Preliminary School Report Card Data Released

Some preliminary school report card data was released by the Ohio State Department of Education today. Due to the investigation as to whether or not some schools falsified school records, the pdf report cards are not out yet. The Excellent to Failing assignments have not been made in this data.

This data contains the following fields, as described by NPR:

What the columns mean:

2011-12 Indicators Met: Ohio uses a group of 26 measures, or indicators, as an initial step in determining a school or district’s state grade.The indicators include passing rates on state standardized tests for each grade level and subject, attendance rates and graduation rates. Each grade level and subject (e.g., math, reading, writing, science, social studies) counts as a separate indicator. Graduation and attendance rates are two separate indicators. In elementary and middle schools and for the 10th grade Ohio Graduation Test, at least 75 percent of students taking each state test must pass in order to “meet” the indicator. The Ohio Department of Education has not yet released 2011-12 school attendance rates.

2010-11 Indicators Met: Same as above, except that the full set of 26 indicators was released last year.

2011-12 AYP: “Adequate Yearly Progress,” or AYP,is a measure of whether a school is making progress towards the goals set under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. It is based on standardized test performance, attendance rates and graduation rates.

2011-12 Value-Added: Valued-added is a statistical measure that reflects whether students are making a full year of progress in a year of school, regardless of their levels at the start of the year. Above” means that students in the district showed more than a year’s worth of academic achievement last year. “Below” means students showed less than a year’s worth of achievement, and “Met” means they showed one year of progress.

2010-11 Rating: This is the overall grade awarded to a school. It is based on standardized test performance, value-added, attendance and graduation rates and AYP. The ratings range from A+ (formally “Excellent With Distinction”) to F (“Academic Emergency”). In The preliminary 2011-12 data does not include state grades.
