CALIFORNIA ASSESSMENT PROGRAM SCORES : HOW TO READ THE SCORES

Here are California Assessment Program writing scores earned by eighth graders in some Los Angeles County public schools last spring.

The previous year’s scores also are provided for comparison purposes, although CAP officials warn against reading too much into one-year variations.

The scaled score is a combination of results on each of the various types of writing tasks assigned. The average score in the state was 259, up four points over last year’s score, while the average for students in Los Angeles County was 236, representing a six-point rise.

Relative rank is a way to compare a district or a school with another that is similar in terms of student socioeconomic makeup and students’ ability to speak, read and write 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 ranking (on a score of 1 to 99), comparing its scores to those of every other school or district in California.

Other scores will be appearing in appropriate regional and suburban editions of The Times.
