California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance (CAASPP)
Resources For Parents
It is anticipated that parents will receive their child’s 2017 individual report in early August. These reports will include detailed information about their child's performance on computer-based tests in English language arts/literacy (ELA), mathematics, and science for grades 5 and 8. Now posted on the California Department of Education (CDE) Web site is the Video: "Understanding Your 2016–17 Student Score Report". Approximately five-minutes in length, this video is an excellent resource for parents and students to help them better understand the 2016–17 Student Score Report, which details the student’s standardized testing results.
While classroom instruction at all grade levels has shifted, the new State accountability system is in the process of being developed and will take into consideration state assessments and other indicators of school success. View a summary of district 2016 results (PDF). Comprehensive information about the state assessment system as well as comprehensive results can be viewed at the CAASPP website.
We encourage you to visit CAASPP: Keeping California's Students on Track for College and Career. This resource is designed to be a gateway for understanding student scores on the CAASPP. Additionally, California has developed the following resources for parents and guardians to help understand student score reports:

A Single Point of Information
The scores parents receive are just one piece of information to describe a student's achievement and academic progress. Classroom projects, writing assignments, math exercises, and our own tests given throughout the year all contribute important information as we build a clear picture of how each student is progressing. As you assess your child's progress, we recommend that you too consider the annual state test scores just one piece of information. Take a look at your child's classroom accomplishments as well as the scores, and use this complete body of information when helping your child set goals for improvement. We also invite and encourage you to participate in our Parent University to learn more about the California content standards.
A New Testing System Built to Help
This is the second year that we have assessed the progress we expect our students to make over time toward college and career readiness. We are in a transition period—we have identified new skills that students should master, we have been teaching those skills in new ways, and now we are assessing progress with a new test. Additionally, we have raised expectations for what students should be able to do, so this year's results may show that students will need to make substantial progress to master the desired skills. As students spend more time with the new curriculum, their skills will improve.
This past spring, students in grades three through eight took part in the first statewide administration of the Smarter Balanced Assessments, which are part of an overall testing system called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The tests are an academic check-up, designed to give teachers feedback they need to improve instruction and the tools to improve teaching and learning.
Scores: Re-setting the System
The new tests are fundamentally different from the old exams to make any reliable comparisons between old scores and new. Student and district scores cannot be compared to scores previously reported on the STAR Program tests because this test is based on the new content standards, involves different types of test questions, and will not be reported using the STAR Program reporting categories.
Based on trial runs of some test questions in California and other states, many students will need to make significant progress to reach the standards set for math and literacy that accompany college and career readiness. No student, parent, or teacher should be discouraged by scores, which will never be used to determine whether a student moves on to the next grade. Rather, the results will provide an opportunity to focus on the needs of students and support teachers and schools in their work.
Patience and Persistence
California's assessment system represents the next step in our comprehensive plan to promote high-quality teaching and learning and improve student outcomes. Teachers in California support these changes because, unlike in other states, the primary purpose of testing here is to support learning, not to impose high-stakes consequences. This plan recognizes that assessments can play a role in promoting high-quality instruction.
In a state as diverse and complex as California, adjustments will always be needed to make lasting progress. Patience and persistence will be required to help our schools continue to succeed during this time of transition.
