Key term: Academic Index results on a 0-140 scale

In Kentucky test score data, the Academic Index is a number on a 0-140 scale that sums up how all students performed on all seven Core Content subjects.

An Index of 100 is equivalent to average student performance being proficient, but may include some students at the distinguished level and some at the novice and apprentice levels.

An Index of 140 would mean all students performed at the distinguished level in all subjects.

The Academic Index is the best single number for comparing the performance of different student groups and getting an overview of achievement gap issues.
