CA State Assessments
CUSD - California State Assessments
The CAASPP System (California Assessment for Student Performance and Progress) is the state assessment system, which replaced STAR in 2014-15. The assessments are summative assessments, however all the data is used to inform instruction based on students' strengths and needs.
There are several components to this system of tests, however for core subjects, there are two main components to it (to date) including the Smarter Balanced Assessments and California Standards Test (CST) for science. There are also other state assessments, including the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) and the Physical Fitness Test. All test data is eventually posted in DataQuest.
