In accordance with the California Public Schools Accountability Act, the California Department of Education has implemented standardized tests to ensure compliance with curriculum guidelines and measure academic progress in California public schools.
School Accountability Report Card (SARC) – California public schools annually provide information about themselves to the community allowing the public to evaluate and compare schools for student achievement, environment, resources and demographics.

Smarter Balanced (SBAC) measures achievement on the California Achievement test, given each year to students in grades 3-8 and 11. These tests assess whether a school is meeting state educational goals and measures progress from year to year.
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a statewide accountability system mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 which requires each state to ensure that all schools and districts make Adequate Yearly Progress
Data Sharing Information for Parents:
Delta Elementary Charter School has agreed to partner with NWEA (an Oregon non-profit organization that provides Measures of Academic Progress (MAP®) assessment services to Delta Elementary Charter School ) to conduct a linking study between MAP scores and state summative assessment scores for the purpose of updating the California linking study. These state test linking studies examine the correspondence between the performance of students taking NWEA’s MAP assessment with their performance on the California state tests. The studies provide a gauge or metric for school teachers and administrators to predict their students’ likely performance on the state test.
In order to complete these studies, NWEA requires a sample of students who complete both assessments during the same testing season, and then NWEA completes a series of statistical analyses that permit NWEA to estimate cut scores on the MAP assessment that correspond to the various performance levels on the state test. Delta Elementary Charter School has agreed to participate in the NWEA linking study by providing assessment data on MAP and California state tests. No personally identifiable student or school information will be shared or disclosed in NWEA’s final reports. This information is invaluable to our school and we are looking forward to the results.
