Coronado Pathways Charter School is a comprehensive high school located in Coronado, Calif., that first opened its doors for the 2012-13 school year. The school offers the flexibility of online instruction with face-to-face academic support from site-based, credentialed teachers. The school's focus is on designing and delivering a personalized education as well as addressing diverse learning preferences and contexts. The Coronado Unified School District has always included an alternative option for at-risk high school students, but has not provided the flexibility in scheduling that would allow traditional university-bound students to take advantage of extra-curricular experiences during the school day and still meet the academic requirements for college admission. The district is also restricted in the number and types of classes it can offer because of limited capacity (seats) at Coronado High School. The online school develops personalized educational plans for each student, offers a much wider variety of courses, and allows students to explore potential career paths through apprenticeships, internships, and service learning projects.

In 2014-2015 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
In 2014-2015 California tested students using the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), administered through the online Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments. These are comprehensive, end-of-year assessments of grade-level learning that measure progress toward college and career readiness. Each test, English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics is comprised of two parts: (1) a computer adaptive test and (2) a performance task; administered within a 12-week window beginning at 66 percent of the instructional year for grades three through eight, or within in a 7-week window beginning at 80 percent of the instructional year for grade eleven. The summative assessments are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA and mathematics. The tests capitalize on the strengths of computer adaptive testing—efficient and precise measurement across the full range of achievement and timely turnaround of results.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System was established on January 1, 2014. The CAASPP System replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program, which became inoperative on July 1, 2013.
