California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress Reports (CAASPP):

  • New measure for assessing student relative to the new Common Core State Standards
  • Parents/guardians will receive individual student scores; based on computer-based tests in English language arts/literacy and mathematics
  • Score will range from 2,000 to 3,000
  • Four rating levels include: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded
  • Student strengths and concerns will be noted
  • English focus: reading, writing, listening, and research
  • Mathematics focus: problem solving, using concepts and procedures and communicating mathematical reasoning
  • Each of these areas (English and mathematics) will be rated: below standard, at or near standard, and above standard
  • Grade 11 students will also receive a rating on their readiness for credit-bearing college-level work
  • Grades 5 and 8 will also receive individual scores for the California Standards Test for Science
  • Refrain from comparisons between the CAASPP and previous tests; they are different
