District and State Assessments
California Assessment for Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)
The Smarter Balanced assessments are designed around the Common Core State Standards, which were adopted by California in 2010. These new tests are intended to measure real-world skills, such as problem solving and critical thinking, along with readiness for college and career. They are also computer based, replacing the multiple-choice, paper-based tests students have seen before.
