The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, which has replaced the former STAR Test, is the new state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure all students leave high school ready for college and career. CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English–language arts and mathematics as well as science for 5th grade (CAST).

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 Web page at www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.

Following testing, students will receive individual score reports. These score reports will be sent home to parents and will include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement levels, and other information. It is important to note that these scores cannot be compared to scores that your child previously received on the STAR tests because this test is based on the new Common Core State Standards, involves different types of test questions, and will not be reported using the STAR Program reporting categories.

For more information, visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/. If you have questions regarding your child’s participation, contact Dr. Eister at 395-4580 or via email: ireneei@scusd.edu.
