CAASPP Score Reports
At the end of last school year, students in grades three through eight participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Your child’s individual student score report shows scores for English language arts and mathematics. It includes an overall score for each subject and information about your child’s proficiency in meeting standards in different areas. Students in grades four through eight who took the test in previous years will also see past scores so you can see your child’s progress over time.
The California Department of Education (CDE) has transitioned to a paperless delivery of CAASPP student score reports. The Ross Valley School District has created parent portal accounts through Aeries, our student information system, so that you can access your child’s score reports.
[If you did not receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions for how to access your Aeries parent portal account, please check your spam folder. If you are unable to find it, please contact Sean Maher, Director of Technology at email@example.com.]
To access your child’s individual student score report:
- Log onto your Aeries parent portal account
- Click “Test Scores” on the menu bar
- Click “State Test Score Reports”
Paper copies of 8th-grade score repots (current 9th-grade students) were mailed home.
To learn more about your child’s scores, go to the new parent web page called Starting Smarter, available at https://ca.startingsmarter.org/.
This site includes:
- resources to help understand results on the student score reports
- access to sample test questions and practice tests
- no-cost resources to support learning
- a guide for parent-teacher conferences
Results for the California Science Test (CAST) are not expected to be released until 2020.
In our district, the test results are just one way to look at how our students are doing. Schools use the results to identify specific areas in which to set goals and focus more attention in the next school year, while teachers can use the results to identify and address individual student needs.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact your school administrator or Julia Wolcott, RVSD Director of Curriculum & Instruction.
