Student Achievement / School Accountability
- API - Academic Performance Index (API) Growth Report The API is the centerpiece of the statewide accountability system in California public education. The Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of 1999 (Chapter 3, Statutes of 1999) requires that the California Department of Education (CDE) annually calculate APIs for California public schools, including charter schools, and publish school rankings based on these APIs. The PSAA also requires the establishment of a minimum five-percent annual API growth target for each school as well as an overall statewide API performance target for all schools.
- STAR Test Results
These are the Academic Performance Indices (APIs) computed by the California Department of Education for every school. Each school’s API is a weighted composite of scores from all areas of the SAT9 tests. The scores are on a scale of 200 -1,000 with 800 as the State’s designated target for a high level of achievement.
