The District maintains an annual testing program comprised of nationally normed, standardized tests, criterion-referenced tests, and district-developed assessments.
1.  Basic proficiency in reading/language arts and mathematics is assessed in grades K-12, using both standardized tests and district-developed assessments.
2.  Annually, students in grades 2-11 take the
STAR California Standards Tests, which assesses proficiency in reading/language arts and mathematics. Students in grades 5, 8 and 10 take a science test.  Students in grade 8 take a history/social science test. Students in grades 7-11 take end-of-year mathematics tests. 
3.  State law requires the development of a state test that school districts must give to students whose home language is not English.  The test is called the
English Language Proficiency Assessments for California  (ELPAC).  Its purpose is:
  • to identify new students who are English learners, in kindergarten through grade 12.
  • to monitor their progress in learning English
  • to help decide when they are proficient in English
4.  Physical Fitness is assessed in grades 5,7, and 9 each school year in accordance with State mandates.
