State Testing Technology Skills Practice

One of the challenges for students taking our state tests are that they're all computerized now. It's expected that students know how to scroll through information, drag and drop, and access icons for help. To make sure your younger children are prepared (testing begins in 3rd grade), check out this website! It was created by a technology teacher in Brentwood Schools, Jennifer Derita. At the top of the page you will find links to fun games and activities that offer "CAASP" (the new "STAR" acronym) practice by grade level.

This site also includes great educational resources and fun technology lessons to do with your students. Enjoy!
