California Testing in 2016- 2017

State testing starts April 17 and runs through May 19 for all 3rd through 5th grade students.  It is important that each student does his or her best on each test.  Please assist your children by having them get a good night’s rest, have a proper breakfast, and arrive to school on time.

Attendance is very important during testing time.  Please assist us by sending your students to school every day.  It is also important to schedule medical or other appointments after the testing period.  Students are much more comfortable taking the tests with their classmates as opposed to taking them in a make-up room with students from other classes.

Most importantly, we want students to do their best because that will give us the clearest picture of what we need to do to improve our teaching and provide stronger lessons for your children. Thank you for all your efforts.

Smarter Balanced

In California, most students in grades three through eight and grade eleven will participate in the 2015–16 Smarter Balanced tests, which include both ELA and mathematics content areas. These tests are administered online. A student may be exempted from taking the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in three situations: 

  1. If the student is taking the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs);
  2. If the student has been designated as an English learner and enrolled in school in the United States for less the 12 months may be exempted from the ELA portion of the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment; or
  3. If the parent has expressed in writing that his or her student should be excluded from taking the summative assessments.
