Several activities running concurrent with focus groups Ongoing activities Report card rubrics Analysis for peer sets and teacher qualification metric District report card Detailed report Cost benefit analysis Path forward To be discussed today Developing sample peer sets based on geography and demographic characteristics Analyzing teacher characteristics (e.g. ACT/SAT, undergrad university, in-field teaching, emergency/provisional certification) vs. school growth measures 1 To be discussed today Gathering and prioritizing metrics based on committee discussions, interviewees and benchmarking Interviewing data, platform experts on feasibility of potential design Performing analysis for metrics currently not available to ISBE 1. Utilizing CPS value-add data for analysis.

Report card legend Calculation methodology Given varied purposes of rubrics, recommend legend and calculation methodology for each report card Primary audience Families Data analysts, administrators and teachers Purpose Aid comprehension of report card Detail metric calculations so metrics are: Reported consistently across schools Fully understood by those using/ interpreting data Definition Defines metric with words in simple way Explains why metric is important 1 page in total Defines math calculation (i.e. equation) Provides details on inclusions/ exclusions Lists source and any other important notes 1 page per metric For ACM discussion: Any metrics of particular interest for focus group feedback? Report card rubrics

For discussion: High school report card legend (I) Any metrics of particular interest for focus group feedback? MetricDefinitionWhy it's important Outcomes Graduation % of students graduating within 4 years Percent of freshman who graduated within 4 years, adjusted for mobility. High school graduation is essential for success in today's economy. Readiness % of students college & career ready Percent of students who achieved an ACT composite of at least 20. This uses scores on the PSAE test in 11th grade. Students are more likely to succeed in the long- term if they finish high school ready to learn and succeed in college and career. 1 Success % of graduates enrolled in post- secondary institution within 2 semesters after graduation Percent of on-time graduates who enroll at a post-secondary school; includes colleges, universities, community colleges, and trade/ vocational schools. Two ‐ thirds of new jobs require college or other postsecondary education. Progress On track % of Freshman on track Percent of students who have earned sufficient credit to be promoted without failing more than one core class at the end of their freshman year (not including summer school). Success in freshman courses is a key predictor of ultimate success in and graduation from high school. Performance % of students meeting/exceeding state standards % of students exceeding state standards Percent of students meeting or exceeding and percent of students exceeding state standards for all subjects on the PSAE exam (an 11th grade exam). Indicates whether students are performing at or above acceptable standards set by the state in core subjects. Growth % of students achieving expected growth (under construction) TBD – Percent of students that achieve the expected academic improvement from year to year. To stay on track to graduate, students must achieve expected growth from one academic year to the next. Environ- ment Instructional quality Teacher qualification indexTBD Qualified teachers lead to improved student performance. Teacher performance evaluation results (under construction) How teachers' performance was rated across the 4 possible evaluation classifications: excellent; proficient; needs improvement; unsatisfactory. Teachers with past success in the classroom are more likely to improve student performance moving forward. Report card rubrics

16 IL report card ACM 3 vLTM.pptx 15 Draft – For discussion only Copyright © 2011 by The Boston Consulting Group, Inc. All rights reserved. For discussion: High school report card legend (II) Any metrics of particular interest for focus group feedback? MetricDefinitionWhy it's important Environ- ment Presence & engagement % of students with fewer than 10 absences from school Percent of students who were absent from school fewer than 10 times. A student is considered absent when s/he is in school for less than 5 hours while school is in session (regardless of absence reason). Students with high attendance are more likely to be on track for graduation; students with low attendance are more likely to drop out. % of teachers present in class 95% or more of their scheduled class time Percent of teachers present in their classrooms for 95% or more of their scheduled class time. Quality instruction requires consistent presence of students' teachers in the classroom. % of teachers who returned to school from previous year (3 year average) Percent of teachers from last year who returned to the school this year. A 3 year average is used given year to year variations. Retaining qualified teachers leads to improved student performance. Principal stability Number of different principals holding position at school over past 6 years. Retaining qualified principals provides stable leadership, which motivates teachers and creates a positive environment for students. Family & community engagement in student/ teacher survey TBD Students whose parents and communities are closely involved in their educational progress are more likely to succeed in school. Learning climate Learning climate in student/ teacher survey TBD When students feel safe, motivated, and challenged, they are more likely to succeed academically. Prof. climate Professional climate in teacher survey TBD Understanding teaching conditions helps schools pinpoint improvement areas; responding to these can lead to stronger teacher recruitment, motivation, and/or retention, which ultimately improves student performance.

District report card v0 excludes some metrics From student/ teacher attendance and middle and elementary report cards Guiding ?Sub-categoryLevelMetric excluded from district report card v0Rationale for exclusion Outcomes ReadinessMS% of 8th graders passing Algebra I with grade of C or better Reporting district-wide performance on state tests instead given encompasses more grade levels 1 ReadinessMS % of 8th graders meeting/ exceeding and % exceeding state standards on reading and math Readiness/ Success Elem % of 5th graders meeting/ exceeding and % exceeding state standards SuccessMS% of most recent alumni Freshman on track Reporting '% of Freshman on track' from HS report card; this metric would be duplicative ProgressOn trackMS % of 6th graders meeting/ exceeding and % exceeding state standards on reading and math Limited research to support as key indicator Environment Presence & engagement District% of students with fewer than 10 absences Prefer to include only at school-level to emphasize school's accountability for student/ teacher attendance District % of teachers present in class 95% or more of scheduled class time 1. Made explicit decision to include 3rd grade math / reading state test performance as district 'on track' metric given research supports metric as key indicator of future success. Do you agree with these exclusions? District report cards
