Below are links to both the original data files (at the California Dept of Education or from the archive here) and the normalized
data files on which this site is based. The normalized data files are easier to work with as we have already done the work of
collecting the original data files over the years and combining them into one large database with a single set of entities (Counties,
Districts, Schools, Tests and Subgroups).
