Gap Closing Component

The Gap Closing component shows how well schools are meeting the performance expectations for our most vulnerable populations of students in English language arts, math and graduation, so that all of Ohio’s students can be successful.

Description

Schools must close the gaps that exist in the achievement between groups of students that may be based on income, race, ethnicity or disability. This component shows how well schools are meeting performance expectations for our most vulnerable students in English language arts, math and graduation.

It compares the academic performance of nine student groups against the performance of a 10th group, all students in Ohio.

Technical Fact

A district or school cannot receive an A if one of its groups is not reaching the annual goal for all students. The goals for all student groups are called Annual Measurable Objectives. A grade is assigned after a review of the results of all 10 student groups in English language arts, math and graduation rate and for efforts to close the achievement gaps in the following groups of students:

  • All Students
  • American Indian/Alaskan Native
  • Asian/Pacific Islander
  • Black, Non-Hispanic
  • Hispanic
  • Multiracial
  • White, Non-Hispanic
  • Economically Disadvantaged
  • Students with Disabilities
  • Limited English Proficiency
