API Scores Released For Oklahoma Schools

Posted:

OKLAHOMA - The yearly Academic Performance Index (API)  for Oklahoma schools has been released. The purpose is to measure the success and growth in schools and districts across the state.

The index uses several things to calculate a score from 0 to 1500 - with 1500 being the best score. According to the State Education web site, "Oklahoma's API was created in law to measure performance and progress of a school or district based on several factors."

Those factors include the Oklahoma School Testing Program, school completion - involving attendance, dropout and graduate rates. It also factors in academic excellence, reviewing ACT scores and participation, Advanced Placement credit and college remediation rates in reading and mathematics.
