California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

Since 2016, Kentfield students in third through eighth grade have participated in the annual administration of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) for English Language Arts and Mathematics.

The assessment measures student skill mastery and depth of understanding, writing, research, and problem-solving skills more thoroughly than past assessment tests.

Since the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve (CA NGSS) in 2013, the California Department of Education has been developing a new science assessment—the California Science Test (CAST)—aligned with these standards. In 2018-2019, science assessments will be given to students in fifth and eighth grades, however because this is the first administration of CAST, science results will not be official.
