The third grade students will take the CAASPP test on the following days, April 21st & 27th, May 8th & 11th. Please be sure to have your child at school on time and for the duration of the day. This is the first time your child will be taking this test. The CAASPP test is new and still in the refinement stages in an attempt to better a line it with the Common Core standards. Because the test is still being refined, your child’s results may not be a direct reflection on your child's academic levels. I will continue to support the children in all academic subjects and encourage the children to always do their best.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a team to help your child be successful.
Here is a message sent to the parents from our Superintendent regarding the CAASPP.
This spring, students will take part in the first statewide administration of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) for students in grades three through eight and grade eleven for the 2014-15 school year. These computer-based tests will replace California’s former paper-based, multiple-choice Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and math and will be aligned to the new California State Standards.
One particular area of concern is the anticipated “dip” in student scores. It is important to understand that these new results will measure proficiency on a different and more rigorous curriculum, using an assessment system that is new for students and teachers. “Proficiency” on these new standards is not comparable to proficiency on the previous state standards, and student results should be considered in this context. Scores from the new assessments will represent a baseline and no student, parent or teacher should be discouraged by the scores. Rather, the results will provide an opportunity to focus on the needs of students and support teachers and schools in their work.
California’s new assessment system represents the next step in the comprehensive plan to help students succeed and to fulfill our district’s mission: To provide high quality teaching and learning for all.
