Rationale The NEW color code scheme and legend language allow for alignment of the reporting for grades 4-8 AND grades 9-11- reading, math, science and writing The NEW color code scheme differentiates on both ends of the continuum, whereas the previous grades 4-8 color code scheme only differentiated below ZERO (a years worth of growth). Each color code range is determined based on the standard error (SE).
NEW Color Legend for Use in Both Grades 4-8 & Grades 9-11 PVAAS Value-Added Reports
The district value-added report…. The Growth Standard represents the minimal…. The State 3-YR-Avg… New Roll-over Feature
Common Questions Q: Will the new color codes scheme/legends be used on the Public PVAAS reporting site? A: Yes, the colors and the legends will be the same on the LEA protected site and the public PVAAS site Q: How do you interpret the different shades of blue? Does dark blue mean more growth was achieved then light blue? A: The key statement in the legend is the level of evidence – significant and moderate.
Common Questions Q: Will the roll-over text show up when I print a report? A: No, not with the Sept 2011 release of the PVAAs reporting. In future versions of PVAAS, there is a plan to offer an annotated version of a printed report that will include the roll-over text. Q: Is the roll-over text located in a document that I can use to explain certain terms to my district/school teams? A: All rollover text is fully explained in the help menus.
Rationale PVAAS scatterplots have been provided to LEAs in a static form (PPTs) for the past several years. Scatterplots will now be provided via the web-based PVAAS reporting site! Districts and schools can use this new web- based report to find and highlight their schools. The availability to view data from other LEAs will be aligned to legislative requirements for public access.
Accessing Scatter Plots The new scatter plot report can be accessed directly within the orange Reports tab
Customizing Scatter Plots Users can switch subjects and grade Users can also switch the the X and Y Axis

Common Questions Q: Will my district /LEA still receive a PowerPoint file with my districts scatter plots in comparison to my IU region and the state as in previous years? A: Yes! For SY11-12 all comparative scatter plot files will be distributed by mid-to-late November to IUs to disseminate to LEAs. Decisions for future years will be based upon feedback from focus groups during the 2011- 12 school year Q: Who can access the new web-based scatter plots? A: These will be included on the LEA PVAAS protected site and the PVAAS public site; The data reported will be different on each site
Common Questions Q: Will web-based scatter plots be available on the Public PVAAS reporting site? A: Yes - however, the public site will only include data that is required via legislation; currently legislation does not require the reporting of grade level data Q: Will other districts/schools/public be able to see my districts gain and achievement levels? A: PA legislation determines what data is public reported. Since the reporting of grade level data is not required by legislation, LEAs will only see the grade level data for their respective LEA.
