Research Files

These research files contain results from California's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. Each file contains the same information presented in the Reports section of this site and is provided to allow for more complex analyses and customized reporting of the data.

Use of these research files requires some expertise in data handling. Descriptions of the file formats and instructions on how to access the data are contained in a file you can access by clicking on the appropriate Folder icon on the left for help.

For PC users, each of the three file formats (Fixed-Length ASCII, Comma-Delimited and Access 2000 .mdb) are available in self-extracting archive formats.

For Mac users, zip files are available for the Fixed-Length ASCII and the Comma-Delimited formats. An Access 2000 .mdb file is not available for Mac users. Mac users wishing to use these files will need decompression software such as Stuffit Expander 7.5. (Stuffit Expander 7.5 is available at no cost from Aladdin Systems at www.aladdinsys.com/expander/)

To learn more about the file formats and to download one of these research files click on the appropriate Folder icon at the left.

In order to protect student confidentiality, no scores are reported for any group of 10 or fewer students.

The 2002 results posted on this web site are final.
