California statewide assessments will be given to all students in 3rd through 8th grades between April 22 and May 31. The specific dates of testing are determined at each school; please contact your school's office for details.


Students in grades 3 through 8 will take English Language Arts and Math assessments. In addition, students in grades 5 and 8 will also take a Science assessment.


To make sure your child feels comfortable taking the tests, you can do the following:

  • Explain to your child that these tests are used as tools to help them learn, and that they should not be anxious or scared.
  • Remind your child that you and their teacher want them to try their very best and are there to help, every step of the way.
  • Explore the practice tests with your child on the CAASPP Online Practice and Training Tests web page at so they can become familiar with the platform and setup of the tests.
Student score reports will be available in Powerschool at the beginning of the 2024-25 school year. For additional information about California's assessment program, please see any of these sites.

For questions about state-wide testing, please contact your school's principal, or Kevin Fairchild, Director of Assessment and Learning Support, at 619.258.2356 or [email protected].
