CAASPP link added to sidebar...

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress is the part of the California Department of Education responsible for the statewide tests administered to students, such as the CAST (California Science Test).

They ostensibly publish training and practice exams ahead of the operational administration in March. As we close out January and head toward February, the training and practice exam status is as follows:

The administration is, once again, scheduled for March. Fingers crossed that these items will post prior to that administration.
