Upcoming CAASPP State Testing
There are many ways to measure your child’s learning. Your child’s teacher uses report card grades, classroom work, teacher observations, and end-of-year statewide test results to get a complete picture of your child’s learning. Each year, students participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Your child will take the following tests, depending on their grade level or instructional program:
- Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts and math, required tests in grades 3–8 and 11. It is an untimed, adaptive, computer-based assessment.
- California Science Test (CAST), a required test in grades 5 and 8 and once in high school.
This year, SCVi will give the summative assessments in person. The testing schedule is listed below:
Make-up testing sessions will be ongoing from April 26th through June 17th. Please let your child’s facilitator know of any planned absences on testing dates so alternative arrangements can be made. Remote testing will be available for those who need it and will be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
