PVAAS IS:
  • Another tool we can use to look at our school data
  • A way to determine if students made one year’s worth of growth
  • When combined with PSSA scores, we get a clearer picture of school achievement
pvaas is not
PVAAS is NOT:
  • Another Test; the data is taken from the PSSA
  • A measure for teacher accountability
things to keep in mind
Things to Keep in Mind
  • PVAAS does not take into account a student’s starting point. It looks at growth over a year.
  • PVAAS measures growth, not AYP level
  • A Scatter Plot graph combines both

Value-added Measure of Cohort Growth
  • Comparison to a State Growth Standard
  • The Growth Standard specifies the minimal designated academic gain from grade to grade for a cohort of students.
  • The use of a Growth Standard creates the possibility that ALL schools can demonstrate appropriate growth.

PVAAS School Report

This is an example of a School Value Added Report.

  • It shows us growth by grade level.
  • We can also use the chart at the bottom of the page to see growth of the same cohort over time.

PVAAS Performance Diagnostic Report

This chart is an example of a school performance diagnostic report

  • We can see the growth for groups of students
  • The green line is at zero. This is the growth line.
  • Everything at or above the line shows that the students have made one year’s worth of growth.
  • Everything below the green growth line shows that the students slipped from last year. (They did not remain in the same position as last year)

  • Under Reports, select Student Search
  • Restrict Search by Grade: 8 (this is the grade last tested)
  • Restrict Search by Projected Proficiency Level: Test-PSSA,

Restrict by Subject (level): 11th Math Proficient, 0% to 100%
