California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System

Each year students in grades three through eight and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).  The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments and the CAST are online tests that measure what your student knows and is able to do,  The tests include many different types of questions that allow students to interact with the test questions.  Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support needed to be successful in school.
