Rules and Legislation Regarding A-F Report Cards June 2013 Jennifer Stegman, Program Manager CTB
Session Goals ✦ Overview of New Rules and Legislation For The A- F Report Card ✦ Understanding of How the New Rules and Legislation May Effect Your Schools Grade
A Short History November 2012, First Release of A-F Report Cards March 2013, New Rules Approved May 2013, New Legislation
A-F Grading System Three areas of school performance are used to determine the grade of your school: ✦ Student Achievement (A measure of what students know) ✦ Student Growth (A measure of how students are learning) ✦ Whole School Performance (A measure of the condition of the school to support the success of students)
A - F Grading System Area of Performance MeasureWeight Student Achievement Performance Index (PI) based on results from the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP) 50% Student Growth Growth Index (GI) for Math and Reading results 25% GI for bottom 25% of Math and Reading results 25% Whole School Improvement Grade Point Average (WSGPA) for additional measures such as attendance rate, graduation rate, advanced course performance and others 10 Bonus Points
Grading Scales Grades will be calculated by combining the weighted average of points earned.
Grading Scales Grade Point Range Plus + Minus - A93-9697-10090-92 B83-8687-8980-82 C73-7677-7970-72 D63-6667-6960-62 FLess than or equal to 59%

Additional Criteria For the Overall GPA The overall grade for schools or districts will be lowered by one letter if the school tested less than 95% and greater than or equal 90% in Math and/or Reading. The school or district will receive an overall grade of F if the percent of students tested is less than 90% in Math and/or Reading
Student Achievement 50% of overall grade Student Achievement is measured by calculating a Performance Index (PI) that is based on the percent of student scores proficient or advanced on assessments administered by the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP).
Performance Index What assessments are included? Includes all OSTP assessments from all administrations (Summer, Winter/Trimester, and Spring) Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) End-of-Instruction Exams (EOI) Oklahoma Modified Alternative Assessment (OMAAP) Oklahoma Alternative Assessment Program (OAAP) Note: OAAP results were not included in calculations for the 2012 A-F Report Cards
Performance Index What content areas are included? ✦ All content areas administered by the OSTP are included. Grades 3 - 8 Mathematics, Reading, Science, Social Studies, History, Geography, and Writing as applicable End-of-Instruction Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, English II, English III, Biology I, and U.S. History
Performance Index Which student results are included? ✦ The PI formula only includes student results designated as: “ Full Academic Year (FAY) ” “ First Opportunity EOI Test Takers ” ✦ Does not include students designated as “ Other Placement ” ✦ Students taking high school courses at the middle school will be included for both the current middle school (current year) and future high school (year student is in high school). A 1% and 2% cap applies for satisfactory or advanced scores of OAAP and OMAAP results in Math and Reading respectively.
Performance Index Weights Performance Level Weight by Student Score (multiplier) Advanced1 Proficient/Satisfactory1 Limited Knowledge0 Unsatisfactory0 The number of students scores at each of the performance levels are multiplied by the given weights to obtain points on the PI.
Performance Index Performance Level # of Scores WeightPoints Advanced151 Proficient/Satisfactory551 Limited Knowledge2000 Unsatisfactory1000 Totals:10070 The PI is calculated as: the total number of points divided by the total number of students scores PI = 70/100 = 70%
Student Growth 25% growth for all students and 25% growth for bottom percent of students of the overall grade ✦ Growth is measured by calculating a Growth Index that awards points for gains in a student ’ s performance across two years or students scores that improve substantially within a performance level across the two years.
Growth Index What assessments are included? ✦ Includes results from the: Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) End-of-Instruction Exams (EOI) Oklahoma Modified Alternative Assessment (OMAAP) Oklahoma Alternative Assessment Program (OAAP) Note: OAAP results were not included in calculations for the 2012 A-F Report Cards
Growth Index What content areas are included? ✦ Results Grades 3 - 8 Mathematics and Reading End-of-Instruction Algebra I and English II
Growth Index How are student scores matched? ✦ The GI calculations only include student results with matched scores from previous to current year in the same assessment. (e.g. OCCT to OCCT or OMAAP to OMAAP) ✦ Prior scores may or may not have been in your school or district. Current Year Prior Year(s) Grade 4 Math or Reading Grade 3 Math or Reading Grade 5 Math or Reading Grade4 Math or Reading Grade 6 Math or Reading Grade 5 Math or Reading Grade 7 Math or Reading Grade 6 Math or Reading Grade 8 Math or Reading Grade 7 Math or Reading EOI Algebra I or English II Grade 8 Math or Reading
Growth Index For All Students (GI) Which student results are included? ✦ Includes student score designations provided in the current year of: “ Full Academic Year (FAY) ” “ First Opportunity EOI Test Takers ” ✦ Does not include students scores designated as “ Other Placement ” in the current year
Growth Index For Student Scores in Bottom 25% (B25GI) Which student results are included? ✦ The bottom 25% of prior year student scores in Math. ✦ The bottom 25% of prior year student scores in. ✦ To identify the bottom 25% of student scores, the scores are ranked by a state percentile that has been calculated for each assessment.
B25GI Which student results are included? ✦ Includes only the student scores designated, in the current year, as: “ Full Academic Year (FAY) ” “ First Opportunity EOI Test Takers ” ✦ Does not include students scores designated, in the current year, as “ Other Placement ”

This may or may not continue when new rules are aligned with the new legislation.
Growth Index (GI and B25GI) How do you calculate the Index? ✦ Total Points Obtained (divided by) Total Student Scores
Whole School Performance Bonus Points Only ✦ Bonus points are obtained from indicators included in the whole school performance. The indicators are designated by school type (Elementary, Middle, and High School).
Whole School Performance What Indicators are included for each school type? ✦ Elementary attendance rate (10) ✦ Middle attendance rate (6) dropout rate (2) Advanced Coursework (2) ✦ High School graduation rate (5) Low Performing Graduation Rate (1) advanced course performance or participation (1) College entrance exam performance or participation (1) Performance of students on the end- of-Instruction assessments (1) Improved performance on the above indicators (1)
Elementary and Middle Schools How are these indicators defined?
