Score Reporting

Student Score Reports (SSRs) for 2021–22

SSRs that LEAs provide to parents/guardians are available electronically. Information about transitioning to electronic SSRs can be found on the Student Score Report Options web page. To view a sample SSR for each of the content areas, visit the CAASPP Sample Student Score Reports web page.

SSR types are described in the following table:

SSR Type Pages Per SSR Estimated Release
California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics* 4 June 2022
California Alternate Assessments (CAAs) for ELA and mathematics 4 June 2022
California Science Test (CAST)** 2 June 2022
CAA for Science 2 November 2022
California Spanish Assessment (CSA) 2 September 2022

* CAASPP Smarter Balanced English language ELA and mathematics results will be released into the California Educator Reporting System (CERS) independently, providing earlier results to LEAs. In prior years, results for individual students were not released to CERS until both the student's ELA and mathematics assessments were completed and scored. The CAASPP Smarter Balanced individual Student Score Reports will continue to be released after both the student's ELA and mathematics assessments are completed and scored, or at the end of the test administration window.

** The Student Score Data Files and the Test Results for California's Assessments website will display California Science Test (CAST) results for the graduating students in grade twelve, including students who took the high school CAST in grade ten or grade eleven.
