Overview of CAASPP Testing
Each spring, students in grades 3 - 8, 10 & 11 take a CAASPP test. The CAASPP Program looks at how well schools and students are performing. Students take tests in:
- math Grades 3 - 8, 11 Smarter Balance, on-line test
- reading Grades 3 - 8, 11 Smarter Balance, on-line test
- science Grades 5, 8 & 10 CST Science, paper-pencil test
The CAASPP Program includes four tests: the Smarter Balance Math & Reading Test, the CST Science Test, the California Alternate Assessment, and the Standards-based Tests in Spanish.
Teachers and parents can use test results to improve student learning. Individual students reports (ISR) will be mailed home in September 2015.
