Where did this chart come from?  Did you put it together?  (I'm not questioning the data - just wondering where this particular formatting came from as I haven't seen it organized in this fashion before.)

Gambier Gal,

If I were to take all the numbers given here, and give it the same value as: 4 points for an A, 3points for a B, 2points for a C, 1 point for a D, and 0 points for an F= 27points divided into 16 categories would = 1.68. ( 4F=0, 6D=6, 1 C=2, 1B=3, 4A=16) Are we happy with the outcome?  People, we have been having a horrible decline in Academics during the last 10 years.  Closing the gap is still an F, and K-3 literacy which the Corrections Department looks to in order to budget for new prisons is a D.  Mt Healthy with new buildings even got an F on that.

New Buildings obviously did not help!

37 years of payments= $8,917 for a $100,000.00 Home.  

For GG, one home, one business, and one rental property = $53,280.00 in 37 years.  (120 a month=1,440 a year= 53,280 in 37 years)  WOW!

How about the widow or widower in our community with one retirement check of Social Security?

DARN IT WW, STOP TRYING TO MAKE A SILK PURSE OUT OF A SOW'S EAR!

To fully understand this you have to know what each score measures, and means----

Indicator Met - This is the percentage student who passed the AIR Test, and the Percent of test populations who met the target.   The target used to be 75% when it was the old state proficiency test.  Now you are considered having Met the Indicator if the percentage of students who passed is above the state average.  So in essence the target is always changing. 

Performance Index - Is points given on the report card for the number of students who test scores fall in the following categories - Advance, Accelerated, Proficient, Basic and Limited.    You get points for Advance and Accelerated, and lose points for Basic and Limited.  I personally believe that a schools demographics have a large influence on this. 

Graduation Rate - self- explanatory

Value  Added - This goes all they way back to "No Child Left Behind" where the goal was that all students would pass reading and math tests.  Again this is a moving target it started at 75% and I believe it is now 92%.  That means that all students  in the following sub-groups who are African American, Economically Disadvantage, on an IEP, ESL.... ect have to met the target.  Again it's another moving target.

The next set of scores, AMO is based on student growth...When a student takes the test in 3rd grade the score they get is linked to a percentile ranking.  They are ranked against all other 3rd graders in the state.  A student is considered to show growth if they keep or grow that percentile ranking.  So if a 3rd grader takes the test and scores at the 50th percentile, they have to keep scoring at the 50th percentile or above. 

     * For gifted if a student scores in the 99th percentile they have to keep scoring at the 99th percentile to be considered as a kids who showed growth.  This is one of the harderst areas for a district to show growth.

     *  For lowest 20th percent - the state decided that they are going to track the scores of our lowest scoring students.  This can include students with multiple disabilities and/or a intellectual disability.

    *  SWD - Students with Disabilities:  Again this included all students who has an IEP.  When a student have more than 1 disability - for Example the student is ADHD with a Learning disability and receives services for Speech and Language and occupational therapy, there growth may not be measurable by just a test score.

*  AMO - this is again tracking student in the different sub-groups, and whether or not they showed growth.  So something to think about a minority student who is economically disadvantage, and on an IEP, score will count 3 separate times in this rating.

K-3 Literacy - this is the measure of the number of student who passed the 3rd grade reading.  There is about 10-12 different ways that can exempt a student from the 3rd grade guarantee consequences.

 

The crazy part about the data in a school report card is that it reports the same data multiple ways.  So an under performing school ends up a with a really negative reports.  The other thing is that the data in the report card is for the most part no longer valid to a district, as the kids are constantly changing. 

 

Hopefully I brought meaning to understanding what this all means.

I think the whole goal of the state report card is just to slap F grades on every  public school to make the case for more money for charter schools and it is disgusting.   What is even more hilarious is that the state superintendent is out there saying oh don't pay attention to these grades they don't mean much

..if they don't mean much why are we releasing them in the first place?
