Reporting the CAA for Science Results Timeline

Provides the timeline for reporting the California Alternate Assessment (CAA) for Science preliminary indicator results.

The following table provides the timeline for receiving and reporting the 2020–21 CAA for Science results.

Audience Agency Responsible When How
Local educational agencies (LEAs) California Department of Education (CDE) Fall 2021

LEAs will receive preliminary indicators (i.e., percent correct and category level) in a downloadable student score extract file in the Test Operation Management System for those students who submitted all four CAA for Science performance tasks.

Parents and Guardians LEAs Fall 2021

If LEAs choose to report individual student preliminary indicators to parents and guardians, 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. These samples are located in the Frequently Asked Questions document. There will be no separate California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress electronic Student Score Reports provided.

Public CDE Fall 2021

Due to the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the low number of students who completed the four embedded performance tasks, the 2020–21 CAA for Science data will not be provided in the California Educator Reporting System or on the public reporting website. However, the CDE will publicly report aggregated and summary results in the form of research files in fall 2021.
