Testing

CAASPP pictureAs 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-baStudent taking CAASPP testsed 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.


This year, all studlents will be participating in the CAASPP on various dates and times from April through May, and each grade level will be assigned specific weeks to take the exam.  The CAASPP team will support our students and staff in many ways including, the assurance of technology working smoothly, providing enough time for students to take the multiple components of the exam, and creating an environment conducive to thinking and learning.
