The state's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program serves as the basis for determining whether schools are meeting both state and federal accountability goals. Use the lookup table below to find results for tests taken in 2012 and 2013.
For each test students receive one of five grades: advanced, proficient, basic, below basic and far below basic.
The state's goal is that all students score at least proficient, a level that is essentially on track to enter a university after high school. The scores shown here represent the percentage of students scoring proficient or advanced, the top two of five achievement levels.
All students are tested in English language arts and math. Other subject tests are given only at specific grade levels. High school students, regardless of grade level, often take the same subject-based exams. Combined grade level scores are represented in grade "13" in the charts.
Scores are not reported whenever 10 or fewer students were tested in the same grade. Some small schools are not included here for that reason. More detailed results are available at http://star.cde.ca.gov.
