The State Testing Export Files screen in Aeries allows the creation of export files for for the following: 

  • California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) -  Administers the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment (SBAC), California Alternate Assessments (CAA), California Science Test (CAST) and California Spanish Assessment (CSA)
  • English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) - Administers both the Initial (IELPAC) and Summative (ELPAC) Assessments

Each testing vendor provides several file layouts to identify students that will be taking the tests with modified test settings or accommodations, to identify students that will be taking alternate tests, and to identify students that will not be taking certain tests because of a Parent/Guardian Exemption or Medical Emergency. Export files using these file layouts can be created in the State Testing Export Files screen in Aeries.

NOTE:  At this time (12/17/2020) CDE has not released new file layout for the CAASPP Student Test Assignment. We will be working on updating the CAASPP Student Condition Codes (Template version 2020-21) in the near future. 

The State Testing Export Files can be found under School Info | Imports and Exports in the navigation. Or by filtering for CAASPP or ELPAC.

Non-admin user accounts will need Administer to the Test Settings (STS) table for the State Testing Export Files node to be available to them. Permissions can be set up in the Security page by the System Admin. Security for the Test Settings can be found under the Test Scores Table/Program Area.

NOTE: The template versions that the State Testing Export Files screen supports is displayed next to the file names
