Resources and Technical Documents

The Office of Accountability released a new guide “Understanding Student Placement for Ohio’s Differentiated Accountability systems.” This expanded guide includes the Where Kids Count Methodology as well as definitions and business rules for the Traditional Report Card, the Career Technical Planning District report card, and Dropout Prevention and Recovery Community School Report Card. 
Below are resources on how to read and use the report cards, as well as technical documentation on how the calculations work. In order to calculate a report card for each school, district and Career Technical Planning District, several accountability rules must apply.  

Report Card Disclaimers and Release Notes are available on a rolling basis. 

 

Traditional School and District Report Cards

Districts and schools report information for the Ohio School Report Cards on specific measures within six broader components. The components are Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Early Literacy, Graduation, and College, Career, Workforce and Military Readiness (CCWMR). Districts and schools earn a star rating on the components and an overall star rating. This helps give Ohio parents and schools a snapshot of the quality of education they are providing to students. The complete technical document for the Traditional School Report Card walks through each component and calculation. For more information, overview and detailed documents are available at the links below.
