California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)


The CAHSEE is a pass/fail test consisting of two parts – English Language Arts and Mathematics. The English section covers California’s content standards through 10th grade in a multiple-choice format with one essay. The math section, completely multiple-choice, covers math standards through 6th and 7th grade and Algebra 1. Students must pass both sections of the exam in order to graduate. The first time it is given to students is the spring of the sophomore year.  If they do not pass the test, they have the chance to take it again the junior year. If students pass one section of the test, they do not take that section again. The test is untimed and is administered over two days.

On August 26, 2015, Governor Brown signed SB 725 into law. This law suspends the CAHSEE as a requirement for a high school diploma for students in the Class of 2015.

For additional information about the CAHSEE go to the California Department of Education's CAHSEE website.
