New Assessment Testing Coming This Year
This is an exciting time for everyone at Corning Elementary!
We, along with thousands of schools across California, are participating in a field test of a modern assessment system designed to help shape teaching and learning in the classroom. Known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress – or CAASPP – these computer-based tests replace the STAR program.
These tests are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English and Math, which California adopted in 2010 to describe what knowledge and skills students need to be well-prepared for college and careers, no matter where they come from or where they live.
Part of the goal of the field test this year is to determine how well individual questions allow students to demonstrate what they know and still need to learn. We are also taking this opportunity to see how well our technical capabilities meet the demands of computer-based assessments, and to see what resources our teachers and schools may yet need.
Finally, this year also gives your student an opportunity to try out the new system without consequences. All of this combined means that we will not be capturing scores this year. Instead, we will use what we learn from this field test to help ensure a successful launch of the system in the 2014-15 school year.
Students exempt from participating in the Spring 2014 Field Test are:
If your child is in grade 5 or 8, they will also still participate in STAR testing for Science and will either take the California Standards Test (CST) or the California Modified Assessment (CMA).
If you would like more information, please visit the California Department of Education Smarter Balanced web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/smarterfieldtest.asp.
The staff of Corning Union Elementary School District sincerely hopes that the testing of your student will be a positive experience. Please feel free to call your child’s school if you have any questions about this test or about your child’s participation in the testing.
