California Standards Test Information
STAR – Standardized Testing and Reporting
API – Academic Performance Index. A score for the entire school based upon how well students do on STAR. It is a score from 200 – 1000. The state’s goal is for all schools to get a score of 800.
Walker's API Goals
Our API last year was 828. Our goal each year is to continually grow.
Our goal for this year is to grow 11 points to 839.
Ultimate goal - all students to score in the proficient range.
Goal for this year – For every student to move up at least one level.
(If each student moves up one level we should be able to achieve at least a 839 API)
