Reading Your Child's CAASPP Score Report

  • Each spring, Solana Beach students in Grades 3 through 6 participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics give educators across the state a way to see how well students can write clearly, think critically, and solve problems, which are some of the skills needed to succeed in college and a 21st century career.
    Beginning in June, 2019, Student Score Reports can now be accessed electronically via the SBSD Parent Portal. For more information on accessing your child's CAASPP Assessment score report, click here:
    This report includes an overall score for each subject, and information about how well your child did in different skill areas. If your child took the assessment in past years, you will also see past scores showing their progress over time.
    If your child was in Grade 5, he or she was also given the California Science Test (CAST) or CAA for Science field test, both based on California’s Next Generation Science Standards. More information on CAST results will be provided in late fall.
    For More Information:
    You can find out more about your child’s CAASPP results by visiting the parent web page called Starting Smarter, available at
    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.
    The Solana Beach School District views these assessments as an academic checkup. Like class assignments, unit exams, and progress reports, they are but one gauge of your child's progress towards the high academic goals set for our students. Our district is continually refining practices to support student learning and success. We know our students will continue to progress toward meeting the challenging goals set. As a reminder, these assessment results are only a snapshot of a student’s performance. Results are used in conjunction with additional information gathered as part of student’s classroom performance. We look forward to supporting your child and partnering with you in their pathways of learning.
