Beginning the week of May 2, students in grades 3 through 8 will take the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP tests. The CAASPP is a computer-based assessment that will measure each student’s progress in English language arts and math.

Students in grades 5 and 8 also will take a science assessment. Schools will provide headphones, but students are allowed to bring their own wired headphones if they choose. Each school develops its own testing schedule.

The testing window will be open through June 3. While a good night’s rest, a healthy breakfast, and encouragement to do their best are always important for students, please take a moment to ensure these steps happen on testing days.

The CAASPP is designed to promote high-quality teaching and learning by giving information to teachers, students, and their families about what students know and can do.

The CAASPP letter is available for review here.
