California State Testing

The California Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program measures how well the California education system and its students are performing. These tests measure student achievement in mathematics, English-language arts, science, and history-social science. Teachers, parents and education officials can use the results to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to improve student learning. Students and their parents can compare individual academic abilities against grade-level requirements and the results of other students in that grade.
