Junior Class CAASPP Testing

Dear Parents/Guardians of Monte Vista’s Junior Class:

 

All 11th grade students at Monte Vista will take the annual California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. These assessments indicate a student’s college readiness in ELA and Mathematics as they enter their senior year. Since these assessments provide feedback on individual, school, and district-wide academic progress it is important that each of our juniors participate and do their best when taking the exams. In addition, colleges and universities use the results to assess the academic competitiveness of our school. We want to make it clear to admissions officers that Monte Vista students come from the strongest college prep environment and are well prepared for college level work.

 

Monte Vista must have a minimum 95% of 11th graders complete the CAASPP test to meet state and federal requirements.   California State University’s Early Assessment Program (EAP) then uses CAASPP results in ELA and mathematics to identify students who are ready for college-level, credit-bearing English and Math courses when they enter college. CAASPP scores are now printed on student transcripts to share the scores with colleges and universities.

  • Students at the “Ready” (Standard Exceeded) level may enroll directly in college-level courses upon enrollment at a CSU or participating California Community College without taking a placement exam.
  • Students at the “Conditionally Ready” (Standard Met) level must take appropriate courses and pass with a grade of “C” or better in both semesters in their senior year in order to move directly to college-level courses.
  • Students at the “Not Yet Ready” (Standard Nearly Met) or “Not Ready” (Standard Not Met) must take the required placement tests at the college or university they wish to attend.

 

Monte Vista High School has the following performance goals for the 2017 CAASPP:

  • 95% or higher participation rate of the Junior Class. 
  • 90% of 11th graders scoring “College Ready” or “Conditionally Ready” in ELA.
  • 90% of 11th graders scoring “College Ready” or “Conditionally Ready” in Math.

Monte Vista will be administering the ELA portion of the CAASPP from March 27th through March 31st.  All students will be following a block schedule to ensure that all of our students have ample time to complete this phase of the exam.

CAASPP Math testing is scheduled after Spring Break. Monte Vista’s juniors will take the math exam in US History classes between April 10th and April 21st. This phase of our testing will be completed without changes to our daily bell schedule.   

 

I am confident that Monte Vista’s Juniors are well prepared to excel on the CAASPP. If you have any questions about the CAASPP, please contact the administrator overseeing the Monte Vista CAASPP testing, Assistant Principal Megan Keefer mkeefer@srvusd.net.

 

 

Thank you for supporting our students, staff, and community.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Dr. Kevin Ahern

Principal, Monte Vista High School
