California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

Signed into law on October 2, 2013, AB 484 (Bonilla) establishes the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessment system. The CAASPP system replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The primary purpose of the CAASPP system is to assist teachers, administrators, and pupils and their parents by promoting high-quality teaching and learning through the use of a variety of assessment approaches and item types. The CAASPP will be implemented over multiple school years by the California Department of Education. 

For the 2013–14 school year, CAASPP is comprised of the following:

  • Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) field tests of the summative assessments for English–language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades three through eight and selected students in grades 10 and 11. Each participating student will take abbreviated versions of the ELA and mathematics Field Tests.
  • Grade-level science assessments, including the California Standards Tests (CSTs), California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA), and the California Modified Assessment (CMA), in grades five, eight, and ten.
  • Early Assessment Program in ELA and mathematics.
  • CAPA for ELA and mathematics in grades two through eleven.
