Spring 1998 Research Files
I'm Sharpy--Do you have a question? 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 Research File Help icon or the Pencil icon for help. Each of the three file formats (fixed length ASCII, tab-delimited, and dBASE IV .dbf) is available in a Windows .zip and in a Macintosh .sit version. To download one of these research files click on the appropriate Folder icon at the left.

The Access 97 database file is packaged in a self-extracting file, and is available for the Windows platform only. This database can also be used with Access 2000. To download the Access database, click on the appropriately labeled Folder icon to the left. This will take you to a page with the options of downloading the database in its entirety, or in multiple smaller parts for easier downloading.

To view results directly, click on the Reports icon at the top of the screen.

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

The results posted at this Web site are based on data provided by Harcourt Brace Educational Measurement (Stanford 9 and STAR Augmentation) and CTB/McGraw-Hill (SABE/2) under contract with California school districts.
