In California grades two through 11 take the SAT 9 and an additional test
supposedly aligned to math and language arts standards (but since we can't
see the tests, who knows?) that are going to be included in the calculation
of the Academic Performance Index for each school.. This year the language
arts portion was included in the API; before this year only the scores on
the SAT 9 made up the API....And in 2004, the wonderful High School Exit
Exam will start....The API is the number used to discriminate among the best
schools and the not so best schools...

Karen, do you know the following or where I might find this information?
How many high-stakes tests are administered to K-12 students per year?
In Va, this depends on the grade level and, in some cases, what individual
schools or divisions do (some tests that weren't originally designed as high
stakes are used for high stakes decisions). IN VA, we have PALS (for grades
k-3), SOLs in grades 3,5,8, and at the end of certain high school courses,
and Stanford 9. Some school divisions use Stanford 9 in other years as
well. We also have a pre-algebra readiness test coming down the pike.
