School Accountability Measures

API Academic Performance Index

The API Report is required by the state's Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of 1999. This report shows how much a school is improving from year to year based on its API. A school's API is a number that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the results for each school's students on statewide tests. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet. Schools that fall short of 800 are required to meet annual growth targets until that goal is achieved. API targets vary for each school.

There are two API reports: (l) the Base API that is released to schools in the spring and (2) the Growth API that is released in August. These two reports show results from two different school years. The Growth API is compared to the prior year Base API to show how much a school improved from one year to the next. Schools must meet API growth targets for the whole school as well as for all "numerically significant" groups of students in the school. Each Base API and Growth API report includes the school wide API and the APIs for each numerically significant group of students. The Growth API Report determines whether schools met their targets.

AYP- Adequate Yearly Progress Report (NCLB)

The AYP Report is required by the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. This report shows how well schools and school districts are meeting common standards of academic performance, as measured by whether the school or school district makes AYP. Required AYP targets increase yearly until 2013-14 when all schools must have 100 percent of their students performing at or above the proficient level on statewide tests.

By law, all California schools and school districts receive annual AYP results. Each year, schools and school districts must meet four sets of requirements to make AYP. The requirements reflect statewide performance levels and are the same for all schools and school districts of the same type (see table on next page). The requirements include: (1) student participation rate on statewide tests, (2) percentage of students scoring at the proficient level or above in English-language arts and mathematics on statewide tests, (3) API Growth, and (4) graduation rate (if high school students are enrolled). Numerically significant groups of students at a school or school district also must meet participation rate and percent proficient requirements.
