Data from the State
The state publishes tons of information on its web site about its testing program known as STAR.
OUSD's CHKS (California Healthy Kids Survey) interactive data website, a joint project of the Community Schools & Student Services Department (CSSS), Continuous School Improvement (CIG) and Research Assessment & Data (RAD). The goal of the site is to make your school’s data easier to explore and use to guide your continuous improvement efforts.
Academic Performance Index
The state also keeps track of something called the Academic Performance Index. These statistics are supposed to indicate whether a school is performing at, above or below where it should be.
Dataquest is another useful service from the state that makes it easy to find data about schools and districts.
California Standards Test (CST)
OUSD has built a website section that houses some of the illuminating reports developed by the Research, Assessment and Data (RAD) Department. As more analysis is done, they’ll add to the current offerings.
