For more information, including sample tests, go to the CA Dept. of Education's page regarding the Practice Tests.  We suggest taking a look at the specific grade level Practice Tests.  Teachers will be using some of the same practice tests in class, but we encourage additional support.  Simply use the "Guest" default when signing in.

As the parent or guardian, you have the option of excusing your child from any part of the CAASPP [please specify which subject(s)].  If you would like to excuse your child from any of the tests, you must submit your request in writing to the school (Ed.Code 60615).  Please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make alternative arrangements for your child.
