California’s annual review of how students are doing will be released on Thursday. Known as the STAR Program, for Standardized Testing and Reporting, it’s an alphabet soup of separate assessments, covering various subjects and administered to 4.7 million students in grades two through eleven. These are the four components:

  • The California Standards Tests (CSTs): Measuring students’ achievement of California’s content standards in the subjects of English language arts, mathematics, science, and history–social science.
  • The California Modified Assessment (CMA): An alternate assessment measuring students’ achievement of California’s content standards on the basis of modified achievement standards in English language arts, mathematics, and science for eligible pupils with disabilities.
  • The California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA): An alternate assessment measuring students’ achievement of California’s content standards in English language arts, mathematics, and science.
  • The Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS): Measuring students’ achievement of California’s content standards for English language arts that address reading/language arts and California’s content standards for mathematics.
