Achievement Component for Career Tech Schools

The Achievement component has two measures – Technical Skill Attainment and Performance Index. Technical Skill Attainment shows the proportion of students passing technical assessments. These assessments measure the skills and knowledge learned in a student’s career-technical program. The calculation for the Performance Index for Career-Technical Planning Districts is similar to the Performance Index for traditional report cards

What is being graded?

  1. The percent of students who participate in technical assessments;
  2. The percent of students who pass the technical assessments; and
  3. The percent of students who met the state standard by scoring proficient or higher on the required state tests. 

Questions to ask

  • Which career-technical centers, similar to ours, are doing better than we are? What are they doing?
  • What help do our students need to pass assessments?
  • What are we doing to increase participation? 

How are the two measures graded?

Component Grade: Technical Skill Attainment Rate 75%25 Indicators Met 25%25

The Technical Skill Attainment Rate reflects the proportion of students who passed the technical tests in their career-tech programs. The passage rate only includes students who took tests.

The Performance Index measures every student’s level of achievement. The higher the student’s level, the more points the Career- Technical Planning District earns toward its index. 

Note: In 2019, Technical Skill Attainment Rate will account for 100 percent of the Achievement component grade. The Performance Index will be reported but will not contribute to the grade until the 2020 report card.
