Hello CMP Families,

This Spring will be our third year of participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, the state academic testing program. Students in third through eighth grade will be participating in the computer adaptive CAASPP, for English/Language Arts and Mathematics. New this year is the field test of the California Science Test or CAST, which our fifth and eighth grade students will take. This computerized test will replace the paper and pencil science test our fifth and eighth grade students took last year. As a field test, students will not receive scores for science this year.

Additional Chromebooks were purchased again this year for our students in anticipation of these on-line state assessments and to enhance computer use in the classroom. We currently have a Chromebook for each third through eighth grade student. Prior to administration of CAASPP, students will have the opportunity to participate in a training test, if needed, and interim assessments to help students become comfortable with process of online testing.

In the coming weeks you will be receiving more detailed student testing information through campus communications. Your student’s teacher will let you know when their classroom will be testing. Parents may opt their student out of testing; however, we strongly encourage every student to participate. The tests are one indicator of how our students are progressing, and assists us in program planning.

Please do not hesitate to contact your campus principal or me if you have any questions.
