STAR Test Results Delayed Due To Security Breach

The results of the California STAR test are expected to be delayed about two weeks after it was discovered that several school sites may have breached standardized testing protocol. Over 400 images related to the test were found online, including images of actual test questions.

This breach may have significant impacts on the schools were the security breaches occurred, including a school not receiving Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and/or Academic Performance Index (API) results which may in turn affect funding. It is important that all school site test administrators/proctors as well as students take the testing procedures seriously. Failure to do so could result in serious penalties that affect the school as a whole.
