Alameda Unified School District students performed better on statewide tests of English-language arts and mathematics skills than the Alameda County and state averages, according to test results released Friday by the State Department of Education.
Results from the California Standards Test (CST) show that district-wide, 80 percent or more of local students in grades 2-7 ranked as proficient or advanced in English-language arts; for 11th graders, the figure was 75 percent.
In math, 79 percent or more of AUSD students in grades 2-7 scored as proficient or advanced.
The CST is the main component of the state's 2012 Standardized Testing and Reporting assessment, known as STAR.
Statewide, 57 percent of students scored as proficient or advanced in English-language arts and 51 percent as proficient or advanced in math.
Detailed results for AUSD and for individual schools, including charter schools, are available here on the STAR website.
