We invite you to answer a few questions about your technology use. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete on any device with internet access.

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, which has replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting, or STAR Program, is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. The CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English–language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science. 

The testing window for our students is as follows:

  8th grade April 11-15

  7th grade April 18-2

  6th grade April 25-29

  4/5 and 5th grades May 2-6

  3rd and 4th grades May 9-13

 You are the most important partner in your child’s learning process. During this testing period when students have to spend  extended time concentrating on test questions we request the following:

  • Have a nutritious breakfast everyday
  • Get a good night’s rest
  • Ask your child how the test is going
  • Please make sure your child attends school daily and arrives on time


Students will receive individual score reports within one month after the official release of scores September 2016. Student score reports will be sent home to parents and will include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English–language arts and mathematics, and other information. It is important to note that these scores cannot be compared to scores that your child previously received on the STAR Program tests because this test is based on the new Common Core State Standards, involves different types of test questions, and will not be reported using the STAR Program reporting categories.
