CAASPP: Deadline Approaching to Complete Interim Assessment Hand Scoring
CAASPP email update, June 16, 2021.
Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinator:
In preparation for the 2021–22 school year, the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments and related systems will experience downtime from Friday, August 13, 2021, at 5 p.m. to Tuesday, August 17, 2021, at 8 a.m. During this downtime, student responses will be cleared from the Interim Assessment Hand Scoring System (IAHSS) and will no longer be available for hand scoring.
To ensure that student results from all completed 2020–21 interim assessments appear in the California Educator Reporting System (CERS), all outstanding hand scoring must be completed in the IAHSS prior to the system downtime on August 13, 2021. Please note that, for Interim Comprehensive Assessments, hand scoring for both parts of the test—the computer-based test and the performance task—must be completed and submitted to generate results in CERS.
Questions regarding this downtime or Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments should be directed to CalTAC, by phone at 800-955-2954 or by email at email@example.com.
