State Assessments

 

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is California’s new academic testing program replacing the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. Pursuant to California Education Code 60615, parents/guardians may submit to the school a written request to excuse their child from any or all parts of CAASPP. CAASPP consists of the following assessments:

  • Smarter Balanced Assessments – The Summative Assessments, Interim Assessments, and Digital Library are all part of the CAASPP System.

  • Alternate Assessments for ELA and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 are administered to students with severe cognitive disabilities. Test items are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and are based on the Core Content Connectors (CCCs).

  • Science Assessments in grades 5 and 8, California Standards Tests [CST], California Modified Assessment [CMA], and California Alternate Performance Assessment [CAPA]) are federally-required and will continue to be administered until replacement assessments are available.

Physical Fitness Test (PFT) the physical fitness of students in grades 5 and 7 in the following areas: aerobiccapacity, body composition, upper body strength, abdominal strength, trunk strength, and flexibility. Students are scored as “within the Healthy Fitness Zone,” or “Needs Improvement - Some Risk,” or "Needs Improvement - Health Risk."
