CAASPP Smarter Balance
CAASPP testing occurs annually during the spring semester and follows CDE’s annual guidelines.
California Science Test (CAST)
All students enrolled in grades five and eight will be administered the CAST field test. High school students will be selected by grade to participate once (i.e., grade ten, eleven, or twelve).
English Language Proficiency (ELPAC)
The ELPAC is the current required state test for English language proficiency that must be given to students whose primary language is other than English. The ELPAC is the successor to the California English Language Development Test (CELDT).
Physical Fitness Test (PFT)
Each year public schools in California are required to assess all 5th, 7th, and 9th-grade students in physical fitness. As an independent study (non-site based) school, this puts us in a unique situation for testing our students. We must rely on families, teachers, and administration staff to work together to complete this task.
