The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is intended to provide information to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English language arts and mathematics for grades 2 - 6 and science for grade 5 only.
To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test webpage.
About two months after testing, students will receive individual score reports. Student score reports will include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English–language arts and mathematics, and other information. It is important to note that these scores cannot be compared to scores that your child previously received on the CSTs because this test is based on the new Common Core State Standards and involves different types of test questions.
If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP webpage. If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact Adrineh Sarkissian, Teacher Specialist at (818) 249-3187.
