2018 CAASPP Video Contest


The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System is changing the way students demonstrate their knowledge and is providing teachers more information than ever about their students to help them improve teaching and learning. The Assessment Development and Administration Division, at the California Department of Education (CDE), is pleased to announce the launch of the CAASPP Video Contest – For Kids, By Kids.

The video contest is part of a statewide effort to raise awareness about the importance of the statewide assessments. This contest will put the script and the camera in the hands of our talented and creative students to create a message for other students.

Open to all public schools in California, the video contest seeks creative ways to emphasize to students of all ages the importance of the CAASPP System in improving teaching and learning; how students can prepare for testing; and why it is important for all students to try their best to show what they know and can do.

Videos are due April 20, 2018. The top entries will be voted on statewide, with the winner being announced in late fall 2018.
