Each spring, students in grades 3-8 and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). English language arts/literacy, mathematics, and science tests are included in CAASPP.

For CAASPP testing, students who have the most significant cognitive disabilities, as designated in their active individualized education program, are eligible to take the California Alternative Assessments (CAAs).

The testing window opens April 2 for NVUSD students. The actual testing period within that window varies at each school. 

This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on his or her grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in English language arts/literacy (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in mathematics (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • California is in the process of implementing the California Next Generation Science Standards. As part of that implementation, students in grades 5, 5, 8, and high school will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST.

These tests measure what your child knows and is able to do. Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support he or she needs to be successful in school.

For more information about tests, results, preparation, and the Alternative Assessments, visit the NVUSD Student Testing webpage.

For information on specific dates and times when your child will take the test in each subject, please contact your child's teacher or the school office.
