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 7 and May 12, 2014.

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. Visit http://www.sjusd.org/parents/assessment-information/ for complete testing information and dates.
