Educational Programs School Assessments Office

"Measuring progress toward meaningful learning goals and objectives."


The LACOE Assessments Office coordinates the administration and processing of all district, state, and federally-mandated assessments and provides training and support for test coordinators and principals. In addition, we enforce secure testing procedures and appropriate test administration and preparation at all LACOE school sites.

LACOE Schools utilizes a variety of assessments to gather data on student achievement levels in order to monitor student progress over time and to make instructional decisions in the best interest of each student. The assessments currently in use include:

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP); English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC); and FITNESSGRAM Physical Fitness Test (CA PFT); High School Equivalency Test (HiSET); California High School Proficiency Examination.
