Transcript of Copy of How Are Schools Rated These Days?

We met standard, but what does that mean?
State Accountability Index System
2014-2015 Accountability Year

Performance Index Overview
The state accountability framework of
four Performance Indices
includes a broad set of measures that provide a comprehensive evaluation of districts and campuses.

Index 1
Index 1: Student Achievement measures campus and district performance based on satisfactory student achievement combined over
all subjects for all students.

Index 2
Index 2: The STAAR progress measure provides information about the amount of improvement or growth that a student has made from year to year. For STAAR, progress is measured as a student’s gain
score, the difference between the score a student achieved in the prior year and the score a student achieved in the current year. Individual student progress is then categorized as Did Not Meet, Met, or Exceeded.

Index 3
Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps- emphasizes the academic achievement of
economically disadvantaged
students and the
2 lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups

All Student Levels
All Tests, All Subjects
Student Counts 1 Time per subject
% of Students Meeting Standard (Phase 1, Level II)

Ten Student Groups Evaluated:
All Students
English language learners (ELLs)
Students with Disabilities
African American
American Indian
Pacific Islander
Two or More Races

All Subjects
Econ. Disadvantaged, Up to 2 Lowest Performing Race/Eth Group

Two Components:
Phase 1, Level II
Level III Advanced

Index 4
Index 4: Postsecondary Readiness Emphasizes the role of elementary and middle schools in
preparing students for the high school,
and the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs, or the military.

A focus on every kid.
Growth mindset at the secondary level!
"Bubble kids" are no longer the main topic of accountability.
Not easy for stakeholders to understand

STAAR and STAAR Modified or EOC Substitute Assessments

Performance Standard
Meeting Postsecondary Readiness standard (Final Level II or above or equivalency standard) on two or more subjects

Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies

With the new accountability system, thinking different will be required.

Index 1 observations

This index is very global.
Focuses on met/did not meet standard...like the old system.
Of all test given, how many met standard?

Based on our Index 1 score, what do you notice?
What recommendations would you make?
Index 2 Observations:
Not based on passing the test! A student can fail and still earn points.
Students who meet progress earn 1 point.
Students who exceed progress earn 2 points.

Based on our Index 2, what do you notice?
What recommendations do you have?
Index 3 Observations:

Focus on our 2 lowest performing groups and the economically disadvantaged.
Addresses the question- Are we meeting the needs of all of our students?

What do you notice about our index 3 data?
What recommendations do you have?
Index 4 Observations:

Are we getting kids ready for the next step?

What do you notice about our Index 4 score?
What recommendations do you have?
