  1. Performance Comparisons for Schools in Madison County Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama February 17, 2011

  2. The PARCA Approach to Analysis of School Performance

  3. DO DEMOGRAPHICS AND FINANCES MATTER? • Yes, but they are not the controlling issues unless we fail to address them effectively. • Size • Poverty • Local Tax Support • Spending per Student • Administrative Costs

  4. HOW WE ANALYZE ARMT RESULTS • We look for successes as well as challenges. • We set expectations high, based on two important principles: • All students can learn at high levels. Demographics do not determine destiny. • All schools can improve. • Every performance number can change for the better. Labels are inappropriate.

  5. THE WAY WE LOOK AT THE DATA • We make straightforward comparisons that all can understand. • We recognize multiple levels of results, to avoid labeling. • We analyze results for the four major student subgroups in Alabama schools, to monitor success for all. • We use Level IV results as our benchmark. • We believe these features help to create an improvement-oriented perspective.

  6. COLOR-CODING THE RESULTS • To recognize the range of performance and avoid labeling, we color-code results in five categories.
