Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System was established on January 1, 2014, replacing the STAR System.  The CAASPP System encompasses the online Smarter Balanced Assessment in English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades 3-8 and 11.

 

At Country High School, students in grades 10 and 11 will take the Smarter Balanced tests during April 18th – April 29th. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about state testing this year.  

 

The assessment types, grade levels, and dates are as follows:

Type of Test

Grade Level

Testing Window

Science Paper and Pencil

Grades 10

 

 (April 7 – April 29)

Smarter Balanced EAP 

(Early Assessment Program)

ELA & Math

 

 

Grade 11

 

 

 

 (April 18 – April 29)

                         

To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.

 

Following the spring 2016 testing, students will receive individual score reports. 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.

 

As the parent or guardian, you have the option of excusing your child from any part of the CAASPP. If you would like to excuse your child from the test, you must submit the request in writing to your child’s school.  Please let the school know as soon as possible, so they can make alternate arrangements for your child.

 

If you would like more information, please visit the Vacaville USD website at www.vacavilleusd.org and the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/. If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact Mike Sullivan at (707) 453-6215.
