2022–23 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Fee-based Services

Rescoring 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 ask to have the hand-scored responses on a student's test rescored by contacting the assigned LEA Success Agent Link to external site and making the request. The LEA must provide the following required data for the student—Statewide Student Identifier, school name and code, 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 computer-based assessments may be made for the hand-scored responses only.

Video Student Score Reports (SSRs)

Summative CAASPP video SSRs for ELA and mathematics 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, Mandarin, Khmer, or Tagalog. An additional cost of $0.25 will be added if the LEA elects to have ETS send the video via text to parents or guardians. The LEA will need to provide a list of the cell phone numbers in that scenario. For more information, please visit the Purchase Video SSRs from ETS web page.

Special Handling

Special handling charges may apply when an LEA requests a duplicate PDF file of all electronic SSRs or a copy of the Student Score Data File. A duplicate file will be either the SSR PDFs or the Student Score Data Report for a single administration. If an LEA is ordering files for multiple administrations, each administration would be a unit for costing purposes.

For files that can be accessed by the LEA Success Agent, there will be no cost to the LEA.

Duplicate files are ordered by contacting the assigned LEA Success Agent Link to external site.
