Principal's Letter

Hello Families-
As we enter April we are beginning a new phase of California state testing for our 3-6 grade students.  We are conducting a “test of the test” this year to give the state critical information about the new assessment before it goes live next year.  Testing at Antelope Creek will take place in the computer lab from April 22-May 8.  The new test is referred to as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP.This new assessment replaces the old STAR assessment which is not aligned to the new standards and it brings some new wrinkles to the content of the questions and the format of the test.  One of the biggest changes is that this assessment will be done on computer and not with paper/pencil.  As we all know, students today are seemingly born with the innate ability to navigate on an electronic device.  This change alone will require students to call upon those instinctive skills and will probably lead to an increased level of engagement.  The content of the test will also move away from multiple choice, discrete skill based questions to more open-ended questions that will call upon them to think critically and apply skills across the curriculum.  It is important to remember that you will not receive results from this round of testing.  This will give us all a chance to try out the new system and give critical feedback before facing any accountability from the state.  We are looking forward to participating in this important field study and look forward to moving in this new direction.  You will be receiving more information about the testing before Spring Break.   You can also visit the California Department of Education web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/smarterfieldtest.asp for more information. Please let me know if you have any questions and have a wonderful April.

Sincerely,
Brian Arcuri, Principal
