• California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System Score Reporting

    The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System provides parents, students and teachers a clearer window on whether students are on track to graduate high school, be ready for college and the workplace. 

    Parents and students will receive the results of these assessments from Dublin Unified School District in a readable and easy-to-understand format.  Parents can use this information to better communicate with teachers and school administrators about their child's success. 

     Assessment for Improving Teaching and Learning

    The CAASSP includes a number of differences from most state assessments today. 

    •  The majority of these assessments are administered online and go beyond multiple choice questions to include performance tasks that allow students to demonstrate research, writing and analytical skills. 
    • Accommodations for students with disabilities and English language learners are built into the system so that the progress of students can be accurately measured. 
    • An online reporting system provides clear, easy-to-understand data on student achievement and growth. These reports will present parents, teachers, principals and other local and state leaders with information they can use to help students make even greater progress. 

    The CAASPP System gives parents and students more accurate and actionable information about what students are learning. One major difference, the on-line (SBAC) portion of these assessments are computer adaptive, they will also provide better information about the needs and successes of individual students.  

    These next-generation assessments are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language arts/literacy and mathematics for grades 3-8 and 11. That means students in all states will be taught to the same high standards. Students in grades 5, 8 and 10 will also participate in the CST Science exam. 

    All students that have completed standardized CAASPP assessments will receive individual student score reports upon returning for the new school year. 

    Test Score Guide Web site will give you information about the overall score, what level that score falls into, and the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

    Videos and Parent Guides to the Summative Assessment are available in both English and Spanish on the California Department of Education’s CAASPP Student Score Report Information Web page at CAASPP Student Score Report Information

    If your student is in grade 11, you will also find his or her Early Assessment Program (EAP) status reported on the back of the Student Score Report.  EAP uses student scores on theSmarter Balanced Summative Assessments for ELA and mathematics to show a student’s readiness for college-level coursework.

    Students will receive an EAP level for ELA and an EAP level for mathematics separately, depending on their scores in those sections.

    EAP status is used by the California State University (CSU) and participating California Community Colleges (CCCs). Student scores will place them in one of four EAP levels, listed on the right.
