CAASP testing

Dear Parent/Guardian:


The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is the statewide assessment system used by California public schools. The CAASPP program is intended to provide information used to monitor student progress and help them succeed, ensuring that all students leave high school ready for college and career.


CAASPP computer-based tests are based on California Common Core State Standards for English language arts/literacy and mathematics. These assessments include the Smarter Balanced computer adaptive tests in English language arts/literacy and mathematics and the California Alternate Assessment for some students with disabilities.


SFUSD students in grades 3-8 and 11 will participate in CAASPP testing beginning in March 2017. In addition, students in grades 5, 8, and 10 will take the California Science Test (CAST), a new computer-based science assessment based on Next Generation Science Standards.


To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test Web page at


Following the spring 2017 testing, students receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be mailed to parents in the beginning of school year 2017-18. The detailed reports include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English language arts and mathematics, science (if a participating grade) and other information. If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at


Parents/Guardians have the right to request an exemption from all or part of CAASPP testing. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s participation, please contact John Burke ( at the SFUSD Achievement Assessments Office at  (415) 241-6400.
