End of Year Assessment
Our school charter requires a student assessment at the end of the school year. To fulfill this requirement, all students must take a yearly summative assessment per the Student Agreement. Our school has an internal End of Year assessment for this purpose. However, this assessment is waived when a student takes the state mandated assessments through CAASPP as this state test provides the necessary progress data. Any students in grades 3-8, and 11 who do not take the CAASPP tests will take the mandatory internal End of Year Assessment. This test will be administered at the same time and location that the student is already scheduled to attend if he/she were taking the CAASPP test. The internal End of Year Assessment will be a computer-based, adaptive test and include ELA and Math for Grades 3-8 and 11.
