Shortly before school ended for the year, students participated in the 2015–16 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which includes the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. These tests are based on California’s challenging academic standards, which include the ability to write clearly, think critically, and solve problems—the very skills needed to succeed in college and a 21st century career. These skills take time and effort to master, but our students will need them to succeed in the long run.


In our school district, we see a student’s test results as one measure of his or her academic progress. They will not be used to determine whether a student moves to the next grade. Schools can use the results to identify specific areas in which to focus more attention in the next school year, while teachers can use the results to identify and address individual student needs. We recommend that parents and/or guardians discuss the test results with their child’s teacher.


Student score reports will be mailed home over the next several weeks. The student score report shows your child’s achievement for ELA and math. Please take a few moments to review it. You’ll notice that along with an overall score for each subject, there is also information about how your child performed in different skill areas associated with ELA and math. If your child tested in 2015, you’ll notice that the score report presents two years of data—for 2015 and 2016—which allows you to see your child’s progress over the last year.


Here are some resources to assist in understanding the information in the student score reports:
