The CDE has developed several resources to help parents and students understand the grade expectations of the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments:
- The Parent Guides to the Smarter Balanced Assessments (in English and Spanish) are posted on the CDE’s CAASPP Web page, under the Students and Parents Tab, at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/index.asp?tabsection=3#ssr. Separate guides have been developed for each of the three grade spans tested: grades 3–5, grades 6–8, and grade 11. Each guide explains the grade-level expectations for students in ELA and mathematics and provides sample test items.
- The practice and training tests, which can be found on the CDE’s Smarter Balanced Practice and Training Tests Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp, can help parents and students experience the type of test items that students will encounter on the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments. Answers to the practice test and scoring rubrics for the performance tests are posted on the Test Administrator (TA) Resources for the Smarter Balanced Practice and Training Tests Web page at http://www.caaspp.org/ta-resources/practice-training.html.
- Students wishing to inform the CSU and participating community colleges of their EAP status may submit their CAASPP results by selecting the release button at the end of each CAASPP exam (i.e., for both the ELA and mathematics assessments). For more information, please see the California Department of Education’s (CDE’s) Early Assessment Program Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/gs/hs/eapindex.asp.
If you would like more information about the CAASPP System, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE’s CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/index.asp?tabsection=3#ssr. If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact the school office at (323) 248-2500.
