This site will educate you about the CHSPE and provide registration information and instructions for taking the test in your area.
- Registration for the March 22, 2014 administration of the CHSPE is open. It is now the Emergency Registration Period. The Emergency registration deadline is March 18, 2014. Registration materials including printed Registration Form, proof of eligibility, and appropriate payment, must be received by mail in the CHSPE Office by 5 p.m. on that date or you will not be registered. You cannot complete your registration on-line. All test areas that are not designated as All Testing Areas will close as of 5 p.m. on March 18, 2014.
- Important Notice: As of May 1, 2014, the current California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE) test series will change. Examinees who have not yet earned a Certificate of Proficiency by May 1, 2014 will need to begin the testing process again in the new test series. Sections and subtests previously passed in the current test series will cease to be valid. Examinees who register for the March 22, 2014 administration will be allowed to change their test date to the October 2014 exam. However, since the new test will be given in October, sections of the old test that an examinee may have passed will not be accepted as part of the new exam. Those sections will no longer be valid.

Introducing a new feature: Google Translate
The CHSPE Web site is currently published in English. For those who speak other languages, we've made it easy to use Google's translation service to translate our information into other languages. To translate the entire CHSPE Web Site, just choose a language from the dropdown menu at the bottom left of the English pages. We hope easy access to this free service is helpful. Because Google Translate is an automated service, content may contain mistranslations of difficult or obscure words and phrases. The Sacramento County Office of Education and the California Department of Education take no responsibility for any mistranslations due to use of the third-party Google Translate function.
