This report provides a detailed summary of California Assessment Program (CAP) test results for the San Diego, California, City School District. The CAP achievement tests in reading, mathematics, written language, (written expression and spelling for twelfth graders) were administered in grades 3, 6, 8, and 12. A number of tables and appendices are used to present the test results, including results for each school in the district. Highlights of the test results are summarized. Third graders scored above statewide averages in all areas, improving for the third consecutive year. Sixth graders scored above state averages in written language and mathematics, and equaled the state average in reading. Language and mathematics scores increased, while reading scores declined. In grade 8, mathematics scores were well above the state average, and reading and language scores were slightly above average. Twelfth grade mathematics scores continued to be well above the state average. Reading, written expression, and spelling scores were above state averages; the previous year, they were not. (GDC)
