Vallejo public schools were not the lowest scoring in the state, and the scores didn’t fall compared to last year. That’s the good news.
Results from the most recent statewide standardized tests are in, and Vallejo City Unified School District students remain in the bottom quarter of test takers, but have improved slightly over last time, Superintendent Adam Clark said.
The 2018 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System — comprehensive, year-end assessments of grade-level learning that measure progress toward college and career readiness — test in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. They are comprised of two parts: a computer-adaptive test, and a performance task. Students in grades three through eight, and grade 11 are tested, Clark said.
