Federally Mandated Testing
National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) – Grades 4, 8, 12
State Mandated Testing
The CAASPP System is intended to provide parents and educators more accurate and actionable information about what students are learning. Because the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC), which are administered as part of the CAASPP System, are computer adaptive, these assessments will also provide better information about the needs and successes of individual students.
EGUSD parents of students who took a CAASPP assessment can expect their student’s score report by the end of August, along with a letter from our superintendent.
Students receive an overall score for each subject, ranging from 2000 to 3000. Overall scores are reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded.
Understanding Your Child’s Score Report
Preparing for the release of student score reports, the California Department of Education (CDE) has created a new video titled, “Understanding Your Child’s Score Report.” The below video explains the new CAASPP – 2016 Smarter Balanced Consortium Student Score Report
