2018 CAASPP Results

The 2018 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System includes online and paper-based summative assessments. The summative assessments are comprehensive end of year assessments derived from the grade-level learning that measure progress toward college and career readiness. The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress categorize results in four areas – standards exceeded, standards met, standards nearly met and standards not met. The standards exceeded and standards met categories are combined to measure overall student proficiency in each subject area.

In English language arts, the percentage of all county students meeting the state standards was 44 percent – the highest score in four years of CAASPP results. That compares with the statewide standard percentage of 50 percent. In math, the number of county students meeting the statewide standard was 30 percent, also the best in four years of results. The statewide standard proficiency rate was 39 percent.

2018 CAASPP Results

This year marks the fourth release of the CAASPP data, which replaced the state’s Academic Performance Index for statewide accountability. The scores for CAASPP are now part of the state’s new accountability model – the California School Dashboard – which will have its first full year of released data later this fall.

CAASPP Results by Grade Level

English Language Arts and Mathematics

Elementary school students in Grades 3-5 in San Bernardino County showed the most improvement among students meeting proficiency standards in both English language arts (ELA) and math in results for the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Results from 2017-2018 school year, showed 3-5 percentage points improvements in three grade levels during the past year.

College Readiness

Early Assessment Program

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) Network facilitates vertical articulation between the California State University and California Community College, as well as the high schools’ professional development in the areas of language arts and mathematics. Counselors, assessment staff, directors of Curriculum/Instruction and university representatives are core participants in this effort to increase the number of students who successfully enter college without taking remediation classes. The EAP test is embedded in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) 11th-grade English Language Arts and Mathematics and to see how well prepared the 11th-graders are for college.
