Assessment Spotlight, Issue 123California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) email update, January 29, 2021.

Training Opportunities Web Pages Now Even Easier to Use!
The CAASPP Training Opportunities web page and the ELPAC Training Opportunities web page on the CAASPP and ELPAC websites have been updated and reorganized! Now, instead of sorting through separate pages for each fiscal year’s training opportunities, users can refer to a single page that provides a listing of all upcoming training opportunities—even across fiscal years.
Each of these pages offers users filtering options, saving users time and streamlining their experience in planning for and accessing key trainings.
