Testing and Assesments

In October 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 484, which immediately suspends most of the previous STAR tests and funds a trial run this year of the new Smarter Balanced Assessments.


In spring 2014 students will be assessed with the following:

Students in grades 5, 8 and 10 will take the STAR California Standards test for science.

Students in grades 3-8 will take a sampling of the Smarter Balanced Field Test for ELA and math.

Students in grades 9-11 may take a sampling of the Smarter Balanced Field Test if our district is selected to participate in the scientific sample.

Students in grades 2-11 with significant cognitive disabilities will take the  California Alternative Performance Assessment.

Students in grade 11 will take the EAP (Early Assessment Program).
