This document should be used in conjunction with the Smarter Balanced Consortium: Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines, available at, and California Code of Regulations, Title 5 (5 CCR) sections 850 through 868 of the emergency regulations, available at, to determine the use of resources for individual students. The appropriate use of universal tools, designated supports, and/or accommodations on CAASPP tests is restricted to only those identified in this document.

Matrix One displays the universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations (embedded and non-embedded) allowed as part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System for 2015–16.

[li]Universal tools (U) are available to all students on the basis of student preference and selection.

Designated supports (D) are available to all students when determined for use by an educator or team of educators (with parent/guardian
and student input, as appropriate) or specified in the student’s IEP or Section 504 plan.

Accommodations (A) must be permitted on CAASPP tests to all eligible students if specified in the student’s IEP or Section 504 plan.[/li]

Instructional supports and resources for the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs) can be found in Part 3, on page 7. Information about requesting the use of unlisted resources is provided in Part 4, which begins on page 8. A list of identified, unlisted resources that have been determined to change the construct being tested is provided on page 9.
