Parents work to answer CST questions.

During John Cabrillo Elementary School’s Open House, parents got the chance to experience the California Standards Test first hand.

As part of the school’s preparation for the California Standards Tests (CSTs), parents were invited to complete a test of second through sixth grade math and language arts questions compiled using real STAR questions released by the state.

Parents were given 20 minutes to complete the assessment.Student proctors monitored parents to ensure that electronic devices were not used and that there was no sharing of answers.

At the completion of the tests, a team of students corrected the assessment and announced winners. Two lucky parents received Kindles for their dedication and hard work.
