SDC Summary Reports Release Notes

Changes:
Two new reports will are available:
  • The old reports "Indicators & Rating" and "Performance Index Summary" have been merged into a new "Achievement" report that aligns with the Achievement component of the new Report Card.
  • "Graduation Rates" is a new report that aligns with the Graduation Rate component of the new Report Card.

Two additional reports are still in development:

  • "Gap Closing" is a new report that aligns with the Gap Closing component of the new Report Card.  This report is still being worked on and will be available later this week. 
  • The Progress components of the new Report Card are still in development and will be published later in the summer, as availability of Value Added data approaches.
Corrected Issues:
None.
 
Known Issues Being Researched:
The new additional performance level for accelerated students for the performance index has not been implemented yet.  When implemented, this process will increase the performance level of an accelerated student who scores proficient or higher by one performance level for the performance index calculation.  If the student scored at the “Advanced” performace level the student’s level would be increased to a new category (Advanced Plus) for the purpose of calculating the performance index.
