CAST Testing

CAASPP for 10th Graders



Tuesday, March 28th at 8:00 am & 12:31 pm.

March 2017


Dear Parents & Guardians:


In September 2013, the State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for California Public Schools, K – 12, as required by California Education Code. In November 2016, the SBE approved a draft Science Framework.

As a result, the California Department of Education is developing new science assessments based on the new science standards. The new assessments are called California Science Test or CAST and the California Alternate Performance Assessment or CAA for Science. Both tests are computer-based and part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

This year CAST and CAA for Science will be piloted at many schools throughout the state. Elk Grove High School will be piloting the tests for our 10th graders. Both tests are in the initial phase of development and scheduled to become part of our state’s annual testing program in the spring of 2019.

  • On Tuesday, March 28th, all students in 10th grade will take either the CAST or CAA for Science. The administration of the test should take about one hour. Most students will be testing with a science teacher or administrator in a designated testing area or computer lab – see the schedule on the back of this letter.

It’s important for our students do their best when taking these tests. Test results will provide valuable information to the State Board of Education regarding how students respond to the test questions and what adjustments should be made before the spring of 2019.


Parents and Guardians play an important role in preparing students to take these assessments. Please encourage your students to get a good night’s sleep the night before and eat a healthy breakfast on testing days. 


Catherine Guy, Principal
