CAASPP State Test Scores

As a publicly funded independent charter school, IVA students, as any other public school students, take the state-sponsored academic achievement test known as the Smarter Balanced assessment presented through the California Assessment of Academic Progress or CAASPP site. While we believe these tests measure something important, they do not begin to capture everything that is involved with growth in intellectual virtues like curiosity, open-mindedness, intellectual courage, and intellectual tenacity. Therefore, we believe they are only partly reflective of the quality of education offered at IVA. For further indicators of this quality, see here.

In its yearly LCAP IVA creates goals for the next year based on previous year data, which includes CAASPP data and feedback on school goals. See more information about IVA's LCAP and a slideshow for more information about test scores by student demographic group, as well as IVA's other goals. 
For an overview of IVA's Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP) and the School Accountability Report Card (SARC), please see the governance page

 

 The results from the last three years' assessments (the only years for which we have data) are as follows:

*Note - Results from previous year test scores are accessible to schools at the beginning of the next school year.

IVA has results from the CAST Science test given to our 8th grade students. IVA only has 8th-grade students, so its averages do not include 5th- or 11th-grade student results based on the CAST test. New Generation Science Standards version of the test began as a pilot in the 2016-2017 school year.
