Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School

A-F School Grading Presentation

October 2, 2013


History of a to f school grading system

History of A to F School Grading System

  • Preliminary grades based on data from SY08-09 through SY10-11 were released in January, 2012

    • MLKE earned a C

  • Methodology changed before the first official scores were released in July, 2012 for data years SY09-10 through SY11-12

    • MLKE earned a C

  • At the elementary and middle school levels, the methodology stayed the same for the grades released in July of 2013

    • MLKE earned a C


Components of a to f grade

Components of A to F Grade

  • Current Standing

    • 40 points

  • School Growth

    • 10 points

  • Student Growth of Highest Performing Students (top 75% of students)

    • 20 points

  • Student Growth of Lowest Performing Students (bottom 25% of students)

    • 20 points

  • Opportunity to Learn

    • 10 points

  • Bonus Points

    • up to 5 points

Growth-related components equal approximately 65% of the school grade


Current standing 40 points total

Current Standing (40 points total)

  • 25 points – Based on percentage of students proficient

    • % proficient in reading x 12.5 possible points = ? points

    • % proficient in math x 12.5 possible points = ? points

  • 15 points – Based on “conditional status” Value Added Model

    • Conditional status – Was the percentage of students proficient higher or lower than predicted by the PED based on prior achievement?

Student scores can range from 0 to 80 on the SBA

Proficient = 40


School growth

School Growth

School growth compares the growth of this year’s students to PED predictions based on the performance of students in previous years.

Reading: Earned 4.4 out of 5 possible points

Math: Earned 1.9 out of 5 possible points

MLKE total points: 6.3 out of 10

State average: 5.8


Student growth

Student Growth

  • Did individual students grow more than the PED predicted through a Value Added Model from one grade level to the next?

  • Students are divided into two categories based on their score two years ago:

    • Top 75% of students within that grade level at that school

    • Bottom 25% of students within that grade level at that school

  • Students in the lowest 25% category are expected to “meaningfully close the achievement gap”.

  • Therefore, they must demonstrate more growth per year to earn the same number of points.


Growth of individual students as compared to ped predictions of student growth

Grew at rate PED expected


Growth of lowest performing students

Growth of lowest performing students

  • Although the lowest performing students grew more than predicted by the PED in both Reading and Math, the school only earned 5.1 out of 20 possible points.

  • MLKE grade for this category = F


Most elementary schools in the state have an f in this category

Opportunity to learn

Opportunity to Learn

  • Attendance

    • 5 possible points

    • Target is 95%

    • Actual rate was 96.2%

    • MLKE, therefore, earned 5.06 points

  • Opportunity to Learn Survey

    • Ten question survey given to students in grades 3-5 when they take the SBA

    • 5 possible points

    • MLKE earned 4.0 points

MLKE Rating = A

Bonus points

Bonus Points

  • Schools can submit “atypical” activities in the following areas:

    • Student engagement

    • Parental engagement

    • Extracurricular activities

    • Truancy improvement

  • A team of staff members at the PED rates the activities

  • MLKE earned 1.7 points

  • State average is 1.6 points


  • Mlke overall grade c

    MLKE Overall Grade = C

    Since approximately half the elementary schools in the state have a rating of D or F, then MLKE can be considered above average even with a rating of a C.
