On September 9, 2015, the California Department of Education released the 2015 CAASPP Results for districts across the State.  The public can access these results at http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov.

The CAASPP — the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress — are new, computer-based assessments in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.  Starting last school year, the CAASPP replaced the paper-based Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program.  Last Spring, Pleasant Grove School students in grades 3-8 participated in the new CAASPP.

The new assessments are "adaptive" in that they take into account the student's correct or incorrect answers to generate succeeding questions.  These assessments move beyond multiple choice, and include performance tasks that require complex written responses.  For these reasons, the CAASPP are designed to provide a more complete understanding of student knowledge and critical thinking skills for college and career readiness.

Pleasant Grove School students performed well, especially considering that all students engaged in computer-adaptive testing for the first time.   We are proud of our academic excellence, as well as the extraordinary teaching and support found throughout the district.

The following chart provides overall CAASPP results for Pleasant Grove JUSD as well as Sutter County and the state.  The values indicate the percentage of test-takers (grades 3-8) who either "met" or "exceeded" the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.

Physical Fitness Testing is done annually in the spring. Our students work hard all year which is evident in our testing results.
