Preparing for the State Testing

It's important to remember that a lack of sleep can impact your student's behavior and ability to have a successful day. So, make sure your student gets at least 8-10 hours of sleep. That is, their sleep routine should begin no later than 9 PM! Secondly, make sure their student computer device is fully charged and brought to school each day.

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

California's new student assessment system is now known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The CAASPP System replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The primary purpose of CAASPP is to assist teachers, administrators, and pupils and their parents by promoting high-quality teaching and learning through the use of a variety of assessment approaches and item types.

Getting Familiar with the Test

The practice tests provide students with grade-specific testing experiences that are similar in structure and format to the summative assessments. The training tests provide students with the opportunity to quickly become familiar with the software and interface features. The training tests are organized by grade bands (e.g., 3 –5).
