A f detailed power point for s-boe 11.7.11

  1. 1. A-F Accountability Improving Transparency & Student Success November 7, 2011
  2. 2. The new A–F modelThe information in this presentationreflects the proposed rule approved by theIndiana State Board of Education on11.7.11 and is subject to change.
  3. 3. The new A–F model• Simplifies designations awarded to schools• Incorporates Indiana Growth Model into accountability (elementary & middle schools) – Focuses on closing achievement gaps – Focuses on all students, not just the “bubble kids”• Recognizes 4- and 5-year graduation rates (high schools)• Includes College & Career Readiness as a measure of school success (high schools)
  4. 4. Which Schools are Assessed?• Public schools (Traditional & Charter)• Accredited non-public schools• Nonpublic schools accredited by an entity recognized by the Indiana State Board of Education that participate in the voucher system
  5. 5. Growth & Improvement Targets• Preliminary scores may be raised or lowered based on schools meeting set targets• Targets are based on the three-year average growth or improvement of the top or bottom quartile of schools* *For AY 2011-12 the ECA targets are based on a two-year average and will be updated for AY 2012-13 based on a three-year average.
  6. 6. Two Models• Elementary & Middle School Model (E/MS)• High School Model (HS)*Schools that educate students in both E/MS and HS will be assessed using both models and receive a combined final grade that will incorporate the weighted enrollment from each model for the final calculation
  7. 7. Elementary & Middle School Model• Student Performance on ISTEP+, IMAST, and ISTAR, and• Student Academic Growth on ISTEP+ – High Growth of the • Bottom 25% of students • Top 75% of students – Low Growth of • 100% of students
  8. 8. Elementary & Middle School Model Calculating Grades• Separate grades are determined for English/Language Arts and Math• A final grade is determined by averaging the English/Language Arts and Math grades
  9. 9. Elementary & Middle School Model Calculating an English/Language Arts GradeExcluded in the calculations for performance & growth for E/LA are:• Students that were enrolled for less than 162 days• Students who are Limited English Proficient, tested as LAS Links Level 1 LEP and have NOT been Level 1 LEP for more than one year, and previously have NOT been classified as LAS Links Level 2 or higher.• Students who are Limited English Proficient, tested as LAS Links Level 2 LEP and have NOT been Level 2 LEP for more than one year.

  23. 23. High School Model• Schools are assessed in 4 areas: – English 10 ECA (30%)* – Algebra 1 ECA (30%)* – Graduation Rate (30%) – College & Career Readiness (10%)*• The scores of all assessed areas are weighted to determine a final grade. *The College & Career Readiness weight shall increase each year at least 5% and its increases will be offset by the equivalent decrease spread evenly over the English 10 and Algebra I ECAs weights.
  24. 24. High School Model• English 10 and Algebra 1 ECAs – Student Performance – Student Improvement • 8th grade to 10th grade • 10th grade to graduation• Graduation Rate – 4-year rate – 5-year rate

  36. 36. High School Model -Graduation Rate- Which Students Are Not Included?• Up to 3% of students with special needs who are on the Certificate of Completion track may be excluded from calculations• The total number of excluded students may not exceed 3% of the school’s total graduation cohort
  37. 37. High School Model Calculating a Graduation Rate ScoreStep 1: Calculate a preliminary score based on the percentage of graduates from the graduation cohort: Total # of Graduates in Cohort Total # Total # ( Students in Cohort - Students Excluded ) *A school must have a minimum of 10 students to be eligible for points in this area.
  38. 38. High School Model Calculating a Graduation Rate ScoreStep 2: Assign a preliminary score based on the percentage of graduates from the graduation cohort: 90.0 – 100.0% 4.00 points 85.0 – 89.9% 3.50 points 80.0 – 84.9% 3.00 points 75.0 – 79.9% 2.50 points 70.0 – 74.9% 2.00 points 65.0 – 69.9% 1.50 points 60.0 – 64.9% 1.00 points 0.00 – 59.9% 0.00 points

The target number is subject to change. A school must have a minimum of 10 students to be eligible for points in this area.
  40. 40. High School Model Calculating a Graduation Rate ScoreStep 4: The score may be lowered based on the percent of students who received General and waiver diplomas*• Lower the score by 1.00 points if ≥ 32.8% of four-year graduates receive General and waiver diplomas* *This will not be applied until AY 2014-15. The target number is subject to change. An Industry Certification target number will also be applied to this subgroup in AY 2014-15 as a mechanism for a school to not incur the 1.00 penalty. A school must have a minimum of 10 students to be eligible for points in this area.
  41. 41. High School Model Calculating a Graduation Rate ScoreStep 5: The score may be raised based on a school’s five-year graduation rate• Raise the score by 1.00 points if at least 13.2% of students for the cohort that did not graduate within four years do so in five years. *This will not be applied until AY 2014-15.

  46. 46. High School Model Calculating a Final GradeStep 2: Convert the score to a letter grade using the following scale to determine a FINAL High School grade: 3.51-4.00 points = A 3.00-3.50 points = B 2.00-2.99 points = C 1.00-1.99 points = D 0.00-0.99 points = F
  47. 47. Corporation Calculating Grades• Separate grades are determined for Elementary/ Middle Schools and High Schools (the same methodology is used for the corporation-level as is used for the school-level)• A corporation will receive one FINAL grade by adding the final two scores from both models (E/MS + HS) together after multiplying those scores by the enrollment percentages accordingly.
