Accountability Scorecards

An Early Orientation to the Future of Michigan School Accountability

Background Information
Michigan applied and was approved for ESEA flexibility for 2012-13 school year and onward. MDE worked extensively with stakeholder groups and negotiations with USED to determine necessary changes and a new direction for Michigans School Report Cards. The preliminary and public accountability results for the 201213 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 2012-13 will reside on the newlyredesigned 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-toBottom 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-toBottom 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% Safe Harbor based on 80th percentile of statewide proficiency Use school/district Attendance target of 90% improvement slope to (only for school, no subgroups) determine met/not met

Differentiated proficiency Inclusion of Educator targets Effectiveness label reporting Based on a schools past and TSDL completion in performance Scorecards Goal of 85% proficient at end of 2021-22 Inclusion of Compliance Factors Targets increase in 10 (SIP & SPR) equal increments

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! White Two or more races Hispanic of any races

American Indian or Alaska Native


Black or African American Asian NEW! Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander NEW!
Previously ONE group!

Economically Disadvantaged English Language Learners


Students with Disabilities Shared Education Entity (SEE) (district-level only)

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 nonparticipants (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 2011-12 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 2011-12 school year. School must be 85% proficient by 2021-22 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 schools target would be 67% in 2012-13, 69% in 2013-14, 71% in 2014-15, and so on.

Proficiency Targets Example


Example school ends at (at least) 85% proficient in subject Example school starts from 65% 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 years proficiency rate is not meeting the schools target Weighting is based on the schools 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 schools or districts 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

Accountable Proficient versus Proficient


Students considered proficient are For True Proficiency purposes: Performance Level 1 or 2 vs. 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 districts 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/districts 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 Michigans educators will be evaluated using measures of student growth and the results of these evaluations will be reported into MDEs 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/districts % points received and apply it the color scale: Green: pts >85% Orange: 50%<pts<60% Light Green: 70%<pts<85% Red: pts<50% Yellow:: 60%<pts<70%

Point Values by Color for Each Target Area

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 # Possible Pts = % Points Received

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, schools overall color now becomes yellow.
