California Educator Reporting System


The Interim Assessment Reporting System and ORS make up the foundation of the new California Educator Reporting System (CERS). As more summative test results are made available in CERS, it will be the one-stop shop for interim and summative assessment results for all CAASPP and ELPAC assessments.

CERS includes results for all assessments, which makes reporting more accessible to all educators. The CERS timeline table shows the schedule for making test results available in CERS.

2022–2023 Administration Year

California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) Student Test Setting File

The California Department of Education (CDE) will rollout the implementation of the Student Test Setting file in which LEAs would submit all student test settings (accommodations and designated supports) to CALPADS instead of loading them directly in the Test Operations Management System (TOMS).
