About CAA

  • The California Alternate Assessments (CAA) in English–language arts (ELA) and mathematics are administered to students in grades 3–8 and 11 whose individualized education program (IEP) teams have determined that the student’s cognitive disabilities prevent him or her from taking the online CAASPP Smarter Balanced assessments. The CAA are delivered one on one by a qualified CAA Test Examiner familiar to the student.
