School and District Scores of State Writing Tests Taken by 8th-Graders

HOW TO READ THE SCORES Here are the school-by-school results of the California Assessment Program's writing exam that was administered to eighth-graders throughout the state last spring.

The exam consists of eight tests of writing ability and represents the state's biggest step to date away from the much-criticized multiple-choice method of testing academic achievement.

Results are listed by school district and by individual school so that parents can compare the performance of youngsters in their community with that of students in the rest of Los Angeles County and throughout California. (Schools are listed alphabetically by district.)

Because the exam was changed substantially last year with the addition of two more writing tests, only the latest round of scores is listed.

The scaled score is a combination of results on each of the eight separate writing tests. The statewide average score was 255 for eighth-graders, and the average in Los Angeles County was 230.

Relative rank is a way to compare a district or school with another that is similar to it in terms of student ethnic and socioeconomic makeup and students' ability to speak English fluently, as well as how often those students move from school to school. The value listed is the school's percentile rank within its comparison group.

State rank shows the school or district's rank (on a scale of 1 to 99), comparing its scores to scores of every other school or district in the state.
