New State Assessments for New Standards

In 2015, the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) program replaced the 14-year-old Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) tests, so that Californians can measure students' mastery of the State’s new standards for college and career readiness.

Spring 2017 will be the second year that Campbell Union School District students take these tests, which include a mix of online and paper-pencil exams administered to students in grades 3 through 8.

New tests, new reports for parents & schools

Based on the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), California has a new accountability system that is based on multiple measures. There is a Student Report for parents, created in 2016, that shows results for the individual student, and in 2017 there will be a School Dashboard (report) for each school.

The parent report in 2016 that shows a child’s score on the new statewide assessments. These scores will not be used to determine whether a student moves on to the next grade. Rather, they will represent an opportunity to focus on what supports students will need to achieve college and career readiness.

In 2017, California will launch a new "School Dashboard", a new website that uses multiple measures to give a more complete picture of how schools are serving our diverse student population. These measures are based on factors that contribute to a quality education, including graduation rates, college/career readiness, student test scores, English learner (EL) progress, suspension rates, and parent engagement.

This new accountability system replaces the former Academic Performance Index (API), which was based solely on testing results, and the federal requirement to calculate Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).

A public preview of the Dashboard is expected to be available starting in mid-March, with full implementation slated for the 2017-18 school year.
