The following table is intended to assist LEA CAASPP coordinators, site coordinators, and test administrators in planning for the administration and local hand scoring of the Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICAs). It provides key information, including the total number of items appearing on each ICA. The total number of items includes both machine-scored and hand-scored items for each content area—English language arts (ELA) and mathematics (math).
