Baywood Performance Data

On the API Base reports, schools are ranked in ten categories of equal size, called deciles, from one (lowest) to ten (highest). A school's statewide rank compares that school to other schools of the same type in the entire state. The school types are elementary, middle, and high. Each decile contains 10 percent of all schools of that type. A school's statewide rank is the decile where that school's API Base falls compared with the Base APIs of the other schools statewide of the same school type. The Base API summarizes a school's performance on the spring Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. It serves as the baseline score, or starting point, of performance.

In addition to statewide ranks, schools are ranked compared to 100 other schools with similar demographic characteristics. The APIs for this group of 100 schools are ranked into ten categories of equal size, called deciles, from one (lowest) to ten (highest). Each decile contains 10 percent of all of the 100 similar schools in the comparison group. The school's similar schools rank is the decile where that school's Base API falls compared with the Base APIs of the 100 other similar schools in the comparison group to come.
