Parents' Guide for CAASPP

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress
The California Department of Education (CDE) has updated three Parent Guides to the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments.  The guides provide sample test items in English language arts/literacy and mathematics and explain how student achievement is reported to parents. In addition, they are grade-span specific, focusing on the concepts and skills to be mastered by students in:
  • Grades 3-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grade 11

All three Parent Guides are posted on the CDE CAASPP Parent Guides: Smarter Blanaced Assessments Web page at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/sbacparentguides.asp
