End-of-Course Improvement Indicator

Description

The content indicators in the Indicators Met measure only include first-time test-takers’ performance, while the End-of-Course Improvement Indicator measures performance and improvement for tests that students retake. This provides long-term trends and a true picture of initial performance levels toward district and school goals. 

Highlighting how districts and schools are performing on retakes in particular will shed light on efforts to provide remediation or other supports for students who did not score proficient or higher on the initial administration of the respective end-of-course tests. Students who already have scored proficient are not included in the indicator in order to prevent any unintended incentives to have those students take additional tests. 

Technical Fact

All retaken tests with initial scores of 1 or 2 (out of 5) will be included in the calculation denominator. Improving one or more levels will count as ‘1’ in the numerator; and ‘0.3’ bonus points will be awarded for improving two or more levels.
