State Test Scores

Students in grades three through eight participate annually in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

Your child took or will take the following test(s), depending on grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in grades 3 through 8
  • California Science Test (CAST) in grades 5 and 8

The California Department of Education (CDE) has transitioned to paperless delivery of CAASPP individual student score reports. During the summer months, your child's Student Score Report for ELA and math are released by the testing vendor on a rolling basis as they are scored. Once all of the Kentfield score reports are complete, they are accessible electronically through the Aeries Parent Portal. Results for CAST will be released in the late fall.

To access your student's results, visit the Aeries Parent Portal - even if your student has moved on from Kentfield, student accounts are available in your parent portal for a limited time.

Login and click on the Test Scores menu, then click on State Test Scores Reports.

On that page, for students in grades 4 through 8 who took the test in previous years, you will also see past score reports. If a language other than English was selected as the primary correspondence language for your student, the report will also be available in that language for 2019 and later if supported by CAASPP.

To learn more about your child’s scores, go to the CDE’s new parent web page called Starting Smarter, available at This site includes:

  • resources to help understand results on the student score reports
  • access to sample test questions and practice tests
  • no-cost resources to support learning
  • a guide for parent-teacher conferences

In Kentfield School District, state test results are just one of multiple measures we use to look at how well our students are doing academically. Schools can use the results to identify specific areas in which to set goals and focus more attention in the next school year, while teachers can use the results to identify and address individual student needs. It is also important to know that the test results are not used to determine whether a student moves to the next grade. If you have questions, we recommend that you discuss the results with your child’s teacher.
