Practice CAASPP Directions in PPT

  2. 2. WHAT IS THE CAASPP TEST? • CAASPP stands for California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress • The CAASPP was designed to test students on what they learn throughout their school year • Is based on State Standards • Students in grades 3-8 and11 all across California will participate in the test • Tests are now digital and completed on iPads* • Districts use the data from the CAASPP to make determinations about student progress and areas to focus on in the future • Learn more about the CAASPP here. **SPED students may take a paper pencil test and/or modified test depending on IEP
  3. 3. HOW CAN I HELP MY CHILD PREPARE? • The CAASPP website provides a great deal of information about the test; in addition, there are practice tests available to students of all testing grade levels (3-8, and 11). • Taking practice tests, even small blocks of tests, will help your child get comfortable with the format and embedded tools of the CAASPP. • Exposure to the CAASPP practice tests can help relieve student anxiety about testing. • The tests are easy to access and navigate.

  9. 9. HOW TO TAKE THE PRACTICE TEST STEP 6 • On this page, you will be directed to all the available tests for the grade level. Pick any and take them up to 99 times each! In this case, a student could take Math or English tests for 4th grade.

For instance, you can change the test from English to Spanish or Braille, or change options for mark for review, glossary, or translations, just to name a few. Choose options based on what your student will experience on the test. Note: If your child does not have special accommodations, it is likely they will need to keep the setting as they are. • Once you are happy with your settings, click select at the bottom.
  11. 11. HOW TO TAKE THE PRACTICE TESTS STEP 8 • The next page asks that you confirm you are taking the test of your choice. If everything looks good, click “Yes, Start My Test.”
