Based on current guidance from the California Department of Education (CDE), the following assessments will be put on hold for the 2020-21 school year for elementary and middle school students.
CAASPP English Language Arts Assessment
CAASPP Math Assessment
California Science Test (CAST)
California Alternative Assessment (CAA)
As required by CDE, Glendale Unified School District will utilize the following local assessments to measure student academic progress for the 2020-21 school year. End-of-year assessments will be administered between April 19 and May 28:
Grades 3-5: i-Ready end-of-year assessment
Grades 6-8: NWEA MAP end-of-year assessment
High school students in 11th grade will take the 2021 CAASPP exam as scheduled, as participation in the Early Assessment Program (EAP) is based on CAASPP results. The EAP is a tool California State Universities and community colleges use to measure college readiness.
The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) will continue as required for all English Learners.
IEPs that include State testing data will be updated using the alternative assessments.
We will continue to keep our community informed as additional information becomes available.
