Definition: Percentage of all public school students tested who completed the English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test with a score of Standard Met or Above, by socioeconomic status (e.g., in 2016, 35% of economically disadvantaged students in California scored at or above their grade-level standard).
Data Source: California Dept. of Education, CAASPP Test Results (Oct. 2016).
Footnote: Students are tested in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 11. The year presented is the year in which the test was administered. Students are considered economically disadvantaged if they are eligible for free or reduced price school meals, or if neither parent graduated from high school. For an explanation of the ELA standards, by grade, see the CAASPP website. The abbreviation S refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 20 estimated students with scores meeting or exceeding the standard. N/A means that data are not available.
