  1. Understanding our 2012 High School Grade Spruce Creek High

  2. 2011-2012 School Grades • Many changes! • Students who counted • Florida Alternate Assessment • Algebra EOC • Writing cut score • No Science score for high school • No lower quartile penalty & lower quartile definition • Learning Gain calculations • Change in how graduation was calculated • Shift in point distributions Spruce Creek High

  3. High School Grading is Unique • Two major sections • Assessment • FCAT Reading • FCAT Writing • Algebra EOC • Florida Alternate Assessment (reading, writing, math and science) • Non-Assessment Components • Acceleration • Graduation • College Readiness Spruce Creek High

  4. How is this grade calculated? Spruce Creek High

  5. Assessment Components Spruce Creek High

  6. Who counts? • Students enrolled in the same school for full academic year (Oct. & Feb. FTE count) • ELL students who have one year or more of instruction in the U.S. • All students classified as a “student with disability” (SWD, or ESE) • Hospital/Homebound are credited back to zoned school Spruce Creek High

  7. Reading Performance Numerator: Students scoring 3 or higher on FCAT or 4 or higher on FAA Denominator: All students taking the FCAT or FAA with a valid score reported Spruce Creek High

  8. Our NumbersReading Performance 2012 Numerator: 945 = 72% 2012 Denominator: 1328 2011 Numerator: 831 = 65% 2011 Denominator: 1287 Spruce Creek High

  9. Math Performance Numerator: Students scoring 3 or higher on Algebra EOC or 4 or higher on FAA Denominator: All students taking the Algebra EOC or FAA with a valid score reported Students who earned a passing EOC score in middle school will also count in their high school numerator and denominator their 9th grade year. Spruce Creek High

  10. Our NumbersMath Performance 2012 Numerator: 401 = 70% 2012 Denominator: 575 2011 Numerator: 541 = 87% 2011 Denominator: 622 Spruce Creek High

  11. Reading Learning Gains Numerator: Students making a learning gain by maintaining a 3, 4 or 5 or moving up one level or making more than one year’s growth in the Level 1 or 2 category Denominator: All students taking the FCAT or FAA with a valid score reported Spruce Creek High

  12. Our NumbersReading Learning Gains 2012 Numerator: 861.3 = 69% 2012 Denominator: 1256 2011 Numerator: 810 = 59% 2011 Denominator: 1365 Spruce Creek High

  13. Math Learning Gains Numerator: Students making a learning gain by maintaining a 3, 4 or 5 or moving up one level or making more than one year’s growth in the Level 1 or 2 category Denominator: All students taking the EOC or FAA with a valid score reported A student who increases their EOC score to a 4 is given an 1.1 weighting and an increase to a 5 is given a 1.2 weighting in the numerator Spruce Creek High

  14. EOC vs. FCAT for gains • Most students who take the Algebra EOC in high school have an 8th grade math score. • The learning gains are calculated by converting both the 9th grade Algebra score and the 8th grade FCAT score to a common scale (T-scores). • Any increase in T score is counted as learning gain. Spruce Creek High

  15. Extra Weightings for Learning Gains • A student who increases their FCAT/EOC score to a 4 is given an 1.1 weighting • A student who increases their FCAT/EOC score to a 5 is given a 1.2 weighting in the numerator • A Level 1 or 2 student who increase their score by more than 33% of what is required for FCAT/EOC or FAA gains is given a 1.1 weighting in the numerator Spruce Creek High

  16. Our NumbersMath Learning Gains 2012 Numerator: 163.1 = 65% 2012 Denominator: 249 2011 Numerator: 542 = 80% 2011 Denominator: 676 Spruce Creek High

  17. Lower Quartile Learning Gains Numerator: Students in denominator who make a learning gain Denominator: Students who meet criteria to be included in school grade AND have a prior year and current year FCAT/EOC score AND are ranked in the lowest 25% based on prior year score AND have a 1 or 2 on that prior year score Spruce Creek High

  18. Lower Quartile • There is separate lower quartile for reading and for math • For 2011-2012 no school was penalized for insufficient progress of lower quartile – this will be reinstated next year. Spruce Creek High

  19. Our Numbers – ReadingLower Quartile Learning Gains 2012 Numerator: 215.5 = 63% 2012 Denominator: 344 2011 Numerator: 142 = 40% 2011 Denominator: 352 Spruce Creek High

  21. Writing Performance Numerator: Students scoring 3 or higher on FCAT or 4 or higher on FAA Denominator: All students taking the FCAT or FAA with a valid score reported Spruce Creek High

  22. Our NumbersWriting Performance 2012 Numerator: 614 = 89% 2012 Denominator: 687 2011 Numerator: 514 = 82% 2011 Denominator: 625 Spruce Creek High

  23. What to do about science?? • No FCAT science in 2012 • Biology was a baseline – no cut score, no proficiency • No science score • Each assessment component was multiplied by 1.143 to keep the total points at 800 for this year Spruce Creek High

  24. Bonus Points • Includes a different group of students • Only standard curriculum students, speech impaired, gifted, and hospital-homebound • ELL students who have been in an ESOL program for more than 2 years • 10 points are awarded if 50% or more of the students who retake an FCAT or EOC earn a passing score. Spruce Creek High

  25. Bonus Numerator: students in the denominator who earning a passing FCAT or EOC score on the retake Denominator: Must be enrolled in the same school for two consecutive years (for reading), who have not met graduation requirements for Reading and /or EOC assessments, but have attempted, as a 9th or 10th grader Spruce Creek High

  26. Our Numbers - Reading 2012 Numerator: 85 = 57% 2012 Denominator: 149 2011 Numerator: 74 = 60% 2011 Denominator: 123 Spruce Creek High

  43. Our Points Spruce Creek High

  44. Postsecondary Readiness Numerator: The number students scoring at “ready” levels on the ACT or SAT or PERT Denominator: The number of all on-time graduates This is calculated separately for both Reading and Math For students who take more than one of the tests in the numerator, the highest score is taken Spruce Creek High

  45. Our Numbers – ReadingPostsecondary Readiness 2012 Numerator: 437 = 75% 2012 Denominator: 583 2011 Numerator: 393 = 74% 2011 Denominator: 533 Spruce Creek High

  47. Our Points Spruce Creek High

  48. The “A” Threshold If a school earns enough points to be an “A”, the at-Risk Graduation must be at 65% Or If between 55% and 65% the rate must increase by 1% from last year Or If less than 55% the rate must increase by 5% from last year Spruce Creek High

  49. Our Threshold…. Our total points earned = 1209 Our at-risk graduation rate = 56% Our change in rate from last year = +5% Conclusion: We earned enough points to be an “A”. Our at-risk graduation rate was 56% and increased 5% from last year, therefore we were not penalized. Spruce Creek High
