California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP):
The assessments that comprise the CAASPP administration include computer-based and paper-pencil assessments. The computer-based assessments are the Smarter Balanced English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics tests. The paper-pencil assessments include the science assessments—the California Standards Tests (CSTs) for Science, the California Modified Assessment (CMA) for Science, and California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA) for Science. Student reports for the 2015-2016 school year will be mailed home August 2016. Below are resources to help you understand the assessment results and what they mean for your child.
