CST Proficiency Charting Tool
The following Excel files can be downloaded and used to generate CST proficiency charts for the test scores of students in your school or district. State level ELA scores have been entered into the files. You will need to enter the data from your school or district. You can obtain the data from the CDE web site, http://star.cde.ca.gov/, which will direct you to the most recent STAR results. It may be useful to generate charts for multiple years to draw comparisons."

Scroll down to the bottom of this page for links to a series of brief movies showing how to use these Excels files to create charts. These Excel files require macros to be enabled in order to function, and some versions of MS Office (Office 2008 for Macs) won't be able to run them for this reason. Contact Alan Wood at (707) 287-0054 or email@example.com if you have questions.
