CAASPP Testing

2024 Testing Window 

Each spring, students in grades three through eight and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

This year, your student will take the following test(s), depending on their grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy and mathematics in grades three through eight and grade eleven
  • California Science Test (CAST) in grades five, eight, eleven and/or twelve.

Our school’s testing window is from 4/1/24 to 4/12/24.

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 student can get the support he or she needs to be successful in school.

To learn more about these tests go to the Starting Smarter web page at:

https://ca.startingsmarter.org

Or review the Parent Guides to Understanding at:

In addition, you can look at sample test questions on the practice tests, which can be found on the CAASPP Web Portal at:

https://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html

You will receive your child’s results at or before the beginning of the next school year. The results will identify where your child is doing well or needs more help, so you can better support their learning at home and teachers can better support their learning in the classroom.

If you have any questions regarding your student’s participation in statewide assessments, please contact Mai Huynh, Assistant Principal at mhuynh@tustin.k12.ca.us.
