CAASPP

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress on an annual basis and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career.  CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English–language arts and mathematics as well as an online science pilot test.

 

This spring, students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take computer-based tests in English-Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and selected high school grades will take a computer-based Science pilot test. To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based tests, you and your child can view the practice tests online at the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Practice Test Web page at http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.

 

Following spring 2017 CAASPP testing, individual student score reports displaying CAASPP results will be distributed to parents. Student score reports will include an overall score and a description of the student’s achievement level for ELA and Mathematics. Score reports for students in grades 5, 8 and selected high school grades will not include results of the Science test.  Early Assessment Program (EAP) results will be included on the score reports for students in grade 11, providing an early indication of readiness for college-level coursework.  The EAP is embedded within the computer-based test for all grade 11 students; no additional test is required.

 

The purpose of CAASPP is to assist teachers, administrators, students and their parents in improving learning and achievement.  Results from the CAASPP assessments will be used, along with other available data, for school and program placement of students, to determine the impact of selected curriculum and programs, and to make other instructional plans at your child’s school.  As the parent or guardian, you have the option of excusing your child from any part of the CAASPP.  If you wish to excuse your child, please submit your request in writing to your child’s school so that it can be kept on file with the school district [Education Code 60615]. 

 

If you would like more information, please visit the “Student & Parents” tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/.

 

Sincerely,

 

Principal

Estimados Padres de Familia/Tutores:

 

Los Exámenes de Rendimiento y Progreso de los Estudiantes de California (CAASPP, según sus siglas en inglés) son un programa estatal de exámenes académicos. El CAASPP es un sistema diseñado con la finalidad de proporcionar información que pueda ser utilizada para supervisar el progreso de los estudiantes de manera anual, así como también para asegurarse de que todos los estudiantes que egresan de las escuelas preparatorias están preparados para sus estudios universitarios y carreras profesionales. El CAASPP incluye exámenes adaptados en programas de computadoras para el área de Artes de Lenguaje del Idioma Inglés (ELA) y matemáticas, así como también incluye un examen piloto en el área de ciencias.

 

Esta primavera, los estudiantes de 3º a 8º y 11º grado escolar presentarán los exámenes en programas de computadoras para el área de Artes de Lenguaje del Idioma Inglés (ELA) y matemáticas. Además, los estudiantes de 5º, 8º y de algunos grados escolares selectos de escuela preparatoria, presentarán un examen piloto en programas de computadoras en el área de ciencias. Para obtener mayor información relacionada con el tipo de preguntas que contienen los exámenes adaptados en programas de computadoras, usted y su hijo(a) pueden ver los exámenes de práctica que se encuentran en línea visitando Exámenes de Rendimiento y Progreso de los Estudiantes de California (CAASPP) en http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.

 

Después del periodo de Exámenes de Rendimiento y Progreso de los Estudiantes de California (CAASPP), administrados en la primavera de 2017, los padres de familia recibirán los reportes de los resultados individuales obtenidos por sus estudiantes en los exámenes CAASPP.  Los reportes incluirán una puntuación global y una descripción del nivel de rendimiento del estudiante en el área de Artes de Lenguaje del Idioma Inglés (ELA) y matemáticas. Los reportes de los resultados de los estudiantes de 5º, 8º y de algunos grados escolares selectos de escuela preparatoria no incluirán resultados del examen de ciencias. Los resultados del Programa de Evaluación Temprana (EAP) serán incluidos en el reporte de resultados de los estudiantes de 11º grado escolar, con la finalidad de proporcionar una indicación temprana respecto a su nivel de preparación para los cursos de nivel universitario. El programa EAP está integrado dentro de los exámenes adaptados en los programas de computadoras diseñados para todos los estudiantes de 11º grado escolar; no se requiere ningún examen adicional.

 

El propósito de los exámenes CAASPP es brindar ayuda para que los maestros, administradores, estudiantes y padres de los estudiantes puedan mejorar el aprendizaje y el logro académico de los estudiantes. Los resultados de los exámenes CAASPP serán utilizados, junto con otros datos disponibles, para determinar la ubicación y los programas escolares de los estudiantes, para determinar el impacto de los programas y el plan de estudios seleccionado y para realizar otros planes educativos en la escuela de su hijo(a). Como padre/madre de familia o tutor, usted tiene la opción de solicitar que su hijo(a) quede exento de participar en cualquier componente del examen CAASPP. Si desea que su hijo(a) no presente alguna parte del examen, por favor, envíe su petición por escrito a la escuela de su hijo(a) para archivarla en los expedientes del distrito escolar [Código de Educación 60615]. 

 

Para mayor información, favor de visitar la sección “Students & Parents” (Estudiantes y Padres)  en la página de Internet de CAASPP del Departamento de Educación de California (CDE) en http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/.

 

Atentamente,

 

Director
