(CAASPP Testing, Spring 2021)

Each year students in grades 3 - 8 and 11 take the California State Assessments known as Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. For the 2020 - 2021 school year, the Federal and California State Boards of Education have granted flexibility to districts to determine if this is the best assessment to give students to gather data on how our students are progressing. The flexibility allows district to either give the SBAC assessments or give local assessments.

Based on this flexibility, CNUSD has determined that is best for us to administer local assessments to our students. All grade 11 students will take their local assessments in ELA and MATH via FastBridge.

After the students have completed the assessments, families will receive a student score report on their progress.

Test Location:
All testing will take place during the in-person school day. Testing may NOT be done at home. ELA will be administered by ELA teachers.  Math will be administered by Math teachers. For students who do not have a Math class, I will work with my wonderful testing ladies to administer to students in the Library.

What about the EAP:
In lieu of the CAASPP scores for both SBAC ELA and SBAC Math, the district is looking into alternative options to be able to offer in Fall 2021.
