California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE):
CAHSEE is aligned to the standards in English/Language Arts through Grade 10 and Mathematics through Algebra 1-2.
All California public school students must pass the CAHSEE to receive a diploma. The CAHSEE has two parts:
1. Reading/Writing section with both multiple-choice questions and a writing task, and
2. Mathematics section with multiple-choice questions.
Beginning with the class of 2006, all students must pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to receive a diploma in the State of California. The examination is based on the California State Content Standards for English/Language Arts and Mathematics. All tenth graders are required to take the exam in spring. If either or both of the English/Language Arts and Mathematics portions of the test are not passed, the student will continue to retake the parts not passed during grade 11 and 12 until both parts have been passed.
