Students Set for April CAASPP Testing

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress has begun for students in select grades throughout the Alta Loma School District.

“Much of the curriculum that students have been learning thus far applies directly to the CAASPP, said ALSD Superintendent James Moore.

The computer-based tests in English-language arts and mathematics are for students in third through eighth grades. Tests in science be will be administered to students in the fifth and eighth grades. Each school will post its individual testing schedule.

CAASPP, which five years ago replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program as the state academic testing program, is intended to provide information to teachers, school administrators and families that can be used to monitor student progress to better ensure that they leave school ready for high school, college and their future careers.

Following the testing period, families will receive a report of their child’s overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for the subjects that were tested and a comparison to last year’s CAASPP scores.
