Overview of the State Accountability Report Card

Information about the requirements and contents of the State Accountability Report Card (STARC).

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires each state to produce an annual report card that summarizes assessment results of students statewide and disaggregated by student groups. Information must also be included on high school graduation rates, teacher qualifications, other indicators used in each state's definition of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), and the AYP status of all schools and districts in the state.

The State Accountability Report Card contains data for the following categories:

Standardized Testing and Reporting Program (STAR) Results
California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) Results
Academic Performance Index (API)
High School Graduation Rate
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
Program Improvement (PI)
