Sample CPI Calculation assessing the progress of our climb to higher levels of student achievement.
Multiply the number of points by the number of students at each performance level,
then divide the total number of points by the total number of students
100 – 2010 CPI
Number of remaining years until the year 2014 (4)
An improvement target for a given subject is calculated by subtracting the district, school, or group’s 2010 (baseline) CPI from 100 (the ultimate CPI goal), and dividing the difference by the number of remaining years until the year 2014, including the current year. For 2011 that number is 4.
The improvement target is expressed as a range.
An “error band” surrounds the target number.
Error bands range from 2.5 to 4.5, depending on size of group; 2.5 is typical.
Met NCLB Goal Improved with a margin of error
of 100 percent proficiency
Above Target Improved above target range
On Target Improved within target range
Improved Below Target Improve above 2010 CPI (the baseline) but below the target range
No Change Gain was equivalent to baseline plus or minus the target range
Declined Gain was below the baseline and below the target range
State Target = 95.1
State Target = 92.2
