CDE Postpones Release of CAASPP Statewide Test Results

September 5, 2017

The California Department of Education (CDE) abruptly announced on August 25 that the release of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test results for 2017 – originally scheduled for August 29 – would be postponed, so the CDE could “address a recently identified data issue.”

The problem, according to some news reports, involves special education students whose test scores were identified with a different district than the district in which they had taken the test. The glitch was spotted when the CDE sent the test results to districts (as a “preview period” to prepare for the public release of the test results), and districts started calling the CDE with questions and concerns.

A rescheduled release date – not yet identified, but probably during the first two weeks of September – is expected to be announced soon.
