Dublin students continue to turn in strong results in multiple subject areas on the annual California Assessments of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), in results released Monday by the California Department of Education. Dublin Unified ranks among the top-scoring districts in Alameda County and far exceeded the state average in assessments for both English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 were given the computer-based tests last spring.
These tests, also commonly known as the Smarter Balanced Assessments, were implemented across the state and the nation for the third straight year, assessing student performance in the areas of English Language Arts/Literacy and Math.
Overall, Dublin students score at high levels across the District. Seventy-three (73) percent of students tested in all grade levels met or exceeded the standards in Mathematics for the second year in a row. Seventy-six (76) percent of our students tested in all grade levels met or exceeded the standards in English-Language Arts and Literacy, a drop of three percentage points from 2015-16. Dublin far exceeds the state average, which is 48.5 percent for ELA and 37.6 percent in Mathematics, according to information released by the CDE.
