ASSESSMENTS

PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test)

  • Although this test is designed for 11th grade students and was created to utilize as a tool to better assess the academic preparedness of students planning on attending a 4-year university right out of high school, the purpose of the PSAT is to identify areas of strength and weakness as students prepare to take the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test)

SBAC (Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium)

  • The SBAC testing has now replaced the CAHSEE (The California High School Exit Exam) as well as the CST (California State Testing). This test is administered in the 11th grade. Using computer adaptive technology, our tests are customized to every student. When a student answers correctly, the next question will be harder, and a wrong answer will lead to an easier question. Our system helps inform teachers’ instruction by identifying where students need more support. Teachers also have access to a digital library of resources to help improve their instruction and meet students’ individual needs.
