Accountability Council Staff Work Since 5/20/02 Reviewed the results of the four teams work in an effort to: –Consolidate similar issues, measures –Consistently apply the Levels concept to proposed measures Sorted proposed measures into two general groups within the first two levels: –Contextual Indicators - Statistics useful in understanding Floridas position, local education agency positions, ranking, population status, but which are difficult to affect by policy or programmatic decisions; measures where standards or goals are difficult to define; accounting measures…. –Performance Measures - measures that would be actionable by policy or programmatic decisions; measures where performance standards or goals could be defined. The first step here is to define the major performance themes.
