Testing Calendar​

District Assessments

Cognitive Abilities Test  (CogAT) is used to initially identify grade 2 students who are eligible for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program. This test consists of three batteries, which measure verbal, quantitative and nonverbal abilities.

Illuminate Education is a system for creating, scoring and reporting of formative, interim, and summative assessments and progress monitoring of student achievement.

State Assessments

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

CAASPP is California’s statewide student assessment system. On January 1, 2014, California Education Code Section 60640 established the CAASPP System of assessments.

Pursuant to California Education Code 60615, parents/guardians may submit to the school a written request to excuse their child from any or all parts of CAASPP.

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) uses the grade 11 Smarter Balanced summative assessments in ELA and math to identify students who are ready for college-level credit-bearing English and math courses. Grade 11 students may choose to release their test results to the California State University (CSU) and participating California Community Colleges (CCC) at the end of the online tests.

California English Language Development Test (CELDT)

CELDT measures English proficiency of students in grades K-12 whose primary language is not English. The purpose of the CELDT is to assess and monitor student English language development skills toward a level of English proficiency. The results of the test are used for Title III federal accountability purposes and as one of the reclassification criteria of “English Learner” to “Reclassified Fluent English Proficient.”


Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

PFT assesses the physical fitness of students in grades 5, 7 and 9 in the following areas: aerobic capacity, body composition, upper body strength, abdominal strength, trunk strength, and flexibility. Students are scored as “within the Healthy Fitness Zone,” or “Needs Improvement - Some Risk,” or "Needs Improvement - Health Risk." To pass the PFT, students must have 5 of 6 fitness standards “within” the Healthy Fitness Zone. For 9th graders, who do not meet 5 of the 6 fitness areas, they must enroll in a Physical Education (PE) class in 10th grade. They will not be eligible for Independent Study PE.



The U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences selects schools at random to participate and gather student performance data for national and international comparisons.

Our students may be selected to participate in any of the following tests:
