This brief student video gives key information about the upcoming Smarter Balanced Field Test, where to find the online practice test, and how to get additional information for the State of California.

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Results


 

Smarter Balanced & Common Core

California Assessment of Student Performmance and Progress

The CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress will only be given to Eleventh Grade students in the first week of April and will take place over a two-day period of time.  

 

The schedule for the week is linked here. 

 

Eleventh Grade students will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment (Tuesday, April 4, 2017, is ELA and Wednesday, April 5, 2017, is Math. These tests are computer adaptive. Additionally, Eleventh Grade students will be taking the CAST (California Science Test) pilot test, that is an online test based on the California Next Generation Science Standards, on Wednesday.

 

Important Considerations:

 

The Smarter Balanced Test is given to all 11th-grade students which assess their English and Mathematics abilities as part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) which is required by California State Law.

 

The Smarter Balanced test has two components: 1) an English and Math computer adaptive component where the difficulty level changes based on the student's responses and 2) An English and Math performance task that has fewer questions; however, there is more depth. Students use a computer on both components of the test. At Lynbrook we primarily use Chromebooks.

 

The tests are untimed; however, the testing coordinator at Lynbrook uses a guideline, based on the State's recommended time frame, for planning logistical aspects of test administration; therefore the bell schedule is changed during the testing week to ensure optimal testing conditions for all students.

 

It is crucial for our students to take this test for the purposes of Lynbrook's requirement and FUHSD to report testing information to the State Department. As a result, we are expected to make every effort to test 100% of our students. If Lynbrook fails to meet minimum requirements of testing all students, this can have a negative impact on Lynbrook High School as a whole.  

College Readiness Tests (EAP) for Juniors

Annually Juniors take part in the EAP (Early Assessment Program) to assess college-readiness.

 

In the past, the EAP assessment was administered in the context of the California Standards Test under the S.T.A.R. program at different times of the year. Currently, the Smarter Balanced Assessment is now solely used to determine EAP achievement levels and provide students, parents, and school/district personnel with an indicator of predicted college readiness in order to take college-level English and mathematics courses when students enter college.

 

Please see the joint letter from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chancellor of The California State University and Chancellor of California Community Colleges that explained this change as of last year.

What is Common Core?

The Common Core is a single set of clear educational standards to ensure that students across the country have the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful.  The goal is to have a universally high set of educational standards that ensure students, no matter where they live, are well prepared.

California Department of Education: About the Common Core

How Has Common Core Changed Testing At Lynbrook?

In the past, students took the CST (California Standards Tests) in the context of the STAR program; however, in 2014 California moved away from giving the CST's and started giving the Smarter Balanced tests in the context of CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance). In other words, Smarter Balanced is the new CST and CAASPP is the New STAR.
