California Assessment of Student Performance & Progress
Each spring, students in grades 3 – 8, take CAASPP test. The CAASPP Program looks at how well schools and students are performing.
Students take tests in:
- Math, in Grades 3 – 8
- Reading, in Grades 3 – 8
- Science, in Grades 5, 8
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 identify a student’s strengths and areas for improvement. Individual students reports (ISR) will be mailed home annually, once the district receives the reports from the state.
