CAHSEE English-Language Arts
CAHSEE English-Language Arts is a course that prepares students for success on the exit exam. In this course, students complete a Diagnostic Pretest that simulates the English-Language Arts section of the CAHSEE. The Diagnostic Pretest provides students with individualized study plans that direct them to the most relevant practice content. After multiple opportunities to practice the concepts and skills tested on the CAHSEE, students complete a Posttest that shows their progress preparing for the CAHSEE.
Content strands include writing applications, word analysis, reading comprehension, literary response and analysis, writing strategies, and writing conventions. All practice and assessment opportunities in the course simulate the format and terminology of the official exam. In addition, the course provides students with an overview of the exam and test-taking tips.
Course content is aligned to the official blueprint for the CAHSEE English-Language Arts exam.
