Don't Forget!


During CAASPP testing, students will use headphones or earbuds to listen to videos and audio items. Many students prefer to use their own headphones/earbuds for comfort reasons. For this purpose, we do recommend that students bring their own to school, however, the school can not be responsible for any damaged or lost headphones/earbuds. We do not recommend allowing students to bring expensive headphones to school. Headphones or earbuds must have a 3.5mm audio jack (the "old school" kind) -- wireless, USB, or other non-standard jacks can not be used during testing. Each classroom will have some headphones for student use, if students are not able to bring their own.
