CA Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

New State Academic Assessments

The primary purpose of state testing is to provide parents and students with more accurate information about how well students are learning. Teachers want to know what students know so they can adjust their instruction.  Like class assignments and report cards, tests provide one more way to monitor student progress.

California's new student assessment system is known as California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which  is part of a larger plan for ensuring high-quality teaching and learning in every school.

What is Smarter Balanced Assessment?

Smarter Balanced Assessment: In California, all students in grades 3-8 and 11, will participate in the Smarter Balanced CAASPP Test (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) The tests includes both English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics content areas. The tests are administered entirely online.

TVUSD has compiled a list of resources to help parents understand the new assessment system.   Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with some of the resources provided.  We know that the "new" test results can cause some anxiety and concerns and it is completely understandable.  Hopefully the information below will be a roadmap to assist you.
