California Assessment of Student Performance & Progress (CAASPP)

New Practice and Updated Training Tests for the California Science Test

The new online practice tests and updated training tests for the California Science Test (CAST) are available on the CAASPP Online Practice and Training Tests Portal. The new CAST practice tests mirror the depth and breadth of content of the operational test. One test per grade (grades five and eight and high school) is available, and three performance tasks—one from each science domain—are included. The practice and training tests feature all the accessibility resources on the operational CAST.

New features include:

  • Expandable items that minimize scrolling for students by allowing the ability to expand items and toggle between full and split screens
  • Hmong glossary as a designated support
  • Streamlining as a designated support
  • Periodic table that can be resized and moved within the item and is accessible for students using Job Access with Speech (JAWS)
