Assessments & Testing
Each spring, students in Evergreen School District participate in statewide California assessments to provide information about their skills in English language arts and literacy, mathematics, science, and physical fitness. Students identified as English learners also participate in an annual assessment of English language proficiency. When combined with other measures such as grades, class work, and teacher observations, these tests give families and teachers a more complete picture of their child’s learning. You can use the results to identify where your child is doing well and where they might need more support.
Your child may be taking one or more of the California assessments listed below. Mandated by state and federal laws, all public schools are required to administer the following assessments in the relevant grade levels. Pursuant to California Education Code Section 60615, parents or guardians may annually submit to the school a written request to excuse their child from any or all of the CAASPP assessments. This exemption does not exist for the ELPAC or Physical Fitness Test.
