Post-Test Workshop
What’s New in 2013
• Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS)
performance levels are now also reported for
students in grades 8–11who took the grade-level
STS for RLA, STS for Algebra I, and STS for
Geometry.
• The score for the California Standards Test (CST)
for Writing is no longer doubled; possible scores
are 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Manual
(M) 2 – 3
What’s New in 2013
• ELA scale scores for the grades 4 and 7 CSTs and
California Modified Assessment (CMA) will be
provided based on the multiple-choice items only
and the reporting cluster “Writing Applications”
is no longer part of the CST and CMA ELA
cluster groups; instead, the writing score is
provided as a standalone score called “Writing
Response Score.”
5
August 2013
Post-Test Workshop
M2–3
What’s New in 2013
• Enrollment and exit code data to determine which
students are counted as “continuously enrolled” for
accountability purposes, previously collected for
(CBEDS), were not collected on STAR answer
documents or in Pre-ID. Instead, these data were
extracted from the California Longitudinal Pupil
Achievement Data System (CALPADS).
• Please refer to pages 2 and 3 in the 2013 Post Test
Guide for a list of all changes.

Purposes of STAR Reports
• Report progress toward proficiency on the state’s
academic content standards
• Notify where improvement needed
– To help students’ achievement
– To improve educational programs
• Provide data for state and federal accountability
programs

Results: Performance Levels
• State goal: All students score at proficient or above
• 350 or higher scale score
– CST
– CMA
– STS
• CAPA proficient: 35 or higher

Results:
Other Performance Levels
• Advanced
• Basic cut score
– CST: 300
– CMA: 300
– STS: 300
– CAPA: 30
• Below basic
• Far below basic
• For each testing program, cut points
vary for advanced and below basic by
– Subject
– Grade

Post-Test Workshop
M 8 – 11;
Appendix B
Results: Scale Scores
• Scale scores allow the same score to mean the
same thing across test versions within grade and
content area.
• Scale scores account for differences in difficulty.
• Scale score ranges by program are:
– CST, CMA, STS: 150–600 for each grade and
subject
– CAPA: 15–60 for each level and subject
12

Results: Equating
• Psychometric procedure
• Adjusts for test difficulty
• Additional information in the technical report on
the CDE Web site

Results: Reporting Clusters
(Content Area)
• Three to six clusters for each subject
• May be useful as indicators of individual or group
strengths and weaknesses
• But. . . reporting clusters should be interpreted with
caution
14
August 2013
Post-Test Workshop
M 9 – 11;
Appendix A
Results: Reporting Clusters
Cautions
• Cluster percent correct available for CSTs, CMA,
STS
• Based on small numbers of items; therefore, may
not be reliable or generalized
• NOT equated from year to year
• Should not compare reporting cluster percent
correct from year to year
15

Using Results
• For instructional decisions in conjunction with
other data
• Used in Academic Performance Index (API)
calculations, all grades and subjects: CST, CMA,
CAPA
• Used in adequate yearly progress (AYP)
calculations, ELA and mathematics:
– CST — grades 2–8
– CMA — grades 3–8
– CAPA — grades 2–8, 10

Year-to-Year Comparisons
Do Compare CSTs: Same Grade
and Same Content Area
• Mean scale score
– Same content and grade, varying years
• Percent in each performance level
– Same content by grade across years
 e.g., 2012 grade 10 ELA with 2013 grade 10
ELA
22

Post-Test Workshop
M 12 – 15
Year-to-Year Comparisons
Do Compare CSTs: Percent
Proficient and Advanced
• Percentage of students scoring at PROFICIENT
and above
– For a given grade and subject, e.g., Percent
proficient and above for grade 3 math in 2012 and
2013
– For a given subject and aggregated grades,
e.g., Percent proficient and above for grades 2–6
mathematics in 2012 and 2013
– Across grades and a subject, e.g., Percent
proficient and above in all courses and all grades
23
August 2013
Post-Test Workshop
M 12 – 15
Year-to-Year Comparisons
Don’t Compare
• Individual scale scores or statistics based on scale
scores for different grades or content areas
– Subjects by grade are independently scaled
– Different content standards are measured in
different grades
• Cohorts across grades
• Across tests
• Scale scores to percent correct scores
• CAPA to years prior to 2009, due to new standard
setting then

Explain to Parents
Scale Score  Average % correct
cluster score x 600
• Reporting clusters not comparable
– Different difficulty
– Varying number of questions
– Average % correct of clusters  % correct on total test (or
total number of test items)
• Scale scores
– Use conversion tables resulting from statistical procedures
– Equating allows scores to have similar meaning
(e.g., 350 = lowest score for CSTs proficient)
