Flag Definitions for the 2001 Base API Data File

Flag values and definitions for the 2001 Base Academic Performance Index (API) Data File.

Flag Value Flag Definition
1
The school's proportion of students excused at parent request compared to its Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program enrollment on the first day of testing is equal to or greater than 10 percent.

When a school's proportion of parental waivers is equal to or greater than 10 but less than 20 percent, the California Department of Education conducts standard statistical tests to check whether the pupils tested at the school were representative of the entire school's population.

This school failed the statistical test or its proportion of parental waivers in 2001 was 20 percent or greater, therefore, the school does not have a valid 2001 API Base.
2
This school (or the district on behalf of the school) has certified to the California Department of Education that an irregularity in testing procedure occurred during the Spring 2001 Stanford 9 testing.

Therefore, a 2001 API Base will not be reported for this school.
3
The district superintendent (or principal, if an independent charter school) has certified that the scores obtained on the 2001 administration of the Stanford 9 do not reflect the performance of the students at the school.

Therefore, a 2001 Base API will not be reported for this School.
4
For at least one Stanford 9 content area, this school failed to test a significant proportion of students who were not exempt from testing.

Therefore, a 2001 Base API will not be reported for this school.
5
This school (or the district on behalf of the school) reported that it would correct 2001 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) demographic information through the testing contractor. The district has forwarded the corrections to the testing contractor in a timely manner. However, the information has not been corrected.

The California Department of Education will post 2001 Base API for this school when corrected data become available.
6
This school will not receive a 2001 Base API because it has unresolved discrepancies in its demographic data for the 2001 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR).
