English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

  • CAASPP Starting Smarter for Families
    The California Department of Education (CDE), in collaboration with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and Educational Testing Service, launched a website to help empower parents/guardians and families to become partners in their children’s academic success:
    The family-focused website provides resources to facilitate parents’/guardians’ understanding of the scores presented on their child’s Student Score Reports. Using these websites, families can become involved in their child’s educational progress and:

    ·         Learn more about the performance areas in each subject and grade.

    ·         See sample test questions.

    ·         Prepare for parent-teacher conferences with a useful downloadable guide.

    ·         Access high-quality resources to support learning at home.
