New on Ed-Data

2017-18 teacher salary data now available! Plus 2016-17 data for the ACT and AP tests. And check out our unique CAASPP graphs for four years of results from the state's standardized math and English tests.


What's new:

2017-18 Teacher salary data

At the district level, visit the Teacher Salary section under the Staff tab for details about the district's teacher salary schedule, including highest and lowest salaries offered, changes over time, benefits, and more.

Teacher salary data are available only at the district level. In the state profile you can find a graph with statewide averages. Districts provide teacher salary data to the state through the J-90 form. The J-90 form is optional, so these data are not available for all districts, but the 2017-18 data encompasses information from 83.43 percent of school districts and county offices of education, representing 96.95 percent of the state's non-charter Average Daily Attendance. For more information and definitions, see the J-90 summary on the CDE's website. 

Updated ACT and AP test data

Now find 2016-17 data for the ACT and AP tests in the College and Career Readiness section of the student tab. (The state has not yet released 2017-18 data for these exams.) Because of changes to the SAT test, 2016-17 SAT data cannot be added to our existing graphs, so we are working to create new graphs for SAT data. In the meantime you can find 2016-17 SAT data on the state's DataQuest website


Also available on Ed-Data: 

2018 CAASPP Smarter Balanced test results

Ed-Data now displays student performance on the state's standardized math and English language arts/literacy tests over the past four years for schools, districts, counties and the state as a whole. You can view data by proficiency level, grade, gender, race/ethnicity and for English learners, students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students, and migrant students.

2016-17 physical fitness test results

Visit the student performance section of a school, district, county, or the state profile for updated results from the state's physical fitness tests. The tests, which are administered in grades 5, 7 and 9, show the percent of students in the "healthy fitness zone" on measures such as aerobic capacity and upper body strength, as well as the percent of students at health risk.

Have you tried the comparison tools? 

Our comparison functionality at the district and school levels allows you to: 

  • Compare schools or districts
  • Select a specific year for comparisons and toggle between years as desired
  • Select the data elements to be included in the comparison results from a list of all fields or by data category (e.g., summary, student demographic, performance, suspensions/expulsions, finance)
  • Add in corresponding state or county data for elements you’ve added
  • Filter results using criteria you select (e.g., show districts matching a specific data range such as enrollment between 1-500 students, or show only districts or schools within specific counties)
  • Sort each data element from high to low or low to high, or sort districts/schools alphabetically
  • Add specific schools or districts into the comparison (e.g., add a high-performing district or a neighboring district or school regardless of the other selection criteria used)
  • Export results to Excel
  • Eliminate a data element from results if you don’t need it
  • “Pin” one or more districts or schools so that they are always displayed in the left-most columns of the results regardless of any sorting performed by the user – allowing you to compare districts/schools of interest with the highest or lowest values in each field

For a step-by-step “how to” directions on using the comparisons, view one of our online tutorials or see our How to Create District or School Comparisons article. Or start making your own comparisons: Compare Schools or Compare Districts


Filter the data by race/ethnicity in comparisons

The comparisons tools now include the ability to view and filter cohort graduates and dropouts data by race/ethnicity. To easily identify the schools and districts with the highest/lowest graduation rates for a specific group of students, you can generate a list of schools or districts based on the graduations rates of a subgroup of students, and more!

What's Next

We are working to update the site with 2017-18 staffing data and the latest data on graduation and dropout rates as well as graduates meeting UC/CSU entrance requirements. We expect to receive 2017-18 financial reports for school districts in March.
