Along with many other independent schools, Wilshire Private School does not take the usual state mandated standardized tests, opting instead for the CTP IV-ERB. The ERB is a much more rigorous standardized test that measures Wilshire Private School against other independent schools in the nation. This higher level of measurement ensures that WPS students are measured against the achievement of other independent school students. Consequently, the ERB is a much more challenging exam and a more accurate measurement of students’ skills. General scores are available in the main office to be used as indicators of the high quality of WPS students.

California Progress Reporting (APR) California Progress Reporting (APR) takes into account a school’s state Academic Performance Index (API) in addition to federal measures of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and Program Involvement (PI). Together, these reports help ensure compliance with state and federal guidelines.
Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) measures achievement on the California Achievement test, given each year to students in grades 2-11. These tests assess whether a school is meeting state educational goals and measures progress from year to year.
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a statewide accountability system mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 which requires each state to ensure that all schools and districts make Adequate Yearly Progress.
