Why is this test important?

This test was created with teacher input to…

  • Measure how well your child has mastered the skills and content in mathematics and English language arts at his or her grade level
  • Align with the instruction that takes place in the classroom every day
  • Match the learning goals of each grade level
  • Assess critical thinking, analytical writing, and problem-solving skills, which are needed for success in college and a 21 st century career.

The test has different kinds of questions, including traditional multiple-choice questions as well as ones that require students to explain their answers, show their work, and compose essays.

We encourage parents to take a look at a practice test specific to the grade level of their child. The practice tests are posted on the California Department of Education’s Smarter Balanced Practice Tests Web page at

California Science Test (CAST)

The California Department of Education is developing a new science assessment based on the California Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The statewide California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System includes federally required science assessments in grades 5 and 8 and once in high school. This science assessment is the new California Science Test (CAST), which is based on the NGSS for California Public Schools. The CAST will be piloted in spring 2017. All students enrolled in grades 5, 8 and 12 will be administered the pilot test.
