Students in grades 3-8 participate in mandatory state testing through CAASPP. They are tested in Mathematics and English Language Arts. This online, adaptive test is called Smarter Balanced and is conducted towards the end of the year.
Students in 5th and 8th grade will also take the California Science Test (CAST) which is based on the California Next Generation Science Standards. This is a mandatory state test for students unless a student is eligible for the California Alternate Assessment due to a significant disability.
