Understanding the Report
If you don't have access to this report, it does not appear in your Reports menu.
All schools with data for the selected grade and subject or course are listed in the table. For each school, the table displays growth values for each achievement group from the School report. Values are displayed for the most recent year and for previous years, when available. In each cell in the table, the first value is the growth value. The value in parentheses is the number of students in that achievement group.
The table is color-coded based on whether the data suggests the group of students exceeded, met, or fell short of expected growth, on average.
Growth Measure Compared to Expected Growth
At least one standard error above
Moderate evidence that the group made more growth than expected.
Between one standard error above and one standard error below
Evidence that the group made growth as expected.
More than one standard error below
Moderate evidence that the group made less growth than expected.
Not enough students to generate a growth measure.
For more information about the achievement groups, growth values, and colors, see School Diagnostic: Understanding the Report.
By default, the schools in the table are listed alphabetically. You can sort the schools by the growth value for any group. To sort by the growth values for the most recent year, click the year link for the group you're interested in. To sort by the growth values for previous years, click the Prev link for the group you're interested in.
To view the data for a different test, subject, or grade, choose from the navigation tabs in the blue menu bar at the top of the report.
To view a school's report, click on the school's name in the table.
Filtering by Student Group
By default, the report includes all of the School's students in the selected grade and subject or course who had sufficient data to be included in the report. Use the Add Student Groups filter to view the report for a subset of students.
To filter the list of students included in the report, click Select Student Groups above the table. In the Student Groups window, you can choose any combination of race, gender, and demographic groups.
If you choose more than one group within a category, the report includes students who are in either group. For example, if you choose Black or African American and Hispanic, the report includes both Black/African American students and Hispanic students.
If you choose multiple groups across categories, the report includes only students who are in the selected groups in all categories. For example, if you choose Male and Students with Disabilities, the report includes only boys who are identified as students with disabilities.
When you are finished making selections, click Submit. The report includes only those groups of students you selected.
Even when viewing a filtered group of students, placement of students into the achievement groups is still based on students' relative achievement to students statewide in the selected grade and subject or course.
