Improving Your CTE Report Card Data Erica Weaston Autumn 2013
Overview • “Easy” ways to improve your data • Concentrator data • Technical Skill Attainment • Dual Enrollment • Placement • Industry Credentials • Other Upcoming Changes • Questions?
Concentrators drive everything! • Report during Yearend (N) when student is in second half of the program • Report the correct program of concentration • Must align to approved subject code in which the student is enrolled • Assessment must align to program • See Program Matrix and Assessment Matrix
Achievement Component Measure: Technical Skill Attainment Data: FY12 Yearend (N) Technical Assessments FY13 March (D) Industry Assessments Potential FY14 change: Grading Technical Skill Attainment
Technical Skill Data • Test all students • Includes students with disabilities • Jamie.Nash@education.ohio.gov • Report test data during Yearend (N) for Webxam tests • Report test data during Yearend (N) OR March (D) for Industry Assessments • Student is included in the calculation when they leave school • Highest test score is used for accountability • Changes expected in FY14N assessment records • Make sure test is aligned to the program of concentration
Assessment Alignment To find which assessment aligns with each CTE program… Search “technical assessment matrix” on the ODE website
Prepared for Success Component Measure: Dual Enrollment Data: FY12 Completion of a Course Qualifying for Postsecondary Credit Potential FY14 changes driven by State Board of Education decisions about this component for the report card for traditional schools and districts.
Dual Enrollment • This measure captures HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT earned in a course the QUALIFIES for college credit. • Calculation uses: • October course records • CTE College Credit Flag, AP, IB, PSEO • Yearend student course records • Earned credit (full or partial)
Post-Program Outcomes Component Measure: Post-Program Placement Measure: Industry Credentials Data: FY13 March (D) Placement Results FY13 March (D) State or Industry-Recognized Certificate or License
Post-Program Placement • Plan for follow-up • Get contact info from students before they leave • Communicate with students about follow-up • Actually follow-up • Be mindful of software defaults • If a student is incorrectly reported as a concentrator, mark with X for status known • Report carefully and accurately
Industry Credentials • Make sure you get info about credentials before they leave school if possible • Make sure that, for industry assessments, you report both the assessment and the credential • Assessment in N or D, credential in D only (for now)
New Program-Level Reports • Program level reports will: • Be available late fall • Include statewide program performance for comparison • Include documentation about data points and ‘how to’ guide • Why is this important?
Program Level Reports • OGT Reading (1S1), Math (1S2), Science • Technical Skill & Participation (2S1) • Graduation (4S1) • Placement & Status Known (5S1) • Industry Credentials (1STP3) • Dual Enrollment (1STP4)
Calculations To find how each data point is calculated… Search “Performance Calculation Documentation” on the ODE website
