California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress: Common Questions About Smarter Balanced Assessments
Part of a Comprehensive Plan for Student Success
Knowing that public schools must change to prepare students for the challenges of the future, California has developed a comprehensive plan for high-quality teaching and learning in every school. We have a long way to go, but our work is well under way, with higher academic standards, more decision-making in the hands of schools and communities, and more resources dedicated to schools and to students with the greatest needs.
The system-wide changes we’ve begun are focused on helping students succeed in the long run, achieving their dreams of college and a career. We’re providing more training for teachers, more resources for teachers and students, and more access to technology in all classrooms.
Thanks to teachers, administrators and school staff, exciting changes are taking place inside our classrooms. Along with reading to follow a story, students are learning to read to cite evidence and draw logical conclusions. They are learning to use math to solve real-world problems rather than merely pick out the right multiple-choice answer.
California’s robust system of student assessments is one important component in understanding how our students are learning, what they know, and the supports they need to succeed.
