CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL EXIT EXAMINATION (CAHSEE)
CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL EXIT EXAMINATION (CAHSEE) State law, enacted in 1999, authorized the development of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) which students in California public schools will have to pass to earn a high school diploma. Beginning with the 2005-06 school year, all California public school students are required to pass the CAHSEE and meet all other state and local requirements to learn a high school diploma.
The CAHSEE assesses two subject areas-English-language arts and mathematics.
1. The English-language arts part of the exam consists of multiple-choice questions and a writing task. The multiple choice format is used to assess work analysis, reading comprehension, literary response and analysis, writing strategies, and writing conventions (spelling, grammar, and punctuation). In addition to the multiple-choice questions, students are asked to write one essay on a specific topic or in response to a literary or informational passage. 2. The mathematics portion of CAHSEE addresses state mathematics content standards. It includes statistics, data analysis and probability, number sense, measurement and geometry, algebra and functions, mathematical reasoning, and Algebra I. Students must demonstrate strong computational skills and a foundation in arithmetic, including working with decimals, fractions and percentages. The mathematics exam consists of all multiple-choice questions.
All students are required to take the CAHSEE for the first time in the tenth grade. Students who do not pass one or both parts of the CAHSEE in the tenth grade will be given up to five additional opportunities to take the test. Students retake only the part(s) of the exam not passed. School provide remediation for students who do not pass the test.
To find more information about the CAHSEE Program, please contact your child’s teachers or contact the school office. Additional information is posted on the internet at: http//www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs
