Grades 3-5 will take the CAASPP (Math and English Language Arts) and Grade 5 will also take the CAST (Science). Students will have multiple days to take these assessments.
For Roomers, or students who come to school for in-person instruction, state testing will be administered in-person at school. The Chromebooks at school will have the Secure Browser already installed for state testing.
For our Zoomers or students who are on Distance Learning, please click here for instructions on downloading and installing the Secure Browser.
The Secure Browser can work on a Mac, PC, or personal Chromebook. There is no need to check out an SMUSD Chromebook for testing purposes. We also do not have enough Chromebooks for all Zoomers. If you have any questions or technical difficulties with downloading and installing the Secure Browser, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to check out an SMUSD Chromebook, please click here.
If your student hasn't had a chance to practice taking the state tests, please click here for more info.
