The assessments that comprise the 2016 CAASPP administration are a mix of online and paper-pencil assessments. The online component contains the Smarter Balanced English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics tests. The paper-pencil component includes CST/CMA/CAPA science tests and the optional STS for RLA.
Attached you will find two communication pieces that the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE) commissioned to inform the Placer County businesses, community and parents on the recent CAASPP testing.
The Business piece is has been drafted in a collaborative manner to inform business and community leaders on the recent changes of standards and assessment used by CA public schools. This piece can be viewed here.
