CAASPP - California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress

  • Testing occurs in Language Arts and Math for our grade 3-8 students. The test is completed online and is computer adaptive—the difficulty of the exam tailors itself to students' abilities.

    The assessment is made up of traditional test items, where students select correct answers, and items where students have to type in constructed responses. There also will be extended writing prompts and performance tasks that challenge students to apply their knowledge and skills to respond to real-world problems.
