Trabuco Hills High School

State Testing (CAASPP)

Trabuco Hills High School Juniors will be taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the California Science Test (CAST). Seniors will be taking the CAST on April 22nd. Eleventh grade students will have the option to take the test in person or remotely. All tests must be taken on a new district issued Chromebook. If you have not yet picked up your new Chromebook you will have the opportunity to do so on Monday, April 12th from 7:30 – 10am and 12:15 – 3:15pm in the Library. For test security, if students choose the remote option, their Chromebook camera will need to remain on for the entirety of the test. Room assignments will be posted on Monday, April 12th on the front office window and on the window by the student store as well as on the school website. This will include zoom links for virtual rooms. The tests will occur during Academic Support time between 1:00 and 2:15pm. All 9th, 10th and 12th graders, please note that academic support will be unavailable on all testing days.

It is important for all students to give their best effort on these tests for the following reasons:

  1. The Early Assessment Program (EAP) will assist the California State University (CSU) system and the California Community College (CCC) system in providing information on readiness for college-level written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning prior to starting senior year. The results are used to determine appropriate coursework placement once you have been admitted. Students will have the opportunity to select "release" to provide this information to these institutions in the last question on each test. The release of CAASPP information will not affect a student's application for admission.
  2. Saddleback Valley Unified School district will be posting CAASPP scores on student transcripts. 
  3. If your child is a candidate for the State Seal of Bi-literacy, Assembly Bill (AB) 1142 updates 
     Section 51461(a)(2) to state that students must pass the California Assessment of English Performance and Progress (CAASPP) or any successor test, administered in grade eleven, at or above the "standard met" achievement level.
  4. And probably the most important reason, Trabuco Hills High School has the highest CAASPP scores of all the high schools in Saddleback Valley Unified School District and we need our students to do their best to continue that trend.
