The Accountability Scorecard report shows federally required school and district accountability ratings under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). Michigan received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education in 2012 that allowed for the development of a new reporting system for school performance. The new Michigan School Accountability Scorecards incorporate many of the same student achievement measures used for determining Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as well as a few new measures.
The data are important because they represent the official determination of school status. Up to five components make up a School or District Accountability Scorecard:
Scorecards use a color coding system in place of an AYP status. In order of highest color to lowest, they are: Green, Lime, Yellow, Orange, and Red. Colors are based on meeting targets in the different Scorecard components. Missing targets in some components will automatically lower the overall Scorecard color even if the school or district is meeting all other targets.
A three color coding scheme is used for proficiency, attendance, and graduation. Green represents meeting a specific target, yellow represents meeting an improvement target, and red represents not meeting the target nor improvement target.
A two color coding scheme is used for educator evaluations, compliance factors, and participation. Green represents meeting the component requirements, and red represents not meeting the component requirements.
Exploring the Accountability Scorecard report can answer questions such as:
Did all of the students at the school or district participate in state assessments?
Use these settings in Edit Report: Select a School or School District. When your report appears, select By Subject, then scroll down to the Participation Detail section for each subject. The display will show the number of students enrolled, the number assessed, and the percent of enrolled students assessed. The display will also note whether the selected school or district met the requirement that 95% of enrolled students participate in state assessment.
Was student achievement high enough or improving to meet the targets set for the school or district?
Use these settings in Edit Report: Select a School or School District. When your report appears, select By Subject, then scroll down to the Proficiency Detail section for each subject. The display will show the number of Full Academic Year (FAY) students assessed, the number of students scoring proficient on state assessments, and the percent of FAY students proficient. The display will also note whether the selected school or district met the proficiency target.
Did the school or district meet the Attendance Rate and Scorecard Completion Rate targets?
Use these settings in Edit Report: Select a School or School District. When your report appears, the columns on the right of the screen in the Scorecard display will display a color-coded status noting whether the Attendance Rate and Scorecard Completion Rate targets were met.
How many of the Scorecard Targets were met by the school or district?
Use these settings in Edit Report: Select a School or School District. The Scorecard display will the number and percentage of “points” met by the selected school or district.
