California Educator Reporting System Resources
The California Educator Reporting System (CERS) allows teachers and administrators to access their students' individual and aggregate test results from state summative and interim assessments. To access CERS, educators must use their assigned Test Operations Management System (TOMS) credentials.
The CERS Sandbox is a training tool intended to help local educational agency (LEA) staff learn about the features and functions of CERS in a non-secure environment. It offers users virtually the same functions as the reporting system but uses practice test items and fictitious student data.

CERS includes student test results data from the following assessments:

- Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for ELA and mathematics
- California Alternate Assessments (CAAs) for ELA and mathematics
- California Science Test (CAST)
- CAA for Science (expected fall 2022)
- California Spanish Assessment (CSA)
- Summative ELPAC
- Alternate ELPAC (expected summer 2022)
LEAs can contact their student information system (SIS) vendors to set up student group transfers directly from the SIS to the CERS using an application program interface. Visit the California Educator Reporting System–Student Information System Integration page for more information.
