Research Files

Downloading STAR 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.

In order to protect student confidentiality, no scores are reported (or included in the research files) for any group of 10 or fewer students.

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 the Research File Download Instructions and Formats (File Layouts) section.

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.
