2014 Accountability: Summarizing Some Impressive Results

PrichBlog now has a six-part summary of the strong 2014 statewide accountability results released earlier today, including:
  • Overall scores are up more than four points for all three levels of schools
  • Achievement and gap group results showed consistent improvement.
  • Growth results, with an explanation of why those scores will stay very close to 60 over time.
  • Readiness results are up for middle schools and up more for high schools.
  • Graduation rates are up, whether a four-year or a five-year rate is used.
  • Program review results now average at the fully proficient level for all three subjects at all three levels.
For each school and district, school report cards are also available, using this link and then choosing the reports you want to see.

Overall, it's quite a good year.  Naturally, there's still a great deal of work ahead, and in a few hours, I'll start working on understanding how the new results relate to  classic PrichBlog concerns.  I'll share as I learn.
