Accountability Report Example

Elementary/Middle Level ELA

Elem/Middle Level Performance
• According to the Accountability Report our
district did not meet AYP for ELA at the
Elem/Middle Level for All Students, White, or
SWD categories for 2011-2012
• There are large numbers of Students Scoring
Level 2 not on track to proficiency
• How did this happen?
How is On track to Proficiency
 Accountability Determinations FAQ April 2013 document #1 to #11
 http://www.p12.nysed.gov/accountability/documents/2011-
 Which students get a student growth percentile and on-track designation?
 Students in grades 4 through 7 receive a growth percentile and on-
track designation, except for those students noted in Question 6.
Students in grade 3 and 8 cannot receive an on-track designation and
their performance is included in the PI based solely on their
achievement level (i.e. Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, or Level 4).

Why do some students not have an
on-track designation?
• Students who are Level 3 or 4 in the current or prior year do not receive an on-track
• Students missing one or both assessment scores necessary to calculate growth
between two years;
• Students in grade 3 do not receive a growth percentile or designation because there
is no baseline assessment score from which to calculate growth;
• Students in grade 8 are not considered for on track to proficiency because this is the
horizon for the designation, meaning students are either proficient or not in grade 8;
• Students with atypical grade progressions (students who skip or are retained in grade)
are not included in growth percentile calculations
o A student who is retained in grade cannot receive an on-track designation for the year
in which the student was retained in grade (e.g., a student who as enrolled in the same
grade in both 2010-11 and 2011-12 cannot get an on-track designation for 2011-12.)
o A student who skips a grade cannot receive an on-track designation for the year in
which the student skipped the grade (e.g., a student who was in grade 4 in 2010-11 and
grade 6 in 2011-12).
How do we see these students?
• To identify students who are considered on
track and not on track in 2011-12, review the
Accountability Verification Reports available in
the Level 2 Reporting (L2RPT) environment.
For information on how to access these
reports in L2RPT, see IRS - Level 2 Reports.

One way to Analyze
• In looking at these students figure out which ones
are in this category based on the criteria of three
years of data.
• To do this mark students who are in grades 3 and
• Mark students who have fewer than 3
• The rest should get AIS.
• Do the same for Level 1 Not on track to
One way to Analyze
• Go back and look at the 3rd and 8th grade
students and place them in AIS based on their
performance on this year’s assessment (Level
1 and 2).
• Review the atypical students who have missed
an assessment and use prior scores to
determine AIS needs.
– The bottom line is that you have to look at each
student and ask “Will AIS help the student move
into the on track to proficiency category?”
– This process needs to involve educators who know
your students.
– You can’t give AIS to all the students in the “Not
on track to proficiency category” as it is too costly!
