CAASPP testing

Attention Sierra Madre Parents & Students,

CAASPP testing will be conducted at SMMS from April 18th to May 7th.  Your child will be taking online tests that include a Performance Task (PT) and Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Our 8th Graders will also be taking the California Science Test (CAST). The schedule for testing is attached.

In order to promote and support your child’s success on these important assessments, please make certain to do the following:

Ensure that your child arrives at school on time.  All testing will begin as close to 7:55a.m. as possible.  Students who arrive after testing has begun will not be permitted to enter the testing session and must then take the test during one of the make-up sessions.  

Avoid scheduling dental or doctor appointments during these testing days.  If your child is ill or there is an emergency, an absence is of course understood.  However, students will not be interrupted during testing sessions for outside appointments or visitations.

Encourage your child to get a good night’s sleep, to eat a healthy breakfast, and to give their best effort during testing.

Thank you as always for your support!
