We are often asked if we participate in STAR testing. STAR testing is a method of testing that compares student achievement against others within the state of California only. By reading below, you will see that we have opted to participate in testing that compares our students to the entire nation.

Iowa Assessment Testing

The Iowa Assessments reflect today’s curricula; they have been carefully designed using Common Core State Standards, individual state standards, surveys of classroom teachers, reviews of curriculum guides and instructional materials. The Iowa Assessments continue to offer national comparison data for individuals and groups.

The Iowa Assessments include a National Percentile Ranking (NPR). This compares a student's score with others in the nation in the same grade who took the test at the same time of year. Example: The NPR is based on a scale of 1 to 99, so if a third grade student receives a 75 that means the student did as well or better than 75 percent of other third graders in the nation taking the test at the same time.

How Did We Do?

Below you will find graphical test results from recent Iowa Assessments. Note: Second grade students took a practice test version of the exam and so their results are not matched against the national norm.
