Electronic Student Score Reports Communications Toolkit
As part of its commitment to build a quality education system in the fast changing world of technology, California is moving its California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Student Score Reports to an electronic format that will be delivered online. The electronic Student Score Reports also will be enhanced, offering a more dynamic way of providing information about how students are progressing in their education.
