The Achievement component represents the number of students who passed the state tests and how well they performed on them. This component includes three additional performance indicators —the Chronic Absenteeism Improvement Indicator, End-of-Course Improvement Indicator and Gifted Indicator.
The Performance Index measures the achievement of every student, not just whether or not they reach “proficient.” Districts and schools receive points for every student’s level of achievement. The higher the student’s level, the more points the school earns toward its index. This rewards districts and schools that improve the performance of highest- and lowest-performing students.
The Indicators Met measure represents student performance on state tests. It is based on a series of up to 23 state tests that measure the percent of students proficient or higher in a grade and subject. Districts and schools also are evaluated on the Chronic Absenteeism Improvement Indicator, End-of-Course Improvement Indicator and Gifted Indicator, giving districts and schools up to 26 possible indicators.

Performance Index score: The level of achievement for each student on each state test. The possible levels are Advanced, Accelerated, Proficient, Basic and Limited.
Indicators Met score: How many students show “Proficient” knowledge on state tests in each grade and subject, and how many students meet the benchmarks established on the three additional indicators. In other words, how many students have met or exceeded the basic expectations.
