Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:

Access to Assessment Results Available for Local Use

Student scores for the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics are currently available in the Online Reporting System (ORS). Additionally, student scores for the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) are available in the Test Operations Management System (TOMS). Both data systems are secure and accessible to approved administrators and/or testing coordinators who are trained in protecting student privacy.

The early results will give local educational agencies timely information about student learning to support instructional planning for the coming year. Student achievement and proficiency results may also inform the development of Local Control and Accountability Plans and educational programs. Assessment results from the ORS and TOMS are not embargoed. Districts are encouraged to use their results for local planning, including public meetings with your local governing board.

This preliminary data will not include information for the California Alternate Assessments (CAA) for ELA and Mathematics, the CAA for Science, the California Science Test, or the California Spanish Assessment.

Final data for the CAASPP and ELPAC will be released publicly by the California Department of Education (CDE) later this year, and will be available on the CDE public reporting site. If you have any questions please contact the Assessment Division at caaspp@cde.ca.gov for CAASPP, or elpac@cde.ca.gov for ELPAC.

We thank you for your continued support of the CAASPP and ELPAC Systems.

Sincerely,

\s\

Performance, Planning, and Technology Branch
