test scores

Alameda’s public schools saw test scores rise this past year, though not enough for some schools that have consistently failed to meet test score targets to escape federal scrutiny.

Overall, the district saw its Academic Performance Index score rise six points, from 841 to 847, with 12 of the district’s 15 schools earning scores of 800 or more, results released by the California Department of Education today showed. The state has set a score of 800 on the 1,000-point scale as the target it wants schools to meet.
