April is the time of year when all of the hard work and learning throughout the year appears to coalesce. Our students continue to work hard connecting concepts and diving deep into engaging content. They are able to apply their understanding of standards in meaningful ways to demonstrate their learning.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. CAASPP assessments include computer adaptive tests in English language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science. Students in third through sixth grade will take assessments in English language arts and mathematics. Fifth grade will also take the California Standards Test in science. Del Mar Union School District will be testing during a three-week window beginning May 2 through May 20.
