The testing dates for these programs are dependent on the LEA's academic calendar. The date on which a school (including nonpublic, nonsectarian schools), program, or track completes 85 percent of its instructional days will determine when these tests will be administered. The CST, CMA, and CAPA for Science in grades 5, 8, and 10, the CST for grade 11 English-Language Arts and Mathematics, the CAPA for English-Language Arts and Mathematics in grades 2 through 11, and the STS for English-Language Arts and Mathematics in grades 2 through 11shall be administered within a testing window of 25 instructional days that includes 12 instructional days before and 12 instructional days after completion of 85 percent of the school’s, track’s, or program’s instructional days. The testing window varies by LEA. Most California districts and schools will test between February 2014 and July 2014.

Note: Please note that the test administration windows for the CMA, CAPA, and STS are the same as the CST administration window.
