1. Identify the pool of schools eligible to be included in the Level 3 calculation.

2. Classify the pool of eligible schools into common grade spans.

3. For each school (and subgroup within the school), identify the core indicators that will be included in Level 3 calculations.

4. Within each grade span, for each school generate a percentile rank for each indicator. Then calculate average percentile rankings across all achievement and improvement indicators.

5. Classify schools in Level 3.

Low aggregate performance.

Focus Schools

low subgroup performance

persistently low graduation rates

Very low MCAS participation

6. Classify schools into Level 4

Achievement Indicators:

CPI for ELA, mathematics, and science

MCAS Warning/Failing Percent (ELA, mathematics, and/or science)

MCAS Advanced Percent (ELA, mathematics, and/or science)

Annual Dropout Rate

4-Year Cohort Graduation Rate

5-Year Cohort Graduation Rate

Improvement Indicators:

Median SGP for ELA and mathematics 1. ELA Achievement (CPI)

2. Mathematics Achievement (CPI)

3. Science Achievement (CPI)

4. ELA Growth/Improvement (Median SGP)

5. Mathematics Growth/Improvement (Median SGP)

6. Cohort Graduation Rate

7. Annual Dropout Rate Each indicator has an associated target. A district, school, or subgroup earns points based on the progress made by the group from one year to the next: 100 (Above Target), 75 (On Target), 50 (Improved Below Target), 25 (No Change), or 0 points (Declined). 1. Aggregate (all)

2. High Needs

3. Students with disabilities

4. English language learners or former ELL

5. Economically disadvantaged students

6. African American/Black students

7. Asian students

8. Hispanic/Latino students

9. White students

10. Multi-race Non-Hispanic/Latino students

11. Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students

12. Native American students Annual and Cumulative PPI Reported for: Is the school

Level 3? CPI: Halve the gap between 2011 CPI and CPI of 100 by 2017

Growth: Median SGP between 51-59 or 10-14 point improvement or decreased non-proficient % by 10 percent or more

Graduation rate: Steady progress toward goal of 90% for the 4-year rate or 95% for the 5-year rate by 2017

Dropout rate: Halve the gap between the annual dropout rate and 0% by 2017 Level 3 Determinations Progress and Performance Index Did the School Meet the Cumulative PPI Target (75)

Groups PPI Main Points Indicators Level 3 Main Points Schools classified into Level 3 if

they are among the lowest 20% relative to other schools in their grade span, or

one or more subgroups are among the lowest performing 20% of subgroups relative to all subgroups statewide, or

they have persistently low graduation rates (less than 60% for any subgroup over a four-year period), or

they have very low MCAS participation rates for any group (less than 90%)

Schools classified into Level 3 for low subgroup performance are called focus schools. Yes No Detailed Methodology Exit Criteria The table below (developed by GB DSAC) displays MA School Accountability information. The Accountability Level is indicated by the row. Schools can only be placed in the boxes without shading. MA School Accountability Levels Core Indicators Many schools will not have all seven. Extra Credit Indicators - for ELA, Math, Science Decrease % W/F by 10 percent or more

Increase % Adv by 10 percent or more +25 points Core Indicator Targets Level 3 Indicators - 4 years of data for each A school classified into Level 3 for low subgroup performance is eligible to exit Level 3 status if all of the following conditions are met

The subgroup that led to the school’s classification no longer meets the state’s criteria for classification into Level 3;

The subgroup that led to the school’s classification has an annual PPI of 75 or higher;

The school is not among the lowest 20 percent of schools in the aggregate; and

The MCAS participation rate for all groups in the school is 95 percent or greater.

A school classified into Level 3 for low aggregate performance is eligible to exit Level 3 status if all of the following conditions are met:

The school is not among the lowest 20 percent of schools in the aggregate;

No subgroup in the school meets the state’s criteria for classification into Level 3; and

The MCAS participation rate for all groups in the school is 95 percent or greater. Exiting Level 3 ELA CPI
