* For grades 2 - 7, the California STAR testing program publishes a single Mean Scale math score for each grade; they are presented above. For grades 8 -11, however, STAR employs up to eight separate, but overlapping, tests. Here is STAR's explanation of the various tests:
"Mathematics tests for grades eight through eleven include Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Integrated Mathematics 1, 2, and 3. Students in grades eight and nine who were not yet completing Algebra I took the General Mathematics CST, and students in grades nine through eleven took the Summative High School Mathematics Test after completing Algebra II, Integrated Mathematics 3, or a higher math course."
For the table above, instead of presenting up to eighteen different figures covering those four grades, DHLLN has chosen one representative test for each grade level, as follows:
8th grade: Algebra I
9th grade: Geometry
10th grade: Algebra II
11th grade: Summative High School Math
In the table above, the grade 8 - 11 math scores are displayed with two numbers. The bottom number indicates the percentage of students (at that grade level) who took the test. The top number is those students' Mean Scale score.

The table design is copyright© (2006) by DHLLN. However, the table may be freely copied and re-published, so long as each copy bears the URL http://www.killthegoose.com/StarResults.html . If the table is re-published on a web site, the URL shall be a live link.
The table above has been designed so that it will print on a single 8-1/2 x 11 sheet, directly from your browser, so long as you tell your printer to use the "landscape" print orientation. You may also need to hit "File" and "Page Setup" and reduce the margins.
If the borderlines between cells come out too dark, try using a Netscape/Mozilla browser instead of Internet Explorer. But if you do not have access to a Netscape browser, you could save the web page to any location on your computer, then use Excel (your Microsoft spreadsheet program) to open the file, clean it up, and print it. If the lines are still too dark, highlight the entire Excel spreadsheet (Ctrl - A), then hit "Format" and "Cells" and "Border" and change the border to a very light one, or none at all. Excel may spread the table out onto several sheets of paper.
