CAASPP Testing

CAASPP is an annual academic testing system that provides information on student progress to ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and/or career.  CAASPP assessments include English–language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for students in grades 3-5 and the California Science Test (CAST) for students in grade 5.

All CAASPP tests measure what students know and are able to do. The tests include many different types of questions that allow students to interact with the test questions. Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so students can get the support needed to be successful in school.  To learn more, you and your child can visit the California Department of Education (CDE) Website at this web address

The CDE will no longer print CAASPP Student Score Reports (SSR).  Hence, parents will no longer receive their student’s SSR by mail. In Los Angeles Unified, parents will be able to access their student’s electronic CAASPP SSR in the Parent Portal.  The Parent Portal is a one-stop online system that connects parents and guardians to their student’s testing and other essential data.  If you do not have a Parent Portal account, we encourage you to create one soon.
