California Science Test (CAST)

LFLCS Seniors will be taking the CAST (California Science Test) in February during their on campus pods. This assessment was designed not only to measure student performance in science, but also to encourage and reinforce the innovative ways science is being taught in classrooms throughout the state. The test is an online test conducted at the school and is a requirement for all California high school students. It does not affect their gpa. The test takes about 2 hours to complete. Students who complete the assessment can expect a "reward" from their teacher!
