K-3 Literacy - New Report Card Measure


The K-3 Literacy Measure will appear on Ohio’s A-F Report Card in 2014. This grade answers the question—are more students learning to read in kindergarten through third grade? The 2014 report card will report some results. The 2015 report card will display one grade for kindergarten through grade 3. This component uses results from the fall reading diagnostics and the third-grade Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) to measure the improvement schools and districts are making moving students from “not-on-track” to “on-track” and eventually proficient. The measure looks at which students are not-on-track on the kindergarten diagnostic and gives credit for those students who improve to on-track following the first-grade diagnostic. Similarly, it measures improvement from first- to second-grade diagnostics, second- to third-grade diagnostics and from the third-grade diagnostic to the third-grade achievement assessment.
