    There are several types of academic reports that have been generated by the State Department of Education (SDE) and the governor's Office of Accountability in the last few years for school-level and district-level accountability. Prior to 2012, the SDE generated report cards using a federally approved Academic Performance Index (API). In 2012, the department began generating "A-F" report cards, which have been criticized by a variety of university researchers and state leaders.
