Gifted Indicator

The Gifted Indicator reflects identification of, and service to, gifted students and how well they are performing and progressing academically. The Gifted Indicator will be reported on the 2014 Report Card and then incorporated into the graded measure, Indicators Met, on the 2015 Report Card.

Overview

To meet the Gifted Indicator, a district or school must meet a minimum threshold on all three parts of the indicator. Thresholds are scheduled to increase over time.
 

PERFORMANCE

  • Gifted Performance Index: A numerical index based on gifted students’ achievement levels on state tests, paired by test subject and academic area of giftedness (also includes superior cognitive) for students in grades 4-8 and 10.

PROGRESS

  • Gifted Value-Added: The letter grade representing the amount of growth for gifted students on state tests, paired by test subject (reading and mathematics, only) and area of giftedness (also includes superior cognitive) for students in grades 4-8.

INPUTS

  • Gifted Identification: The number of students identified as gifted in any of the seven areas of giftedness expressed as a percentage of total enrollment.

  • Gifted Served: The number of students receiving gifted services expressed as a percentage of all students identified as gifted.

  • Input Point Total: A point system will calculate total inputs based on identification and service within gifted area sets, student subgroups, and grade bands (see details in Board Resolution).

Related data at the district and school level can be found on the Gifted Data page within the Achievement component of the grade card.
