California High School Exit Exam

The State required students to take and successfully pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) in language arts and mathematics as a condition for high school graduation starting with the Class of 2006. The purpose of the exam is to:

  • Improve student achievement in high school
  • Assure that graduates meet identified state content standards in reading, writing, and mathematics

Students take the CAHSSE in grade 10 and must retake those parts of the examination not previously passed in order to receive a high school diploma. Each year, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction designates testing dates for the CAHSEE. Results of the exam are returned to students within eight weeks of each administration.
