2019–20 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Fee-based Services

Rescoring of Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments and the California Science Test (CAST)

The online Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments (administered in two content areas—English language arts/literacy [ELA] and mathematics) and the CAST include machine‐scored and hand‐scored test questions. A local educational agency (LEA) may request to have the hand-scored responses on a student’s test rescored by calling the California Technical Assistance Center at 800-955-2954 and making the request. The LEA will be required to provide the required data for the student—Statewide Student Identifier (SSID), school, and LEA information—and content area(s) to be rescored. A purchase order must be provided at the time of the request.

Note that a request for rescoring online assessments may be made for the hand-scored responses only.

Video Student Score Reports (SSRs)

This service will not be available for the 2019–2020 administration year.

Video SSRs can be purchased from ETS and distributed to parents/guardians using a distribution method determined locally. SSRs will cost $1.00 per set of video SSRs. A set is one video SSR in English and one in the student’s primary language if that language is Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese (Traditional), or Filipino. An additional cost of $0.25 will be added if the LEA elects to have ETS text out the videos. The LEA will need to provide the cell phone numbers in that scenario.
