STATE TESTING RESULTS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Submitted by Peggy Lew on Jun 17 (last updated Jun 17)

You can now access your child’s 2019 CA Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) results through LAUSD’s Parent Portal.

Starting with spring 2019 CA Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) results, the CDE will no longer print paper reports for parents after this year.  In Los Angeles Unified, parents will be able to access their student’s electronic CAASPP Student Score Report in the Parent Portal https://parentportal.lausd.net

The Parent Portal is a one-stop online system that connects parents and guardians to their student’s testing and other essential data in LAUSD.  Parents can monitor student’s attendance, grades, assignments, update emergency telephone numbers, track student progress toward graduation, and much more.  

If you do not have a Parent Portal account, we encourage you to create one now.  Some information is not available for Open students, such as grades and assignments.

Parents will be able to securely access your child’s current and previous test reports using a mobile device or a computer.  The report will contain crucial information about the test and it will include links and resources to help parents better understand the report and help their students.
