• California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

    Santa Rosa City Schools students each spring take the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) which is aligned to the California State Standards. Subject areas assessed are English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. These tests are taken on a computer for grades 3-8 and grade 11 in an April to May window. The science test is given to students in grades 5, 8, and 11. The testing system uses computer adaptive technology to provide valuable feedback for our classroom teachers and our district that we can use to help students succeed. Please take a moment to review some of the resources and practice tools below.

    Pursuant to California Education code, parents may, in writing, excuse their child from any or all parts of State mandated testing. This request is effective for the school year it is requested. Please talk with your site administrator for further details.
