Elementary School Progress Report Marking Practices and Procedures




The District has a four-level scoring scale for grades K-5/6 using the numbers 4, 3, 2, and 1 to indicate student achievement, with the score of four being the highest.

Aligned to the California content standards, these criteria describe the expected performance levels for students at each grade.

1. Achievement in the academic subjects is indicated as noted below. The following excerpts are from the K-5/6 progress report:

Academic Achievement Scores K-5/6

Indicates student progress towards achievement of grade-level California content standards.

4 = Exceeds grade level standards
3 = Meets grade level standards
2 = Progressing toward meeting grade level standards 1 = Minimal progress toward grade level standards N/A = Not assesses in current reporting period*

= Assessed during reporting period

*N/A may be used in reporting periods 1 and 2 only. A final numeric score must be given in all subjects for the final, reporting period 3.

2. Scores for TK-5/6 Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner indicate student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills in connection with the expectations of their grade level standards. The following excerpts are from the progress report:

Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner K-5/6

Indicates student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills aligned to the California content standards (CCS) expectations from CDE.
C = Consistently
S = Sometimes

R = Rarely


1. Scores for English Language Development (ELD) indicate the amount of progress an English learner has made toward achieving the state ELD standards Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways and Part II: How English Works.



Advanced Progress

Demonstrating ADVANCED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Average Progress

Demonstrating PARTIALLY PROFICIENT PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Partial Progress

Demonstrating AVERAGE PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Limited Progress

Demonstrating LIMITED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


With the LAUSD implementation of the 2012 California ELD standards there was a shift from five English language proficiency levels to three levels. The three English language proficiency levels are as follows:



Bridging: Students at this ELD proficiency level continue to learn and apply a range of high level English language skills in a wide variety of contexts, including comprehension and production of highly technical texts. Students are ready to transition to full engagement in grade level academic tasks and activities in a variety of content areas without the need for specialized ELD instruction.


Expanding: Students at this ELD proficiency level are challenged to increase their English skills in more contexts, learn a greater variety of vocabulary and linguistic structures, and apply their growing language skills in more sophisticated ways appropriate to their age and grade level.


Emerging: Students at this ELD proficiency level typically progress very quickly, learning to use English for immediate needs as well as beginning to understand and use academic vocabulary and other features of academic language.

Smarter Balanced Assessment SBA March 2018- June 2018

What is Smarter Balanced?

Smarter Balanced is.....

  •  A Better Assessment System

    Using the Digital Library, teachers can access resources to support student learning. Teachers can also use optional and flexible interim tests to check student progress throughout the year. Summative, or end-of-year tests, measure student achievement and growth in English and math in grades 3–8 and high school. Learn about our complete system.

  • A Customized Assessment

    Students take a customized test using a computer adaptive format: questions get harder when students answer correctly and easier when they answer incorrectly, allowing students to better demonstrate what they know. Read more about testing technology

  • Designed for All Students

    Additional supports make the assessments accessible to students with disabilities and English language learners. Explore accessibility and accomodations features.

  • Relevant to College and Career

    The online format with extended research, writing, and problem solving tasks measure the critical thinking and problem-solving skills students need for success. Learn what makes the assessment useful for life after high school.

  • Useful for Teachers

    Our system helps inform instruction and identify where students need more support. A Digital Library of tools—including professional development materials and instructional resources—is available to teachers to use all year to meet students’ individual needs. Go to the Educators page for more information.


    Try it out!

    Take a look at the test software and try some sample questions by grade.

CAST 2017-2018

The California Science Test (CAST)


The California Science Test or CAST is part of the state testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress or CAASPP. The CAST will be field tested in 2017‒18 and be operational in 2018‒19.

The CAASPP System is designed to give information to teachers, students, and their families about what students know and are able to do. It also indicates whether they are on track to be ready for success in college or career when they graduate from high school.


Who Takes CAST? All students in grades 5 and 8, and once in high school, depending on when they take their last science class.


How can I help my child get ready for the test?

You are an important part of your child’s education. Some things you can do to help your child are:

  • „  Discuss the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.

  • „  Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.  Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.

  • „  

  • Take a training test with your child.

  • Training tests can be found at http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.

Dual Language Education Can Close Achievement Gap



Dual language learning has been found to be the only method of second language acquisition to facilitate the full closure of the achievement gap between English learners and English speakers in primary and secondary education. Strictly structured and well-implemented dual language instruction across all subjects of the curriculum provides all students the opportunity to develop a deep academic proficiency in two languages, which will give them the tools to become highly-sought-after bilingual professionals in today's more globalized world.

CELDT 2017-2018 at Saticoy


Federal and state laws require that school districts must give a state test to students whose primary home language is not English. In California, this test is called the California English Language Development Test (CELDT).


The purpose of the CELDT is to


o Identify English learners in kindergarten through grade twelve o Measure their skill level in English
o Check their progress in learning English each year


All students in kindergarten through grade twelve, whose primary language is not English, must take the CELDT. These students must take the test within 30 calendar days after they start at a California public school for the first time. The CELDT also must be given once each year to English learners until they have learned the skills in English needed to complete their schoolwork.


Initial CELDT will be administered from August-September

About Saticoy

School Accountability Report Card


By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
