Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionDecember 2007View Full Publication
As part of its work in developing a performance accountability framework for higher education, the Commission conducted an analysis of student performance on standardized tests at the high school and middle school levels.
National test results show that California is behind most other states in giving its students a high school education of the quality that prepares them for success at college.
State figures show that, within California, Latino and African American students and students from schools in poor neighborhoods tend to have low test scores, indicating that the state is not delivering opportunities to qualify for higher education equally to all of its residents.
