The state of California recently released the 2011 Base Academic Performance Index Report which includes school growth targets and rankings. The state uses two types of school rankings to compare school performance on the 2011 STAR tests. The first, the Statewide Ranking, shows a school’s performance in relation to all schools in the state. The second, the Similar Schools Rank, compares the performance of schools that have similar demographic characteristics. Both show schools ranked on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest.
