No More California API Scores
February 24th, 2015 5:18 PM


California schools will not be reporting Academic Performance Index (API) scores for 2014. The California Department of Education (CDE) instead has reported a 3 year API average.


For those looking for progressive improvement in API scores, this may cause some confusion.  Consider the scenario where a school’s API improved each year in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The 3 year average will be lower than the school’s 2013 score.  It will appear that the school’s performance has declined.   On the other hand, a school whose API scores have declined year-over-year will appear to be improving.

Complete this form to request a copy of the California Department of Education “Status of the Academic Performance Index and the 3-Year Academic Information Guide,” prepared by the California Department of Education.
