Common Core Assessment Schedule

As the California Department of Education States, “The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is designed to give information to teachers, students, and their families about what students know and are able to do and whether they are on track to be ready for success in college or a career when they graduate from high school.”

At Ross Valley Charter we find value in promoting academic growth and progress. Beyond measuring academic growth through appropriate teacher administered in-class formative and summative assessments, we utilize CAASPP interim and summative assessments. The data we receive not only helps us to understand what our students know, but also allows us as a school to know where we are doing well, and where we need to grow.

These assessments are provided to students in grades 3 through 5.
