What do your CAASPP Math & English scores mean?
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.
