Eligible students are those whose disability prevents them from taking the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for ELA and mathematics and the California Science Test.
The CAA for Science is administered to all students in grades five and eight and once to each student in grade ten, eleven, or twelve while that student is in high school. Only eligible students may participate in the administration of the CAAs.
The CAA for Science is administered as three separate embedded performance tasks (PTs) that are integrated into each student’s instructional calendar. Embedded PTs are available for administration any time, in any order, between January 8, 2019, and the end of the instructional calendar.
