Achievement Component for Career Tech Schools

The Achievement component has two measures – Technical Skill Attainment and Indicators Met. 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 Indicators Met is the same as the Indicators Met for traditional report cards

What is being graded?

  1. The percent of students who participate in technical assessments
    The percent of students who pass the technical assessments
    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%25The 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 Indicators Met measure represents student performance on state tests. It is based on a series of up to 14 state tests that measure the percent of students proficient or higher in a grade and subject. Schools and districts also are evaluated on the End-of-Course Improvement Indicator, giving districts and schools up to 15 possible indicators.
