"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.

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP); California English Language Development Test (CELDT); and FITNESSGRAM Physical Fitness Test (CA PFT); High School Equivalency Test (HSET); California High School Proficiency Examination.
