Required Student Testing
APL is a public school and must meet State testing requirements
Assessment Testing

APL, along with thousands of schools across California, are participating in a field test of a modern assessment system designed to help shape teaching and learning in the classroom. Known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress - or CASPP - these computer-based tests replace the STAR program. For detailed information, please read this letter from APL Executive Director, Patricia Dougherty.

Additionally, we test our students twice per year using the EdPerformance Test. This is an online, computer generated test, proctored by a teacher, that is extremely useful in helping our teachers more deeply understand your child's unique strengths and areas of struggle. This program gives you and your child's teacher nearly instant feedback on reading and math skills, the essential cornerstones of any student's education. The EdPerformance test is scheduled individually.
