  • Slide 1
  • 1 Prepared by: Research Services and Student Assessment & School Performance School Accountability in Florida: Grading Schools and Measuring Adequate Yearly Progress
  • Slide 2
  • 2 Two Accountability Systems School Grades are a component of Floridas A++ Plan School Grades are a component of Floridas A++ Plan Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a component of the Federal No Child Left Behind legislation Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a component of the Federal No Child Left Behind legislation
  • Slide 3
  • 3 School Grades Schools are graded by earning points based on the percentage of students who reach specific criteria in each of 8 measures. Level 3 and above in reading (grades 3-10) Level 3 and above in math (grades 3-10) Essay Level 3.5 and above in writing (grades 4, 8, and 10) Level 3 and above in science (grades 5, 8, and 11) First four components: Percent Achieving High Standards
  • Slide 4
  • 4 School Grades Learning gains in reading (grades 3-10) Learning gains in math (grades 3-10) Learning gains of lowest 25% in reading (grades 3-10) Learning gains of lowest 25% in math (grades 3-10) Retained 3rd graders & students in grades 4-10 with FCAT scores for two consecutive years are included in learning gains computations, regardless of LEP or ESE status. Next four components: Learning Gains
  • Slide 5
  • 5 How Are Learning Gains Defined? Improving from one FCAT Achievement Level to the next Level (example: Level 3 to Level 4) Improving from one FCAT Achievement Level to the next Level (example: Level 3 to Level 4) Maintaining FCAT Achievement Level within Levels 3, 4, or 5 Maintaining FCAT Achievement Level within Levels 3, 4, or 5 Remaining within FCAT Levels 1 or 2 and achieving more than one years growth on the FCAT developmental scale Remaining within FCAT Levels 1 or 2 and achieving more than one years growth on the FCAT developmental scale

  • 7 Learning Gains Students who drop a level (Level 4 to 3 or Level 5 to 4) are not be counted as learning gains Students who drop a level (Level 4 to 3 or Level 5 to 4) are not be counted as learning gains Retained students who are Level 1 or Level 2 must improve at least one level in order to be counted as making learning gains Retained students who are Level 1 or Level 2 must improve at least one level in order to be counted as making learning gains

  • 8 Writing Achievement Levels were provided for first time in 2006-07. Achievement Levels were provided for first time in 2006-07. As of now, achievement levels will not be incorporated into the grade computation for 2007-08. As of now, achievement levels will not be incorporated into the grade computation for 2007-08. If a school tests 30 or fewer students in Writing or does not have grade 4, 8, or 10, the District average score for Writing is substituted. This includes schools who do not serve one or more of the tested grade levels. If a school tests 30 or fewer students in Writing or does not have grade 4, 8, or 10, the District average score for Writing is substituted. This includes schools who do not serve one or more of the tested grade levels.

Science Achievement Levels were incorporated in school grades for first time in 2006-07. Science Achievement Levels were incorporated in school grades for first time in 2006-07. If a school tests 30 or fewer students in Science or does not have grade 5, 8, or 11, the District average score for Science is substituted. This includes schools who do not serve one or more of the tested grade levels. If a school tests 30 or fewer students in Science or does not have grade 5, 8, or 11, the District average score for Science is substituted.

  • 12 Adequate Progress At least 50% of students in the bottom 25% must demonstrate learning gains in reading and math A Schools Must register adequate progress in the current school year Must register adequate progress in the current school year B and C Schools Must register adequate progress in the current or prior school year Must register adequate progress in the current or prior school year Failure to make Adequate Progress for two consecutive years results in reduction of letter grade, regardless of number of points earned.
  • Slide 13
  • 13 Bonus Points (High Schools) High Schools are eligible for 10 bonus points added to their total school grade points, if at least half the 11th and 12th grade students in the school retaking the FCAT meet the graduation requirement (score of 300). High Schools are eligible for 10 bonus points added to their total school grade points, if at least half the 11th and 12th grade students in the school retaking the FCAT meet the graduation requirement (score of 300).

  • 15 Who Counts for School Grades? Students enrolled during the October and February FTE surveys Students enrolled during the October and February FTE surveys Included for all components: Included for all components: Standard Curriculum Students ESE: Gifted, Hospital/Homebound, Speech Impaired LEP: Enrolled in a ESOL program for more than 2 years prior to testing Other ESE and LEP categories included in percent tested and learning gains. Other ESE and LEP categories included in percent tested and learning gains.

Subgroup Participation rates, Writing, and Graduation requirements met. Subgroup Participation rates, Writing, and Graduation requirements met. Decrease of at least 10% in the percent of non-proficient students. Decrease of at least 10% in the percent of non-proficient students. A school has 50% of a subgroup level 1 or 2 in 2007-08. If that school had 55% or more in levels 1 and 2 during 2006-07, that school would make Safe Harbor for that subgroup and subject.

  • 26 Correlation Between School Grades and AYP School Grades and AYP are based on separate computational methods. School Grades and AYP are based on separate computational methods. In prior years, Provisional AYP status was awarded to schools that did not meet AYP criteria, but earned an A or B designation. These schools still have same consequences as schools that do not meet AYP. In prior years, Provisional AYP status was awarded to schools that did not meet AYP criteria, but earned an A or B designation. These schools still have same consequences as schools that do not meet AYP. D or F schools cannot make AYP, even if all AYP criteria are met. D or F schools cannot make AYP, even if all AYP criteria are met.
