Education Code Section 60855 required the California Department of Education (CDE) to contract for an independent evaluation of the CAHSEE beginning in January 2000. Each evaluation report must include the following: (1) an analysis of pupil performance, broken down by grade level, gender, race or ethnicity, and portion of the exam, including any trends that become apparent over time, (2) an analysis of the exam's effects, if any, on college attendance, pupil retention, graduation, and dropout rates, including an analysis of these effects on the subgroups, and (3) an analysis of whether the exam is likely to have, or has, differential effects, whether beneficial or detrimental, on the subgroups described above. The evaluation reports must include recommendations to improve the quality, fairness, validity, and reliability of the CAHSEE.
