CAASPP INFO The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. Like last year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English language arts, mathematics, and science. Students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take the computer adaptive tests in English and math in spring of 2019. Students in grades 5, 8, and an assigned high school grade will also take the tests in science.
If you would like more information regarding your school’s schedule, please contact your school’s main office. Following the spring testing, students will receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be electronically distributed to parents/guardians in late summer/early fall and will include an overall score, and description of the student’s achievement level for English language arts, mathematics, and science if applicable. If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/.
Students enrolled in the Spanish Dual Immersion programs at Blacow Elementary School, Grimmer Elementary School, Vallejo Mill Elementary School, or Hopkins Junior High School in grades 3, 4, 6, and 7 will also take the California Spanish Assessment (CSA).
Parents and guardians have the right to exempt their child from taking the CAASPP assessments. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s participation, please contact your school’s principal.
