It is time for the annual Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) / California Assessment of student performance and Progress (CAASPP) formerly STAR. SBAC/CAASPP testing is required by state law. Your son/daughter will be required to come 2 sessions in order to complete ALL of the testing in the box below.
The tests are not timed so ending times are estimates. Students may finish earlier or later than scheduled. We’re asking that you have alternate transportation plans or be flexible with ending times. Students may call from the office when they finish testing and leave at a different time.
ALL Testing will be done in room F3 (Mr. Pacheco’s classroom)
If you as a parent would like to learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test web page at http://ww.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.
PLEASE help support our school by making sure your son/daughter is well fed and rested, arrives on time, and does their best on ALL tests.
ALL cell phones and electronic devices MUST be turned off and will be collected by test examiner and returned only when student is completely finished testing.
You must call 423-3609 if your son/daughter cannot attend any of the sessions.
Your son/daughter’s SBAC/CAASPP 2017 test report will be mailed to your home in late August.
It is important to note that these scores cannot be compared to scores that your child previously received on the STAR Program tests because this test is based on the new Common Core State Standards and involves different types of test questions.
