## Presentation Transcript

### A+ :

A+ School Grade State Measurement 1

### What are the components of A+? :

What are the components of A+? Standard Curriculum Students PLUS: Gifted Speech Impaired Hospital/Homebound All ELL EXCEPT LY under 2 Years 2

### Slide 3:

Count for Standard Curriculum From Page 1 of IEP

### Slide 4:

Students MUST have a score from the previous year in order for Learning Gains to be measured! 4

### Slide 5:

5 Students MUST have a score from the previous year in order to be part of the Lowest 25%! Only students in Levels 1, 2, and 3 can be in the Lowest 25%

6

### Slide 7:

Points needed to show Statistically Significant Improvement from previous year. Calculations done by DREA. Opportunity Gap (based on SAR report) Calculations done by DREA. School Self Selected Targets 7

New Feature 9

### AYP :

AYP Adequate Yearly Progress Federal Measure 10

### Subgroups :

Subgroups Total White Black Hispanic Asian American Indian Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) English Language Learners (ELL) INCLUDES LY & LF Students with Disabilities (SWD) INCLUDES ALL IEPS EXCEPT GIFTED One student can potentially be in up to FIVE categories at once 11

### Which subgroups count for your school? :

Which subgroups count for your school? In order for a subgroup to count it must meet the following criteria: Have 100 students in it OR Have 30 students in it, which make up more than 15% of the total 12

### Slide 13:

Example 1: School has 250 students in its tested population. 15% of 250 = 37.5 Subgroup must have MORE THAN 15%, so there needs to be at least 38 students in the subgroup for it to count. Example 2: School has 1150 students in its tested population. 15% of 1150 = 172.5. If a subgroup has 100 or more students in it, it automatically counts. SO, in this school, we know that no subgroup with less than 100 students will count.

### Safe Harbor: “Safety Net” #110% Reduction in NON-Proficient population from the previous year :

Safe Harbor: “Safety Net” #110% Reduction in NON-Proficient population from the previous year PROFICIENT FY09: 38% FY10 Goal: 45% NON-PROFICIENT 62% -7 % (-10%) __________________ 55% 14

### Growth Model: “Safety Net #2”% students ON TRACK to being Proficient :

Growth Model: “Safety Net #2”% students ON TRACK to being Proficient Tracks where the student starts and how many points the student needs to increase each year in order to be proficient in 3 years. Jimmy is in 3rd grade and scored 1000 (Level 1) on the FCAT Reading. In 3 years, he will be in 6th grade. A level 3 in 6th grade starts at 1622. 1622-1000 = 622. Jimmy needs to pick up an additional 622 points in the next 3 years to be proficient by 6th grade. Growth Model takes that # and divides it by 3 (the # of years from now until 6th grade). 622/3= ~208. If Jimmy gains at least 208 points each year until 6th grade, he is considered ON TRACK to being proficient. 15

### Slide 16:

Which subgroups counted for this school?

### Slide 19:

AYP Counts Participation=FTE 3 Proficiency=FTEs 2 AND 3

### Slide 20:

Subgroup Did NOT Count for Math Subgroup Counted for Reading

### Slide 21:

If a subgroup did not count in 2009, there is NO SAFE HARBOR OPTION in 2010. Goals must be met through either Proficiency or the Growth Model.

### Slide 22:

If a subgroup met its goals through proficiency, EDW will not calculate Safe Harbor. However, SH may still be an option! 100%-66%=34% (If 66% were Proficient, then 34% weren’t.) 34%-4% (10%)= 30%. SH Goal: Reduce NP to 30%; therefore, to meet goal, 70% need to be Proficient, vs. 72% , which is the Proficiency Target.

### Slide 23:

Use the Prof Target Count and Safe Harbor Count columns to figure out how many additional students you need to meet your goals. Remember: You can make AYP by getting a YES through Proficiency OR Safe Harbor OR Growth Model. Remember: Writing (and Graduation) goals must be met before Safe Harbor or Growth Model can be used!

### Identifying the students :

Identifying the students Diagnostic Reading Gains (0095) Diagnostic Math Gains (0096)

### Slide 25:

I need 18 SWD students. I will try to find SWD students who are also FRL and ELL to get the most “bang for my buck.”

### Slide 26:

Start with the students who were proficient on the last FCAT in order to do initial search for best bet students. Start with the subgroup in which there is the greatest shortage

### Slide 28:

From this report: 12/18 SWD 11/12 FRL 3/2 ELL 12/14 Total All ESE students; All Proficient on Last FCAT; All Dropped One or More Levels

### Slide 29:

You also might need to look at students’ testing histories (0125). All of these students are testing at a 1 or 2 on Diags.

### Don’t forget about the students who are testing proficient for the first time on the Diagnostics! :

Don’t forget about the students who are testing proficient for the first time on the Diagnostics! They may need some enrichment to stay there!

### Slide 31:

A+: Counts for Learning Gains for Reading and Math, and Lowest 25% Math Gains. Does NOT count for High Standards, because he’s SLD, so does not count for Reading, Math, Science, or Writing Proficiency. AYP: Counts for Total, FRL, Hispanic, and SWD for Reading, Math, and Writing (8th Grader).

### Slide 32:

What does this student count for in A+? Lowest 25% Math Gains Regular Learning Gains **Was retained last year, so must go up a level to make gains!!** High Standards **Is in the denominator for being proficient!** What does this student count for in AYP? FRL Black Total
