CAST: Separate California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) electronic SSRs provide an overall scale score and an achievement level for those students who submitted the 2019–2020 CAST.CAA for Science: If LEAs choose to report individual student preliminary indicators, they may do so in a manner most appropriate for their local needs. The Preliminary Indicator Toolkit is available, which contains an optional parent and guardian letter template as well as samples of dissemination methods located in the Frequently Asked Questions document.
