2023–24 CAASPP Test Administrator Tutorial

The content in the Test Administrator Tutorial will prepare test administrators to administer the following California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessments:

  • Smarter Balanced for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics
  • California Science Test (CAST)
  • California Spanish Assessment (CSA)

The Test Administrator Tutorial in the Moodle Training Site (Moodle) Link to external site delivers a streamlined user experience with Check for Understanding questions, provides test administrators with a certificate of completion, and allows local educational agency (LEA) CAASPP coordinators the ability to track completion. The Test Administrator Tutorial web page contains the same content as the Test Administrator Tutorial in Moodle Link to external site, without the Check for Understanding questions, for those LEAs choosing to train in groups.

Test administrators should watch only the videos relevant to the test they will be administering.

New Test Administrator

Test administrators new to administering the Smarter Balanced for ELA and mathematics, CAST, or CSA should complete the entirety of this optional course, starting with the Overview of the CAASPP section.

Experienced Test Administrator

Test administrators who have administered the Smarter Balanced for ELA and mathematics, CAST, or CSA in previous years should watch the videos within the During Administration of the CAASPP section.

To receive the test administrator's online Certificate of Completion in Moodle, participants must answer all Check for Understanding questions correctly. All other videos are recommended, but not required.
