Assessment Support

The C-SAPA Department plays a role in administering required statewide assessments to students enrolled in SCOE schools and programs and convenes a monthly meeting to support assessment coordinators in schools and districts within the Sacramento region.

Capital Regional Assessment Network 

The Capital Regional Assessment Network (CRAN) is comprised of assessment and accountability professionals working in county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools who meet monthly to learn, share, and network.  

Meeting content includes updates on California’s assessment and accountability programs, guests from the California Department of Education, shared resources developed by CRAN members, and development of new ideas for displaying and sharing data through our Data Visualization segment.
