• California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA)
     
    The CAPA is the alternate assessment for science. This test is designed for students in grades 5, 8, and 10, who have an IEP and who have a significant cognitive disability.  For 2014–15, the CAPA ELA and mathematics has been eliminated and will be replaced by the successor California Alternate Assessment (CAA) field test.  However, students are required to participate in the CAPA science assessment until there is a successor assessment aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
