The Annual Education Report (AER) provides the public with detailed
information on teacher quality, student assessment and accountability for
schools, districts, and the state in one convenient place.
The data are important because it both provides public transparency of
educational reporting and helps school districts easily package all of the
required data elements needed for federal reporting in one location, to save
valuable time and resources.
The Annual Education Report is designed to meet the federal requirements of
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act for annual reporting. For this
report, CEPI provides all of the information on teacher quality, student
assessment and accountability for schools, districts and the state as well as
National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) information. You can search
by entity (school, district, intermediate school district, and statewide). You
can select each of these four reports:
NAEP report. The NAEP, commonly referred to as
"the Nation's Report Card," is another important assessment tool used
to determine student progress. NAEP administers a state level assessment in
mathematics and reading every two years. The most current results are from the
year 2015. NAEP and M-STEP have different assessment frameworks, and define
their performance level descriptions differently, so they can't be directly
compared. NAEP is administered in the winter; M-STEP is administered in the
spring. NAEP data is reported at the state level only. The NAEP report is the
same for all Michigan school districts and provides a benchmark showing how
Michigan students performed on national performance standards.
You can easily link to, print with
cover letter, and distribute these reports to fulfill all annual education
report requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) until
the full implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). To fulfill
the state's requirements for an annual education report, the district and
schools must add the following components:
The status of school improvement plan
A description of each specialized school
The status of core curriculum implementation
Information about locally administered
Parent-Teacher conference data
Postsecondary and/or college accredited
courses and dual enrollment
Most of these data are locally
generated and can be addressed in the AER cover letters to fulfill both the
federal and state requirements in a single report. For more information about the 2016-17 Annual Education Report, please refer to this memo from the Michigan Department of Education.
