The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System consists of the following assessments:
Smarter Balanced English language arts/literacy and mathematics
California Alternate Assessments for English language arts, mathematics, and science
California Science Tests
Standards-based Tests in Spanish
The CAASPP Portal Web site is your source for access to test administration systems, training resources and materials, the latest CAASPP news, and important dates regarding administering the CAASPP tests.
Students in grades three through eight and grade eleven will receive full-length summative tests for both English language arts/literacy and mathematics, with approximately seven to eight hours of total testing time for each student. Every device used for testing must have a secure browser installed. Stable, high-speed Internet is required.
The California Science Test (CAST) is an online assessment based on the California Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). All local educational agencies (LEAs) with eligible students in grades five and eight and in high school will administer the CAST field test online. Students will not receive scores for the field test; however, student participation data will be collected and reported for accountability.
The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity. Public school students in grades five, seven, and nine are required to take the PFT, whether or not they are enrolled in a physical education class or participate in a block schedule. Students who are physically unable to take the entire test battery are to be given as much of the test as his or her condition will permit.(Education Code (EC) Section 60800 and the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, section 1041).
