UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHILD'S SCORE REPORT
Students & Parents
The Parent Guides to Understanding are two-page flyers written in easy-to-understand language that
answer key questions (what, why, who, how, and when) about California's assessment programs.
Information is also included about how parents can support their student's success.
This page provides information for parents or guardians to help interpret the CAASPP student score report.
This Web site provides resources and information about the new Smarter Balanced assessments built to help students, parents, teachers, and school leaders know where students are on the path to success. Included on this Web site are updated resources to help understand your child's CAASPP scores.
This link accesses both the Practice and Training Tests portal. The Practice Tests provide students with grade-specific testing experiences that are similar in structure and format to the Summative Assessments. The Training Tests provide students with the opportunity to quickly become familiar with the software and interface features. The Training Tests are organized by grade-bands (e.g., 3–5).
The Starting Smarter websites help parents understand student scores and reports, view sample test questions, and provide additional free resources to support your child's learning.
