1.0 Percent Threshold Survey

CAASPP 2022–23 California Alternate Assessments
1.0 Percent Threshold Survey

The Every Student Succeeds Act requires local educational agencies (LEAs) to notify the California Department of Education if they expect to exceed 1.0 percent of their total assessed student population taking alternate assessments for English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science and to provide the justification for surpassing that threshold. All LEAs must submit this survey regardless of whether they have students who are identified to take the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs) for the 2022–23 school year.

When completing this survey, the LEA is to do so as the district of residence (district of accountability). For example, some LEA programs are composed of students from that LEA as well as students who have a different district of residence. Report on the basis of all students who have your LEA listed as their district of residence in the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS).

Although you do not need to submit the participation numbers in the survey this year, the following process is provided to assist you in confirming whether or not your LEA will exceed the 1.0 percent cap of students identified to take the CAAs by content area.
 
  1. The number of students in the LEA who are identified to take the CAAs in the grades specified for English language arts, mathematics, and science.
  1. The total number of students enrolled in the LEA in the grades specified for English language arts, mathematics, and science.
  1. The percent of students in the LEA who are identified to take the CAAs in the grades specified for English language arts, mathematics, and science.
The following table is provided as a resource to help calculate the total number of students identified for the alternate assessments. You do not need to enter anything in this table.
