The median API score reports the 2008 test results posted by the school that falls exactly in the middle of the pack. California’s Academic Performance Index (API) combines several tests into a single number between 200 and 1000 for each school. The tests that make up the API and their weighting are listed on the California Department of Education website.
In 2008, the average score statewide was 742. The state’s goal is for every school to reach 800.
