SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENTS COMING
California is changing the way we assess our students' progress. STAR CSTs are being replaced by the Smarter Balanced tests. California's new monitoring system will be called CAASPP(California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress). The assessments will be a shift in the way we have been assessing. Students will be taking ELA, Math, and performance tests on a computer. Students will be assessed by responding in writing, multiple choice, and performing problem solving tasks. Over the next month, students in grades 3-8 will be taking the tests. Grades 3 and 4 will begin next week and test over a two week period. Since this is a field test, scores for this year will not be provided.
