Technology & Testing
This interactive dashboard displays the Spring 2018 State Assessment results for 3rd-8th grades in Language Arts and Mathematics. In addition to the 2018 results, the Distance from “3” reports show “growth” from one year to the next. This dashboard was modeled after elements of the California School Dashboard released by the California Department of Education in March 2017. The California School Dashboard includes easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learner progress and suspension rates. We hope to emulate other elements of the state dashboard and even improve upon them to tell the story of Lucia Mar.
These test results are just one tool teachers and families can use to better understand how well your student is performing in school. The scores are simply one gauge on the dashboard that you and your child’s teacher can use to discuss how far your student has progressed in mastering the new standards. Other school tests, for example, and classroom assignments provide equally important information. Additionally, these results will not be used to determine if a student moves on to the next grade.
How do I read my student’s score report?
How do this year’s test results compare to previous years?
According to the law, no more than 60 percent of API can be based on assessment results. The remaining 40 percent needs to be based on other college and career indicators, including college entrance exams, accelerated coursework, attendance, graduation rates, early indicators of college readiness, innovative measures, course taking behaviors, and career preparedness.
