How is a school's overall rating calculated?
Performance Categories

The school ratings are composed of a combination of multiple measures included to calculate an overall score for each school in Iowa. Each of the measures gets calcuated as a value between 0 and 100 and is then multiplied by a weight amount, producing a percentage score for each measure. The weighting is the value assigned to each indicator. The score for each measure is determined and then all measures are added together to create an overall score.

 
 


Proficiency

100
50
What percent of students meet or exceed proficiency targets?

Proficiency describes a school's success at meeting minimally sufficient performance level benchmarks, in the subjects of Reading, Mathematics, or a combination of both

The chart at left combines Reading and Math across the prior two years, to provide a stable picture of school proficiency performance. Districts and schools assess students annually in these two key subject areas.

 
 


Closing Gap (FRL, IEP, and ELL)
1
100
50
Is progress being made in closing the achievement gaps for students participating in FRL, IEP and and/or FRL?

Closing the achievement gap provides a measure which reflects the statewide goal of having all students improve, while narrowing the performance gap for students who are eligible for Free-or-Reduced Priced Lunch (FRL), or students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP), and/or students participating in the English Language Learners (ELL) program.

 


NEW: This measure is not currently part of a school’s overall rating but has been included to provide additional information about the achievement gap between race/ethnic groups.
Closing Gap (Minority student, within school comparison)

Is progress being made in closing the achievement gaps for students of color?

Closing the achievement gap provides a measure which reflects the statewide goal of having all students improve, while narrowing the performance gap for nonwhite students who have a history of performing below their white counterparts.

Is progress being made in closing the achievement gaps between students of color and the state average for white students?

Closing the achievement gap provides a measure which reflects the statewide goal of having all students improve, while narrowing the performance gap for nonwhite students who have a history of performing below their white state counterparts.

 
 

College and Career Ready Growth

What is the percent of students that are growing each year toward college and career readiness?

'CCR growth is defined as the percentage of students who are on a trajectory to be college and career ready by the end of high school. This growth measure sets a rigorous and attainable expectation that all students will make progress each year toward college and career readiness. A composite is created using reading and mathematics growth across the prior two years to provide a stable view of the percent of students growing toward college and career readiness.';

 
 

Annual Expected Growth

What is the percent of students achieving a year of academic growth in a year’s time?

The CCR metric indicates the proportion of students that met milestones in reading and mathematics that predict higher probably of post-secondary success. Results from the prior two years are used to create a stable view of CCR. The CCR metric works hand in hand with CCR Growth to ensure students are making progress year to year (CCR growth) to reach a level of performance which predicts probable post-secondary success (CCR metric).

What is the percent of students that are at or above a college readiness benchmark?

The CCR metric indicates the proportion of students that met milestones in reading and mathematics that predict higher probably of post-secondary success. Results from the prior two years are used to create a stable view of CCR. The CCR metric works hand in hand with CCR Growth to ensure students are making progress year to year (CCR growth) to reach a level of performance which predicts probable post-secondary success (CCR metric).

 
 

Graduation Rate
1
100
50
What percent of students complete high school in five-years?

This measures reports the percentage of ninth grade student who complete high school five years later. The ACR graduation rate combines two cohorts of students and reports the percentage that complete high school within five years. A five year rate is used because the vast majority of students, including general education or special education students, are able to complete within a five year timeline.

 
 

Attendance
1
100
50
What is the average daily attendance of students?

This measure shows the overall daily attendance of students for this school. This metric examines the total number of days students were enrolled and present divided by the total number of days possible. Students are unable to progress academically if they are not present each day.

 
 

Staff Retention
1
100
50
What percentage of licensed staff are retained

This metric reports the percentage of teachers, administrators and other licensed professionals who are employed in the same school building through out two consecutive academic years. The Report Card measure combines the overall retention rates of the two most recent years to illustrate the amount of staff turnover which occurs over time. Multiple years are used to minimize any fluctuation which might occur by using only one year of data.'

To accurately calculate an Iowa School Report Card rating, an individual school must have at least 60 percent of the performance measures' total weight. There are generally three reasons why a school may have insufficient data for a performance measure rating:

  1. A school with fewer than 20 students in a specific category will fail to meet minimum group size requirements for reporting student data. These requirements are in place to protect the personally identifiable information of individuals under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. A minimum threshold of 10 is required for the Staff Retention measure.
  2. A school that is new may lack the multiple years of data required to compile a rating.
  3. A school with a grade configuration that prevents it from being measured by the Iowa School Report Card (an early childhood center, for example).

The table below lists the weight values of the eight performance measures for the school type. An "N/A" in the third column indicates that this school provided insufficient data for that measure.

This school's total Weight measures totals less than 60 percent, resulting in an "Unable to Rate".
