Testing Information

Understanding CAASPP





CAASPP Opt Out Option for Parents

California Ed Code section 60615 states parents or guardians have the right to exclude their child/children from any or all parts of CAASPP testing. Requests to excuse a child from testing must be submitted in writing, each year, to site administration, including students with active Individual Education Plans (IEPs). 

Physical Fitness Testing (PFT)

The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.

Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents.
