California Assessment of Academic Achievement; Legislative Intent
It is the intent of the Legislature that the department minimize the impact to teachers and administrators and state resources by ensuring, where feasible, that future California computer-based assessments utilize the assessment delivery system infrastructure and hosting platform outlined in the Smarter Balanced Technical Hosting Solution, as approved by the Department of Technology for the statewide pupil assessment system. All computer-based statewide assessments, to the extent possible and most cost-effective, shall be developed to operate on the existing approved infrastructure, provide a single logical access point, support a single secure browser for remote and local access, and utilize uniform system development standards. The assessment delivery system infrastructure shall be scalable in nature to allow the department to incorporate additional computer-based statewide assessments as funded.
