CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 3233


Introduced by Assembly Member Kiley

February 16, 2018


An act to add Section 60631 to the Education Code, relating to pupil assessment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3233, as amended, Kiley. Pupil assessment: performance standards.
Existing law establishes a system of public elementary and secondary education in this state, through which local educational agencies throughout the state provide instruction in kindergarten and grades 1 to 12, inclusive, at the schools they operate. Existing law establishes the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) as the statewide system of pupil assessments, under which various assessments are required or authorized to be administered in public schools, as specified. Existing law requires, on or before October 1, 2016, the State Board of Education to adopt evaluation rubrics for specified purposes. Pursuant to this requirement, the state board adopted evaluation rubrics in September 2016 and created the California School Dashboard, which is a graphically presented, publicly accessible interface that displays school performance data based on the evaluation rubrics.
This bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to recommend, and the state board to adopt, grade 11 performance standards for the academic indicator on evaluation rubrics and the California School Dashboard based on summative results from pupil assessments on English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8, inclusive, and grade 11, that measure content standards adopted by the state board. The bill would further require that grade 11 performance standards for the academic indicator on evaluation rubrics and the California School Dashboards to incorporate results from specified assessments. The bill would further provide that, if administered to all grade 11 pupils within a local educational agency, assessments that meet specified federal requirements may be reported on the California School Dashboard as a local academic indicator.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 60631 is added to the Education Code, immediately following Section 60630, to read:
60631.

(a)The Superintendent shall recommend, and the state board shall adopt, performance standards for the academic indicator on evaluation rubrics and the California School Dashboard based on summative results from pupil assessments on English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8, inclusive, and grade 11, that measure content standards adopted by the state board.

(b)Grade

60631.
 Grade 11 performance standards for the academic indicator on evaluation rubrics and the California School Dashboard adopted pursuant to Section 52064.5 shall incorporate results from summative assessments administered pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 60640, and if applicable and 60640. If administered to all grade 11 pupils within a local educational agency, assessments that meet federal requirements under Section 1111(b)(2)(H) of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (20 U.S.C. Sec. 6301 et seq.) as amended by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (Public Law 114-95). 114-95), may be reported on the California School Dashboard as a local academic indicator.
