API 2010 test results for San Francisco, San Mateo County school districts 

California released the 2010 API base scores Thursday. Below are the full results for the school districts in San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

What API and the numbers mean:

  • The Academic Performance Index, or API, is used by the state of California to measure student achievement. The scores set goals for how much a school should improve during the school year.
  • Rankings are calculated per school based on students’ collective performance on tests in English, math, history and science. Schools can score as low as 200 and as high as 1,000. The state’s target for all schools is 800.
  • Results are released twice a year. Spring results set the base standard from which schools measure how well they are improving test scores. API scores that measure growth scores are released in the fall.
  •  Schools are given a ranking of 1 through 10 for how they to compare how schools are doing to similar schools statewide. A rank of 10 is the best
  • An “A” indicates the school is at or above the statewide target performance in 2010
