests are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English and Math. California adopted the CCSS in 2010 to support the knowledge and skills students need to be well prepared for college and careers, no matter where they come from or where they live.
