Graduation Rate Gap

  4. What goes into Phase I of the Accountability Model? Accountability Phase I The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change. Achievement Achievement Gap Graduation Rate Attendance Rate

  5. Achievement Gap • Phase I Accountability • (During the 2013-2014 school year, baseline data will be collected on the accountability elements listed below.) • Achievement • Gap • Graduation Rate • Attendance Rate Graduation Rate Attendance Rate The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  6. Achievement and Accountability Achievement will be calculated for both reading and math. Achievement The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  7. Transitioning to New Assessments ARMT+ Grades 3-8 ACT Aspire Alabama High School Graduation Exam High School ACT Quality Core Alabama Alternate Assessment Grades 3-12 Alabama Alternate Assessment The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  8. Achievement and Accountability The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  9. Achievement • Achievement Data: • measures students’ achievements in reading and mathematics. • can pinpoint students’ academic growth in the all students groups, subgroups, and individually. • measures academic progress from one test administration to the next. Achievement The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  10. Achievement: Next Steps Action Items • Assess how all grade levels combined performed on the assessments. • Assess how each grade level performed on the assessments in reading and math. • Determine which subgroups exist in the school/district. • Assess how each subgroup performed on the assessments in grade levels and combined grade levels. • Address instructional weaknesses. • Moving forward, determine if there is an increase or decrease for all students, subgroups, and individual students from one year to the next. • What strengths can be celebrated? • How will data be used to drive instructional decisions? • How will teachers use data to improve student achievement? The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  11. GAP and Accountability Gap Gap will be determined based upon student groups that traditionally perform below achievement level. Gap will consist of students identified in the following subgroups: Black, English Learners, Hispanic, Poverty, and Special Education. The percentage of proficient students from each subgroup will be combined to determine the Gap. Remember the n count for a subgroup is 20. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  12. Gap Data Sources GAP GRADES K-12 UNIT SCHOOL GAP GRADES 9-12 GAP DISTRICTS GAP GRADES K-8 ACT Aspire (Reading and Mathematics) and Alabama Alternate Assessment (Reading and Mathematics) 4 Year Cohort Graduation Rate ACT Aspire (Reading and Mathematics) and Alabama Alternate Assessment (Reading and Mathematics) and 4 Year Cohort Graduation Rate ACT Aspire (Reading and Mathematics) and Alabama Alternate Assessment (Reading and Mathematics) and 4 Year Cohort Graduation Rate The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  13. GAP Measures the disparity in academic performance between groups of students Gap The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  14. GAP: Next Steps • Determine subgroups in the school/district. • Compare performance of subgroups on new assessments to performance of all students group on new assessments. • Determine if there are gaps between groups of students. • Where are achievement gaps? • What strategies will the school/district implement to help close the gaps? • Moving forward, is the current year’s gap larger or smaller than the previous year’s gap? • Calculate the graduation rate for the all students groups. • Calculate the graduation rate for each subgroup in the school/district. • Determine if there are gaps between groups of students. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  15. Graduation Rate and Accountability Graduation Rate Graduation rate will be calculated in schools with a grade 12. The graduation rate will be calculated using both four-year and five-year cohort graduation rates. Graduation rates will be disaggregated by subgroups. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  16. Graduation Rate Measures the number of students who graduate with a high school diploma within 4 years of becoming a first year ninth grader Graduation Rate The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  17. Graduation Rate: Next Steps • Determine students included in the 4 year cohort. • Determine the number of students who graduated with a high school diploma within 4 years of becoming a first time ninth grader. • The 5 year cohort graduation rate is calculated in the same method except using students who graduated within 5 years of becoming a first time ninth grader. • Is the difference between current year’s graduation rate and previous year’s graduation rate an increase or decrease? • What strategies will be implemented to improve graduation rate? • What strategies will be employed to ensure students graduate within four years? • Review the transcripts of the 5 year cohort. Are there any patterns as to why these students did not graduated with the 4 year cohort? The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  18. Example of 4 Year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate Graduates (graduated within four years) First Time Ninth Graders 2010-2011 2008-2009 2009-2010 2011-2012 The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  20. Attendance Rate and Accountability Attendance Rate Attendance rate will be calculated in schools without grade 12. The goal is 95% or higher. ATTENDANCE WILL BE BASED ON THE AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE (ADA) REPORTED ON THE 9th MONTH REPORT FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR. Attendance rate will be used for schools without a grade 12 and districts. The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  21. Attendance Rate Attendance Rate Measures the Average Daily Attendance (ADA) for the entire year for a school/district The elements of the proposed accountability model are subject to change.

  22. Attendance Rate: Next Steps Attendance and achievement are inextricably linked. • Determine attendance rate for the all students groups and each subgroup. • Determine the difference between current year’s attendance rate and previous year’s attendance rate. • If there is an increase or decrease in attendance rate from year to year, what were the possible reasons for the difference? • Are there patterns in attendance rate data? • What strategies will be implemented to improve attendance rate?
