7 FLDOE Framework for the School Grading System for and Beyond Gisela Feild Administrative Director Assessment, Research and Data Analysis July 2014

8 Revised Education Accountability Governor’s Education Accountability Summit and Executive Order ▫Provide stability and clarity with the transition to a new assessment ▫Pursue Florida’s course of action regarding English Language Learners (ELL) in the ESEA waiver ▫Ensure the accountability system is fair and transparent and promotes improvement in student outcomes Senate Bill 1642 provides the framework for the updated school accountability system consistent with those objectives

9 Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions Re-focuses the school grading formula on student success measures ▫Achievement ▫Learning gains ▫Graduation ▫Earning College Credit and/or Industry Certifications Maintains a focus on students who need the most support ELLs included in Achievement after 2 years Establishes 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

10 Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions - continued Eliminates provisions that over-complicate the formula and muddle the meaning of a school grade ▫No bonus factors or additional weighting that may raise a school grade ▫No additional requirements or no automatic adjustments that may lower a school grade Ensures that the level of performance associated with an A-F school grade is transparently evident ▫Report all school grade components as percentages, each worth a maximum of 100 points ▫Report A-F grades based on a percentage of points earned (e.g., 70%, 80%), rather than a point total

11 Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Revisions - continued Requires the State Board to reset the grading scale avoiding the compression of the current scale ▫There must be at least five percentage points separating the percentage thresholds needed to earn each of the school grades The State Board must periodically review the scale to determine whether the expectations should be raised to encourage increased student achievement ▫If 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

12 Elementary School Grades Model (700 points) The school grade is based on the percentage of total points earned Provisions 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 components English/ Language Arts MathematicsScience Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%)

13 Middle School Grades Model (900 points) The school grade is based on the percentage of total points earned Provisions 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 components English/ Language Arts MathematicsScienceSocial Studies (Civics EOC) Acceleration Success Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Percentage who pass H.S. EOCs & industry certifications (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%)

14 Senior High School Grades Model (1000 points) The school grade is based on the percentage of total points earned Provisions 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 components Additional graduation rates (At-Risk and 5-year), college readiness measures (based on SAT, ACT, and PERT), and a stand-alone acceleration participation measure are eliminated from the model English/ Language Arts MathematicsScienceSocial Studies (US History EOC) Graduation Rate Acceleration Success Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Achievement (0% to 100%) Overall, 4-Year Graduation Rate (0% to 100%) Percentage of students who can earn college credit - AP,IB,AICE,DE, IC (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%) Learning Gains of the Low 25% (0% to 100%)

15 Senate 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 rule After 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 assessment A new baseline calculation of school grades will occur in Fall 2015, which accurately reflects student performance on the Florida Standards and FSA This 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

16 Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Transition Year No Consequences from the Baseline School Grades No interruption in current support to underperforming schools through our Differentiated Accountability teams A school may not be required to select and implement a turnaround option in the school year based on the grade or school improvement rating A district or charter school system designated as high- performing may not lose the designation based on the grades For purposes of determining grade 3 retention and high school graduation, student performance on the assessments shall be linked to student performance expectations ▫Same process used for FCAT to FCAT 2.0

17 Senate Bill 1642–Education Accountability Implementation Schedule Commissioner re-establishing advisory groups to receive input ▫ LPAC, Leadership Policy Advisory Committee ▫ AAAC, Assessment and Accountability Advisory Committee LPAC and AAAC will meet in the summer and fall Draft of school grades rule to the State Board in early 2015 Standards setting meetings held summer 2015 Draft of rule on school grading scale to the State Board in Sept/Oct Grades calculated in Oct/Nov 2015

19 Test Security, Reporting Violations, and Responding to State Inquiries Dr. Sally A. Shay

20  Standards, Guidelines, and Procedures for Test Administration and Test Security available at TestChairInfo/InfoForTest Chair.asp TestChairInfo/InfoForTest General guidelines adopted by School Board  Florida Test Security Statute and Rule Security

21 From Standards: Designation of District Assessments (DDEOC) Validity of assessments Sources for selection Results: reporting and application Security concerns ▫Development ▫Materials ▫Administration 21

22  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; and Schools with improbable levels of similarity, gains and/or erasures.  Flagging only the most extreme results. FCAT/FCAT 2.0/NGSSS EOC Caveon Data Forensics

23  Most Powerful & “Credible” Statistic Measures degree of similarity between two or more test instances Analyze each test instance against all other test instances in the school  Possible causes of extremely high similarity: Answer Copying Test Coaching Proxy Test Taking Collusion Caveon Similarity Index

24 A Comparison…

25  Based on estimated answer changing rates from: Wrong-to-Right Anything-to-Wrong  Find answer sheets with unusual WtR answers  Extreme 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. Caveon Erasure Analyses

26 FSA 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. 26
