1 PVAAS (The Pennsylvania Value Added Assessment System )

2 PVAAS IS: Another tool we can use to look at our school data A way to determine if students made one year’s worth of growth When combined with PSSA scores, we get a clearer picture of school achievement

3 PVAAS is NOT: Another Test; the data is taken from the PSSA A measure for teacher accountability

4 Things to Keep in Mind PVAAS does not take into account a student’s starting point. It looks at growth over a year. PVAAS measures growth, not AYP level A Scatter Plot graph combines both

5 The Scatter Plot Coordinate System Vertical Axis PSSA Percent Proficient or Advanced Horizontal Axis PVAAS Growth Measure AYP Percent Proficient Target Growth Line

6 Scatter Plot Quadrants and Their Meanings Quadrant 1 Met AYP Positive Growth Quadrant 4 Didn’t reach AYP Proficiency Target Positive Growth Quadrant 2 Met AYP Negative Growth Quadrant 3 Didn’t reach AYP Proficiency Target Negative Growth

7 What does PVAAS show? Today Looking Back/Evaluation… Value-added Growth Reports For Cohorts of Students Looking Forward/Planning… PVAAS Projection Reports For Individual Students and Cohorts of Students Looking ahead Looking back

8 Value-added Measure of Cohort Growth Comparison to a State Growth Standard The Growth Standard specifies the minimal designated academic gain from grade to grade for a cohort of students. The use of a Growth Standard creates the possibility that ALL schools can demonstrate appropriate growth. Looking back

9 PVAAS Value-added Cohort Growth Descriptors Favorable Indicator Estimated gain at or above growth standard. Students in this cohort have made at least one year growth. All schools can achieve this rating. Caution Indicator Estimated gain below growth standard but by less than one standard error. Students in this cohort have grown less than the standard. Stronger Caution Estimated gain below growth standard by more than one but less than two standard errors. Students in this cohort have fallen behind their peers. Strongest Warning Estimated gain well below growth standard by more than two standard errors. Students in this cohort have made little progress. Looking back

10 PVAAS School Report This is an example of a School Value Added Report. It shows us growth by grade level. We can also use the chart at the bottom of the page to see growth of the same cohort over time. Looking back

11 This chart is an example of a school performance diagnostic report We can see the growth for groups of students The green line is at zero. This is the growth line. Everything at or above the line shows that the students have made one year’s worth of growth. Everything below the green growth line shows that the students slipped from last year. (They did not remain in the same position as last year) PVAAS Performance Diagnostic Report Looking back

12 More Detail – Diagnostic Report Looking back

13 Looking at a subgroup… Looking back

14 Your Turn! Your Reports! Go to: https://pvaas.sas.comhttps://pvaas.sas.com Login: PVAAS.Training Password: PVAAS To view School Value Added Reports Under Reports, select School Value Added Reports Using the tabs on the top of the page, you can change the subject or school To View School Performance Diagnostic Reports Under Reports, select School Performance Diagnostic Select Subgroups (this is an optional filter to view the diagnostic report for specific subgroups of students) Looking back

15 Questions/Comments about PVAAS Growth Graphs Looking back

16 What does PVAAS show? Today Looking Back/Evaluation… Value-added Growth Reports For Cohorts of Students Looking Forward/Planning… PVAAS Projection Reports For Individual Students and Cohorts of Students Looking ahead Looking back

17 Student Projections Wouldn’t it be great to know the likelihood that a student will be proficient on a future PSSA? Looking ahead

18 PVAAS Student Projection Report Looking ahead

19 PVAAS Projection Reports for Groups of Students by Subgroup and/or Projected Proficiency Level Looking ahead

20 Identified Students Meeting Search Requirements Looking ahead

21 Your Turn! Your Reports! Go to: https://pvaas.sas.comhttps://pvaas.sas.com Login: PVAAS.Training Password: PVAAS Under Reports, select Student Search Restrict Search by Grade: 8 (this is the grade last tested) Restrict Search by Projected Proficiency Level: Test-PSSA, Restrict by Subject (level): 11 th Math Proficient, 0% to 100% Looking ahead

22 Questions/Comments about PVAAS Prediction Graphs Looking ahead

23 Let’s Summarize Review Chart on PVAAS
