The CAPA is given to students with significant cognitive disabilities whose disabilities prevent them from taking either the California Standards Tests with accommodations or modifications or the California Modified Assessment with accommodations. District STAR coordinators are responsible for ordering CAPA materials. See the California Department of Education's STAR CAPA blueprints or CAPA Web page for more information.
