Welcome to Horace Mann

Assessment Update

Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, California is moving to the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These computer-based tests replace the STAR program. CAASPP is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English and math, which California adopted in 2010 to describe what knowledge and skills students need to be well prepared for college and careers, no matter where they come from or where they live.

This year, CAASPP is being field tested to determine how well individual questions allow students to demonstrate what they know and still need to learn.

Who will take the test?
All students in grades 3-8 and in grade 11.

When?
Between April 22 and May 2, 2014 at Horace Mann.

Will parents receive test results?
No. Because this is a field test to determine how effective CAASPP is, schools, districts, and students/families will not receive scores.

Últimas noticias sobre los exámenes estatales

A partir del ciclo escolar 2013-2014, California pondrá en marcha la nueva Evaluación de Desempeño y Progreso Estudiantil de California (CAASPP, por sus siglas en inglés).  Estos exámenes que se tomarán vía computadora reemplazarán al programa STAR.  El nuevo examen CAASPP está alineado con los estándares académicos, comunes y fundamentales de Inglés y Matemáticas que California adoptó en 2010 para describir cuáles conocimientos y habilidades necesitan tener los estudiantes a fin de estar bien preparados para los estudios universitarios y las carreras profesionales, independientemente de su lugar de procedencia o la ubicación de su domicilio.

Este año, el CAASPP se pondrá a prueba para determinar qué tan bien funcionan las preguntas individuales de dicho examen a fin de que los estudiantes demuestren lo que saben y lo que todavía necesitan aprender.

¿Quién tomará este examen?
Todos los estudiantes del 3º al 8º grado y los estudiantes del 11º grado.

¿Cuándo?
Entre el 22 de abril y el 2 de mayo de 2014 a Horace Mann.

¿Recibirán los padres los resultados de este examen?

No. Debido a que este ciclo escolar el examen CAASPP únicamente se está poniendo a prueba para determinar cuán eficiente es, las escuelas, los distritos escolares, los estudiantes y sus familias no recibirán los resultados.
