California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assesses students in grades 3-8 and 11. The CAASPP system is designed to give information to teachers, students, and their families about what students know and are able to do and whether they are on track to be ready for success in college or career when they graduate from high school.  Students take tests in English/Language Arts and Mathematics online using a computer. These tests are also known as the Smarter Balanced Assessments. Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 also take the California Science Tests (CAST) that align with the Next Generation Science Standards.
General information about  CAASPP test scores, as well as CAASPP school, district, and statewide scores can be found on the California Department of Education CAASPP Test Results web page.
