Each spring, 11th-grade students participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) to provide information about their skills in English-language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. These assessments reflect California’s rigorous academic standards and allow students to demonstrate analytical writing and critical thinking skills as well as their knowledge of facts. CAASPP assessments provide one piece of information about student progress and should always be interpreted as one of multiple measures of a student’s skills.

Given the current circumstances, your student will take state tests remotely this year. Please review the following guidelines:
- You may assist your student with setting up the technology used to enter the test session.
- To maintain test security, do not talk about the test questions or any test materials with anyone before, during, or after the test.
- No one may record the test, or use a camera or other device to take pictures of the test questions or of your student taking the test. This helps to keep the questions confidential.
- During the test, a teacher will observe your student using a web camera and microphone. The camera is only used to observe your student and their surroundings during the test and will not record the session.
- If your student cannot use the computer’s camera, microphone, and speaker, or headphones during remote testing, you may contact your home school site to check out a district device.
Helping Your Student Prepare for Testing
Here are some tips to help prepare your student for testing:
- Talk about the tests and encourage your student to try their best.
- Take a practice test with your student at http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.
- Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep and eats a nutritious breakfast before testing.
