1 AZ Learns Legacy Profiles vs. A-F Profiles Assessment-Dr. Heather Cruz
2 Presentation Coverage A-F Model Legacy Model Comparing the two Models PreliminaryPublic Release A-F AZLearnsAugust 1Expected in October 2011 Legacy AZLearnsSeptember 7Expected in October 2011
4 Composite Score aka Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) CategoryElementary Schools High Schools and District Notes Percent Passing AIMS All scores for all subjects will be used to calculate this score (Writing will be excluded in 2011). Only Full Academic Year students are used in this calculation. Bonus - Made ELL Target 0 or 3 An entity will receive 0 or 3. Bonus - Made Graduation Rate Target 0 or 3 An entity will receive 0 or 3. Bonus - Made Dropout Rate Target 0 or 3 An entity will receive 0 or 3. Total If a school or district were to exceed 100, it would use just 100 points
5 Growth Score Longitudinal Regression Analysis Maximum of four years of data 10 th Grade (9 th GRADE NCE SAT 10, 8 th, 7 th and 6 th Percentile Rank for AIMS) 5 th Grade (4 th, 3 rd Percentile Rank for AIMS and 2 nd GRADE NCE SAT 10) Student will be included as long as they have a previous year score **Only Full Academic Year students are used in this calculation CategoryPoints A. Median growth percentile of all students0 to 100 B. Median Growth percentile of bottom 25%0 to 100 Average of A and B0 to 100

8 Looking at the Difference AZ Learns A-F AZ Learns Legacy
9 Comparing 9 AZ Learns Legacy Additional 3-9 Points AZ Learns A-F ELL 3% How do these two sections compare to one another A-F will have ELL, Graduation and Dropout rates as 3-9 points in addition to the 100 to account for half of AZ Learns Legacy for Elementary has 3% of the overall score. Legacy for high schools has 15% allotted for ELL, Dropout and Graduation rates.
10 Comparing AZ Learns A-F AZ Learns Legacy How do these two sections compare to one another MAP in the two Profiles ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT. MAP in A-F is the “Composite” score. Whereas, the MAP in the AZLearns Legacy is their individual growth components. The Legacy model uses a value added model that uses just two scores ( current years score and previous years score). The A-F model is a longitudinal regression analysis based on 1 year of data.
