CAASPP Testing

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System is our state academic testing program. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests and performance tasks in English language arts and mathematics in grades 7, 8, and 11 and science in grades 8 and High School (Students must take it by senior year and most students take it in 10th or 11th grade). Your child will be taking these tests between February 21 and June 5. To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you can view the practice test at the California Department of Education Smarter Balanced site at
