Reporting of results of the 2014-15 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which is also known as the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), has been temporarily delayed by the State.
CAASPP is the State’s new, computer-based assessment in English language arts and mathematics. The computerized assessments are adaptive, and take into account the student’s correct or incorrect answers to generate succeeding questions. The intent of these new assessments, which replace the STAR test, is to provide a more complete understanding of student knowledge and critical thinking skills for college and career readiness.
During the 2014-15 school year, the District administered the new CAASPP to all students in grades 3–8 and 11. The District expected to receive the results from the State early in the summer. Once received, the District planned to produce individual student score reports and mail the reports to families by the end of the summer. Nonetheless, the State temporarily delayed reporting results to districts, so the District now anticipates mailing individual score reports to families in September.
