1 1 Accountability in P-16 Systems & Database Issues: Florida Perspective August 13, 2004 Jay Pfeiffer, Director K20 Education Information and Accountability Division of Accountability Research and Measurement Florida Department of Education PK20

2 2 K-20 Education Accountability: Lessons Learned in the Florida Experience 1.Legislative authority with key time frames. 2.Establish a K-20 education performance accountability task force broadly representatives of the affected education entities. 3.Do not impose an agenda, work through sector-level consensus. 4.Inform the process: present data that defines the K-20 delivery system and student flows. 5.Establish a few high level system goals.. 6.Establish guiding principles and stick to them a.“Trapezoid” of Accountability b.Simple/actionable c.Focus on outputs d.Incorporate existing requirements & capabilities where possible 7.Grapple with data issues a.Timing b.Definitions c.Compatibility d.Numerators and denominators 8.Set standards, performance expectations based on data 9.Inform local entities regarding measures and expectations 10.Deal with consequences last, phase in as appropriate

4 4 The State Board of Education must: Maintain an accountability system that measures student progress toward the state’s education goals: Highest Student Achievement Seamless Articulation and Maximum Access Skilled Workforce and Economic Development Quality Efficient Services Adopt guiding principles for establishing state and sector specific standards and measures Recommend to the Legislature system-wide performance standards Performance Accountability System Overview – State Law

5 5 CoreSector-Specific Institutional Measures Highest Student Achievement Seamless Articulation Quality, Efficient Services K-20 Education Performance Accountability Levels K-20 Goals Maximum Access Skilled Workforce System Measures

6 6 CoreSector-Specific Institutional Measures Highest Student Achievement Seamless Articulation Quality, Efficient Services K-20 Education Performance Accountability Levels K-20 Goals Maximum Access Skilled Workforce System Measures Sector “Core” Measures Strategic/Unique Mission Sector Measures Local leading indicators, process indicators, unique local goals

7 7 Simplicity and Focus Simplicity and Focus Actionable Actionable Good data Good data Comparisons against one’s own past performance Comparisons against one’s own past performance Balance Quantity with Quality Balance Quantity with Quality

8 8 Common Measures -SBE Approved Measures Student Achievement  Student Learning Gains at key educational milestonesAccess  Number and percent of students from underserved populations who enroll in and complete education credentials Progression and Readiness  K20 Graduation rates Employment & Earnings Meet targeted workforce needs. Quality/Efficient Services  Return on Investment

9 9 Setting Performance Improvement Targets Calculation Years of Good Data X X Principles: 1.Throw out high, low, anomalies (if there are sufficient years of data) 2.Consider volatility, vulnerability 3.Look for “noise”

10 10 Mid Point Example: Distribution of Performances Divided into quartiles Performance Improvement Goal Setting

11 11 K-20 Education Performance Accountability: Performance Based Funding: State Law By December 1, 2004, the Department of Education must make recommendations to the Legislature regarding performance-based funding that applies accountability standards for public education at every level, kindergarten through graduate school. The State Board of Education’s proposal to the Legislature must provide that at least 10 percent of the state funds appropriated for the k-20 education system are conditional upon meeting or exceeding established performance standards.

12 12 Three Ways to Approach Performance Funding 1.Total Appropriation = workload calculation + performance calculation 2.Two Appropriations: a workload appropriation and a separate performance appropriation 3.High Stakes Appropriation: Total appropriated amount + or – performance earnings

13 13 Performance Calculation - Basics Evidence of Student Learning Evidence of Access Evidence of Progression /Readiness Evidence of Employment & Earnings Evidence of Return on Investment Performance Calculation = Evidence of Performance for Unique Sector Measures

14 14 Performance Calculation – Consider Weights? Evidence of Student Learning 2X Evidence of Access 2X Evidence of Progression /Readiness 1X Evidence of Employment & Earnings 1X Evidence of Return on Investment 0X Performance Calculation = Evidence of Performance for Unique Sector Measures 1X

15 15 Meets Performance Expectations? Evaluate Expectations YES Evaluate Expectations YES Evaluate Expectations YES NO Develop SBE Plan for Improvement Assistance Provided Technical Assistance By Sectors Consequences Begin NO Phase

17 17 Integrated Education Performance Management System – The IEPMS DOE issued “ITN” at the end of February, 2004 ITN outlined five components –Web-based Student Performance Information system –Interface with district tools and data resources –Web-based training for teachers and managers –State-level performance information integration tools –Training for effective deployment and management
