Data are from the California Department of Education, California Standards Tests (CST) Research Files for San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties, and California. In 2003, the CST replaced the Stanford Achievement Test, ninth edition (SAT/9). The CSTs in English–language arts, mathematics, science, and history–social science are administered only to students in California public schools. Except for a writing component that is administered as part of the grade four and grade seven English–language arts tests, all questions are multiple-choice. These tests were developed specifically to assess students’ knowledge of the California content standards. The State Board of Education adopted these standards, which specify what all children in California are expected to know and be able to do in each grade or course. The 2013 Algebra I CSTs were required for students who were enrolled in the grade/course at the time of testing or who had completed a course during the 2012-2013 school year, including 2012 summer school. In order to protect student confidentiality, no scores were reported in the research files for any group of ten or fewer students. The following types of scores are reported by grade level and content area for each school, district, county, and the state: % Advanced, % Proficient, % Basic, % Below Basic, and % Far Below Basic, and are rounded to the nearest ones place.
