In Spring 2019, students in grades 5, 8, and 12 will also take the CA Science Test (CAST). 

 

CAA - California Alternate Assessment

The CAA is for students who have an IEP that states that the most appropriate test for a student is the CAA.  

 

ELPAC - English Language Proficiency Assessments for California

All students whose home language is not English are required by law to take the ELPAC. ELPAC  results help schools identify students who need support in improving their reading, writing, and speaking skills in English. As students are learning English, the test is given each year to monitor and measure improvement. 

 

California Physical Fitness Test - PFT

Students in grades 5, 7, and 9 take the PFT each spring. The test has six parts and students must pass 5 to be considered in the "Healthy Fitness Zone."

 

CAHSEE - California High School Exit Exam

The CAHSEE was a test that California high school students were required to pass before they receive a high school diploma. The test was designed to ensure that students who graduate from high school have the necessary skills in reading, writing, and math. 

SB 172, signed by the Governor on October 7, 2015, suspended administration of CAHSEE during the 2016-17, 2017-18, and 2018-19 school years.
