The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the state academic testing program that includes the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics and the California Science Test (CAST).
CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and careers.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment System utilizes computer-based tests and performance tasks that allow students to show what they know and are able to do. It is based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and Mathematics and has three components designed to support teaching and learning throughout the year: the summative assessments, the interim assessments, and the Digital Library of formative assessment tools.
HBCSD will be administering CAASPP assessments in the Spring of 2024.
ELA and Math: Grades 3-8
Science Grades 5 and 8
