Assessment, Research and Evaluation
The department of assessment, research & evaluation is responsible for assessing student achievement, progress, and outcomes; conducting research on issues of interest to school and district staff; and evaluating program effectiveness. We promote using data to inform decision-making that support our district's Strategic Directions. Our mission is to strive for continuous improvement and excellence for all students and programs.
 

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is California’s statewide student assessment system. Results of these assessments inform parents and educators on their students' continual progress for each grade level and college and career readiness. 
 
Pursuant to California Education Code 60615, parents/guardians may submit to the school a written request to excuse their child from any or all parts of CAASPP.  Students who opt out of the grade 11 CAASPP do not qualify for the State Seal of Biliteracy (SSB) (EC 51461(a)2).  
 
The Early Assessment Program (EAP) uses the grade 11 Smarter Balanced summative assessments in English Language Arts and math to identify students who are ready for college-level credit-bearing English and math courses. To ensure alignment with Board Policy/Administrative Regulation 6162.51, CAASPP scores will no longer be on student transcripts. As always, students will be able to opt in to voluntarily send their CAASPP scores by checking a box during the actual administration of the test, as noted below. Grade 11 students may choose to release their test results to the California State University (CSU) and participating California Community Colleges (CCC) at the end of the online tests.

This data helps guide our work with students alongside other assessments, such as our FASTBridge screener. SRVUSD administers this screener to all students in grades K-12 three times per year (fall, winter, and spring). This is in addition to classroom-specific assessments that all teachers administer. FASTBridge offers data throughout the school year in order to provide the appropriate just-in-time supports our students need in order to thrive academically.
 
We will get back to the scores we all know and expect in SRVUSD. The district has many resources to support student learning, including:
  • All schools have student support time built into their schedules so that all students can access support.
  • MTSS Liaisons partner with classroom teachers to deliver instruction & intervention.
  • Equity Liaisons who ensure all underserved populations make academic gains. 
  • Collaboration time is built into all teacher schedules so they have time to analyze assessment data, including CAASPP data, in order to determine what supports are most appropriate for individual students and/or groups of students.
 
Preliminary observations of the data include the following:
 
  • SRVUSD students continue to achieve at high levels overall; especially when compared to aggregate county data.
  • Overall 2022 SRVUSD CAASPP scores fell 2 percentage points in English Language Arts and 5.5 percentage points in math
  • CAASPP is an important summative measure used in a number of ways to determine individual student performance as well as the overall educational effectiveness of our programs and curricula.
 
The state has not yet published the CA Dashboard. However, we have been told this dashboard will be publicly available sometime in November or December, 2022, and once we know it has launched, we will share that information with you.
 

English Learner Assessments

English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) - State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency (ELP) to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The California Department of Education has transitioned from the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) to the ELPAC as the state ELP assessment in 2017-18. There are two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English Learners, and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a student’s progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP. Parents and students may review the ELPAC Practice Tests.
 

Physical Fitness Test 

Physical Fitness Test (PFT) - PFT assesses the physical fitness of students in grades 5, 7 and 9 in the following areas: aerobic capacity, body composition, upper body strength, abdominal strength, trunk strength, and flexibility. Students are scored as “within the Healthy Fitness Zone,” or “Needs Improvement - Some Risk,” or "Needs Improvement - Health Risk." To pass the PFT, students must have 5 of 6 fitness standards “within” the Healthy Fitness Zone. For 9th graders, who do not meet 5 of the 6 fitness areas, they must enroll in a Physical Education (PE) class in 10th grade. They will not be eligible for Independent Study PE.
 

District Assessments

Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) - CogAT is used to initially identify students who are eligible for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program. This test consists of three batteries, which measure verbal, quantitative and nonverbal abilities. For more information on GATE Testing Click Here
 

National and International Assessments

The U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences selects schools at random to participate and gather student performance data for national and international comparisons.Our students may be selected to participate in any of the following tests:
