8Revised Education Accountability Governor’s Education Accountability Summit and Executive OrderProvide stability and clarity with the transition to a new assessmentPursue Florida’s course of action regarding English Language Learners (ELL) in the ESEA waiverEnsure the accountability system is fair and transparent and promotes improvement in student outcomesSenate Bill 1642 provides the framework for the updated school accountability system consistent with those objectives
9Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions Re-focuses the school grading formula on student success measuresAchievementLearning gainsGraduationEarning College Credit and/or Industry CertificationsMaintains a focus on students who need the most supportELLs included in Achievement after 2 yearsEstablishes a learning gains calculation that (1) requires students scoring below grade level to grow toward grade level performance, and (2) requires students already at grade level to progress beyond grade level performance
10Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions - continued Eliminates provisions that over-complicate the formula and muddle the meaning of a school gradeNo bonus factors or additional weighting that may raise a school gradeNo additional requirements or no automatic adjustments that may lower a school gradeEnsures that the level of performance associated with an A-F school grade is transparently evidentReport all school grade components as percentages, each worth a maximum of 100 pointsReport A-F grades based on a percentage of points earned (e.g., 70%, 80%), rather than a point total
11Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions - continued Requires the State Board to reset the grading scale avoiding the compression of the current scaleThere must be at least five percentage points separating the percentage thresholds needed to earn each of the school gradesThe State Board must periodically review the scale to determine whether the expectations should be raised to encourage increased student achievementIf the Board adjusts the grading scale upward, it must inform the public and the school districts of the reasons for the adjustment and the anticipated impact on school grades
12Elementary School Grades Model (700 points) The school grade is based on the percentage of total points earnedProvisions that may raise or lower a school’s grade beyond what the percentage of points would indicate are eliminated (no additional requirements; no additional weights/bonus; no automatic adjustments)Writing is included within the English/Language Arts componentsEnglish/ Language ArtsMathematicsScienceAchievement(0% to 100%)Learning GainsLearning Gains of the Low 25%
13Middle School Grades Model (900 points) The school grade is based on the percentage of total points earnedProvisions that may raise or lower a school’s grade beyond what the percentage of points would indicate are eliminated (no additional requirements; no additional weights/bonus; no automatic adjustments)Writing is included within the English/Language Arts componentsEnglish/ Language ArtsMathematicsScienceSocial Studies(Civics EOC)Acceleration SuccessAchievement(0% to 100%)Percentage who pass H.S.

15Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Transition Year For the current school year (pending senior high, ), there are no changes to the school grading system, except those already directed by existing statute or State Board ruleAfter Florida students take the new assessments for the first time in , student performance level expectations (“cut scores”) will be set in the summer immediately following the first administration of the new assessmentA new baseline calculation of school grades will occur in Fall 2015, which accurately reflects student performance on the Florida Standards and FSAThis baseline, informational approach in the first year provides everyone – parents, schools, districts, the general public – a clear understanding of a student’s and a school’s starting point on the new, more rigorous Florida Standards and FSA
16Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Transition Year No Consequences from the Baseline School GradesNo interruption in current support to underperforming schools through our Differentiated Accountability teamsA school may not be required to select and implement a turnaround option in the school year based on the grade or school improvement ratingA district or charter school system designated as high- performing may not lose the designation based on the gradesFor purposes of determining grade 3 retention and high school graduation, student performance on the assessments shall be linked to student performance expectationsSame process used for FCAT to FCAT 2.0

22FCAT/FCAT 2.0/NGSSS EOC Caveon Data Forensics The FLDOE has contracted with Caveon Test Security to provide its Caveon Data Forensics™ for all statewide assessments.Caveon will analyze data to identify highly unusual test results for two primary groups:Students with extremely similar test responses; andSchools with improbable levels of similarity, gains and/or erasures.Flagging only the most extreme results.
23Caveon Similarity Index Most Powerful & “Credible” StatisticMeasures degree of similarity between two or more test instancesAnalyze each test instance against all other test instances in the schoolPossible causes of extremely high similarity:Answer CopyingTest CoachingProxy Test TakingCollusion23
25Caveon Erasure Analyses Based on estimated answer changing rates from:Wrong-to-RightAnything-to-WrongFind answer sheets with unusual WtR answersExtreme statistical outliers could involve tampering, “panic cheating”, etc.Important! No student–level score invalidations based on erasure analysis; erasure analysis limited to school-level flagging for additional review.25
26FSA and FS EOC AIR Data Forensics American Institutes for Research (AIR) will conduct data forensics using their own methodology.New model for similarity indices to be proposed at Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting in November.Webinars for districts after the TAC meeting; dates TBD.
