Accountability Scorecards An Early Orientation to the Future of Michigan School Accountability
Background Information Michigan applied and was approved for ESEA flexibility for school year and onward. MDE worked extensively with stakeholder groups and negotiations with USED to determine necessary changes and a new direction for Michigan’s School Report Cards. The preliminary and public accountability results for the school year will look and feel brand new but have familiar pieces and parts. The new report cards will be known as the: “Michigan School Accountability Scorecards”
Logistics Preliminary Scorecards for will reside on the newly- redesigned BAA Secure Site (set to launch July 2013). Users will have to be authorized and login to the site using their MEIS account. Permissions to view the report cards will be handled in the district. Any appeals to the preliminary scorecards will be handled through the new BAA Secure Site, similar to previous years. Public Scorecards will reside on MISchoolData.org with the other accountability designation results such as the Top-to- Bottom Rankings.
Overview Two “levels” of Accountability Scorecards: District Scorecards & School Scorecards Scorecards will use a color coding system (green, lime, yellow, orange, and red) to indicate school performance. Combines traditional accountability metrics with Top-to- Bottom labels and other state/federal requirements. Overall color is determined by Top to Bottom status as well as points earned by meeting traditional AYP requirements. Individual “cells” use red/yellow/green coding scheme Points-based system where full points earned for meeting a target, half points earned for meeting safe harbor
An Early Look at Scorecards
Color-Coded Scorecards Colors are given to schools and districts for each “scorecard component” and an overall color. Overall status color is determined using a point-based system from the number of target areas the school/district has met and the school ranking. Decreasing # points received and increasing # targets not met… *These may not be the exact shades utilized in the final scorecard product (still under development).
What Changed? Additional subgroup: Bottom 30% Attendance target of 90% - (only for school, no subgroups) Differentiated proficiency targets Based on a school’s past performance Goal of 85% proficient at end of Targets increase in 10 equal increments Safe Harbor based on 80 th percentile of statewide proficiency Use school/district improvement slope to determine met/not met Inclusion of Educator Effectiveness label reporting and TSDL completion in Scorecards Inclusion of Compliance Factors (SIP & SPR)
Most of the nuts and bolts of AYP have remained the same!
What Stayed the Same? Participation requirement = 95% for school/district overall and all valid subgroups Multi-year averaging remains in place (up to three years) Graduation requirement = 80% for school/district overall and all valid subgroups Four, five, and six-year rates Graduation “safe harbor” Use of provisional and growth scores for accountable proficiency rates
School and District Scorecard Subgroups All Students Bottom 30% (for proficiency calculations only) NEW! American Indian or Alaska Native Black or African American Asian NEW! Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander NEW! White Two or more races Hispanic of any races Economically Disadvantaged English Language Learners Students with Disabilities Shared Education Entity (SEE) (district-level only) Previously ONE group!
Participation 95% of students are still required to be tested to meet the assessment participation target for the scorecard. If student group size is 30-39, target is no more than two non- participants (this makes it so that a single student cannot result in not meeting the target participation rate). If student group size is 40 or more, target is 95% participation Participation rate is rounded to nearest hundredth If the “All Students” group does not have at least 30 students in one test cycle, a participation average will be calculated using up to three years of data in order to accumulate at least 30 students Multi-year averaging used help meet the participation req.
Participation Target Two options for school/district color status for this target area. 95% Assessed Met 95% Assessed Not Met These colors are given ONLY on the participation target portion of the scorecard. This does not change your entire school/district status, however, it can impact your overall color.
Proficiency Targets Targets are based on proficiency rates: (85 – current percent proficient) / 10 = annual increment Increments do not reset Proficiency targets are set using PLs 1 & 2 only (not Provisional or Growth Proficient) Provisional and/or Growth Proficient will help you meet targets
Example Proficiency Targets School has 65% proficiency in school year. School must be 85% proficient by school year. Subtract baseline target from end target rate and divide by the number of school years in between. (85 – 65)/10 = +2% annual increment of target The school’s target would be 67% in , 69% in , 71% in , and so on.
Proficiency Targets Example Example school starts from 65% proficient in subject Example school ends at (at least) 85% proficient in subject Example School has +2% Annual Target
Multi-year Proficiency Calculations Multi-year weighted proficiency averages are used in cases where a single year’s proficiency rate is not meeting the school’s target Weighting is based on the school’s assessed enrollment in each year Up to three years are used in this sequence: 1. Calculate single year proficiency rate. Go to 2 if target is not met. 2. Calculate weighted two year proficiency rate. Go to 3 if target is not met. 3. Calculate weighted three year proficiency rate. Go to 4 if target not met. 4. Calculate Safe Harbor. If not met, cell is red (0 points).
Proficiency “Cell” Basics All valid subgroups will have a proficiency cell with possible points Districts will potentially have a SEE subgroup if they are a SEE member district with at least 30 FAY SEE students Schools and districts will always have an “All Students” group, even with one FAY student All assessed content areas will have cells (Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies)
Proficiency Cell Colors and Points Green cells are worth two points and are earned by meeting the school’s or district’s proficiency target Yellow cells are worth one point and are earned by meeting the Safe Harbor target (instead of meeting the proficiency target) Red cells are worth zero points and are earned by not meeting proficiency or Safe Harbor targets The Bottom 30% subgroup will earn a green cell and two points by meeting the Safe Harbor target
Students considered proficient are… vs. “Accountable Proficient” versus Proficient For ‘True Proficiency’ purposes: Performance Level 1 or 2 For ‘Accountable Proficiency’ purposes: Students must attain a performance level of 1 or 2 –OR– Students must attain a scale score that is within 2 standard errors of the proficient cut score (provisionally proficient). –OR– Students must demonstrate growth at a rate that will allow them to reach proficiency in three years (growth proficient).
“Accountable Proficient” versus Proficient Considerations: Provisional proficiency and growth proficiency are helpful in meeting proficiency target rates but do not match your MEAP/MME raw reports and MISchoolData. Proficiency rates in MISchoolData and on MME/MEAP reports will also be different from from accountable proficiency rates because the accountable rates only reflect Full Academic Year (FAY) students at the appropriate feeder schools.
Full Academic Year (FAY) Students that were present in the building for the last: 2 count days + student in end-of-year collection (Elem./M.S.) 3 count days + student in end-of-year collection (H.S.) Only FAY students can count toward a school or district’s proficiency rates for accountability purposes. Limits the impact of student transiency on accountability. Ensures that only students that have been educated by the school/district count for proficiency.
1% and 2% Caps & Alternate Assessments 1% MI-Access 1% Automatic Cap +1% Additional (with waiver and appeal) 2% MEAP-Access 2% Automatic Cap Assessment participation is never capped in either brand of alternate assessments.
Graduation Rates 3 Possible colors to receive for this target area: If a school/subgroup has a graduation rate of at least 80%, it will receive a green cell (2 points). If it makes the graduation rate improvement target, it will receive a yellow cell (1 point). If it misses both the rate and the improvement target, they will receive a red cell (0 points). Audit: * A school/district’s overall status color is automatically yellow if it has a red for the “All Students” group for this target.
Attendance Rates 3 Possible colors to receive for this target area: If a school meets the attendance target, it will receive a green cell (2 points) for attendance rate. If a school meets the attendance improvement target, it will receive a yellow cell (1 point). If it misses the attendance target, they will receive a red cell (0 points). Audit: *A school/district receiving a red indicator for attendance cannot have an overall color ranking better than yellow.
Educator Evaluations (NEW!) Educator Evaluations are based on State law. All of Michigan’s educators will be evaluated using measures of student growth and the results of these evaluations will be reported into MDE’s data systems. Educator Evaluations will be reported as “In Good Standing” or “Not in Good Standing” based on compliance with State law. Two components make up the Educator Evaluations section Effectiveness Labels Completion rate (100% target) TSDL Student Inclusion rate (95% target) 2 Possible colors to receive for this target: Those in good standing will receive a green cell. Those not in good standing will receive a red cell.
Compliance Factors (PARTIALLY NEW!) Compliance Factors are based on State law. All schools are required by State law to have a School Improvement Plan (SIP), and to complete School Performance Indicator (SPR) reports. If a school completes all of its required reports it will receive a green cell for the Compliance Factors. If a school does not complete its required reports, it will receive a red cell for Compliance Factors. 2 Possible colors to receive for this target: Those with completed reports receive a green cell. Those with incomplete reports receive a red cell.
The Point-Based System for Overall School/District Color Status Target areas on the Accountability Scorecard are worth points that contribute to your school or district overall status color. In general, meeting a target will yield 2 pts or the full point value. Meeting a target through safe harbor or improvement will yield 1 point or half the point value (NOT true for Ed Evals and Compliance Factors targets) Not meeting a target will yield 0 points. We determine the school/district’s % points received and apply it the color scale: Green: pts >85% Orange: 50%
Point Values by Color for Each Target Area Target Area (where applicable) Target Met Target Met Through Safe Harbor or Improvement Target Not Met Participation Green- 0pts;Not applicable;Red- 0pts; Proficiency of All Students Green- 2pts;Yellow- 1pt;Red- 0pts; Proficiency of Bottom 30% Green- 2pts; Red- 0pts; Proficiency of Subgroups (up to 11 more, where present) Green- 2pts;Yellow- 1pt; Red- 0pts; Graduation Rate Green- 2pts for ‘all students’ group and each subgroup where applicable Yellow- 1pt for ‘all students’ group and each subgroup where applicable; Red- 0pts; Attendance Rates Green- 2pts;Yellow- 1pt;Red- 0pts; Ed Evals Green- Up to 5% possible of overall, available points; Not applicable; Red- 0pts; (School/district overall color cannot be better than yellow) Compliance Factors Green- Up to 5% possible of overall, available points; (schools/districts w/o reporting req's will receive green and 0pts) Not applicable;Red- 0pts; (School/district overall color cannot be better than yellow)
Totaling up your Points Add up the number of received points for your school/district Add up the number of possible points for your school/district # Received Pts= % Points Received # Possible Pts Apply the percent of received points to the color scale Apply “secondary rules” for target areas if applicable ie: % points indicates this to be a green school BUT the school did not have teacher effectiveness labels reported, school’s overall color now becomes yellow.
How do we receive an overall ‘green’ status? School not labeled as Priority School/district meets 95% participation requirement for all valid student groups School/district attains 85% or greater of possible points in AYP areas
How do we receive an overall ‘light green’ status? School/district attains at least 70% but less than 85% of possible points in AYP areas School/district meets 95% participation requirement for all valid student groups
How do we receive an overall ‘yellow’ status? School/district has a red in one or more subgroups because of not meeting proficiency targets School/district has a red because of not meeting overall graduation target (“All Students” group) School/district has a red because of not meeting overall attendance targets School/district has one red in one of the subgroups or one “All Students” group because of not meeting participation target School/district has a red in the Educator Evaluation section School has a red in the Compliance with State Law section School/district attains 60% - less than 70% of possible points in AYP areas
How do we receive an overall ‘orange’ status? School/district attains at least 50% but less than 60% of possible points in AYP areas School/district has two red subgroup participation cells or a combination of one red “All Students” group and one red subgroup cell
How do we receive an overall ‘red’ status? School labeled as Priority School/district attains less than 50% of possible points in AYP areas (more details later) School/district has less than 95% participation rate (red cell) in at least two content areas for the “All Students” group School/district has more than two red subgroup participation cells or a combination of one red “All Students” group and two or more red subgroup cells
