6TH - 12TH GRADE MATHEMATICS PATHWAYS 

The criteria for placement in middle school mathematics is based on multiple measures including classroom grades, final exam scores, and the Spring 2022 i-Ready Diagnostic assessment results. 
 

FALL 2022 MATH COURSE PLACEMENT CRITERIA FOR 6TH GRADE 

Multiple measures will be used to determine 6th grade math placement for the 2022-23 school year. These measures will include results from both the Spring 2022 i-Ready Math Diagnostic and the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).
 
 Letters informing placement for 6th grade math will be emailed in late July after all state testing scores have been secured. Please do not contact your child's 5th grade teacher or your middle school counselor to ask for testing scores.  
 

2022 SUMMER MATH PLACEMENT TESTING FOR NEW CUSD STUDENTS

New students to Capistrano Unified that would like to be enrolled in an accelerated math course in 6th - 9th grade will need to complete a math placement test. If your child will be enrolling in the regular grade-level course for his/her grade level, you do not need to complete the registration form. 
 
Placement testing for incoming 6th grade students will include an i-Ready adaptive assessment. A study guide is not provided for this assessment.
