California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP Testing)

What is caassp.png?

Established January 1, 2014, the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is based on the state’s new California Common Core State Standards (CA CCSS) for English–language arts (ELA) and mathematics, adopted by the California State Board of Education in 2010. This new system replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program that was based on 1997 standards.
The primary goal of the new statewide testing program is to better prepare all students for college and careers in the twenty-first century. Computer-based assessments, developed through the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, form the cornerstone for CAASPP.

In California, all students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 will participate in the 2015 Smarter Balanced tests, which include both ELA and mathematics content areas. These tests are administered online.

CAASPP testing will begin in  mid April for Burbank students in grades 3-6.   Release test questions for practice are available on the California Department of Education web site: It is very important that every child attends school on these dates and is on time.  Be sure your child gets a good nights rest and has a good breakfast so that they are alert and can do their best on these tests.  If your child has to miss any of these days due to illness, please contact the office at 723-3805 and report the absence. .

Robbins was visiting the school as part of the Turnaround Arts program, an intensive arts education resource for struggling schools that is part of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
