California Science Test - Key Messages
The CA Department of Education (CDE) will publicly release the 2018-19 California Science Test (CAST) results for the first operational administration. In preparation, the CDE has developed the CAST—Key Messages web page to inform parents about the CAST and the 2018-19 CAST results. In fall 2019, the CDE will seek the California State Board of Education’s approval of the CAST threshold scores; after approval is obtained, the CDE will release the results.
