**About API Score
The purpose of the Academic Performance Index (API) is to measure the year-over-year growth in academic performance for California schools. The API summarizes a school's standardized test scores into a single number, which ranges from 200 to 1000. The statewide API goal is 800 for all schools; higher numbers generally indicate better performance on the tests. The 2007 Base API was calculated using each school's test results from the state's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program and the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) taken during the 2006-2007 school year. The Base API is used to measure academic improvement from one year to the next by comparing it to the Growth API.
