Slide1:  GAEL Summer Conference 2006 Georgia’s Single Statewide Accountability System AYP, Accountability, and Cross Agency Collaboration Slide2:  No Child Left Behind Act Each State shall… Develop and implement a single statewide accountability system that will be effective in ensuring that all local educational agencies and public schools make adequate yearly progress. Slide3:  Georgia Code 20-14-26 To create with the approval of the SBOE, a performance-based accountability system To establish indicators of performance Rate schools and systems Develop annual report cards Develop a single statewide accountability system for schools and systems incorporating federal law, rules, and regulations Slide4:  Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) Approved by the State Board of Education July 14, 2005 SBOE Rules Chapter 160-7-1: SSAS 160-7-1-.01 Definitions 160-7-1-.02 Accountability Profile 160-7-1-.03 Awards and Consequences 160-7-1-.04 Slide5:  ACCOUNTABILITY PROFILE Slide6:  Award Structure: Performance Index Criteria Slide7:  State of Georgia Governor’s Office of Student Achievement 2006 PLATINUM AWARD Greatest Gain Meeting and Exceeding Standards Sonny Perdue Martha Reichrath, Ph.D. Kathy Cox Governor of Georgia Executive Director State Superintendent of Schools Governor’s Office of Student Achievement Slide8:  Georgia’s AYP Determination Steps Participation at 95% in reading/English language arts and math based on students continuously enrolled during state testing window; Academic performance in reading/English language arts and math based on Full Academic Year (FAY) students; Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) Absolute Bar Confidence Interval Multi-year Average Safe Harbor Federal Flexibility for schools and districts not making AYP based solely on SWD group scores (approved for 2006 AYP) Second Indicator; Menu of Indicators for Elementary & Middle Schools Graduation Rate for High Schools 2005-2006 Amendment Approved: Hurricane Subgroup :  2005-2006 Amendment Approved: Hurricane Subgroup For the 2005-2006 school year, each school and school district has been using a series of 900 codes to identify students displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Data from these displaced students will be included in a newly created displaced Hurricane subgroup. Only this subgroup’s Test Participation Rate will be included in the school, system, and state AYP determinations. Georgia’s minimum subgroup size of 40 for participation rate calculations also applies to Hurricane subgroups. Georgia will report achievement for the displaced students’ subgroup at the state and system levels just like other subgroups on its 2006 State Report Card. Slide12:  Federal Calculation Steps for Determining the SWD Proxy Percent Determine the percent of SWD assessed within the State. (138,954 SWD divided by 1,106,615 = 12.5%) Divide 2% by the percentage of SWD assessed. (2% divided by 12.5% = 15.9 rounded to 16%) Add the proxy percent (16%) to the original percent proficient/advanced for SWD for any subject reading/English language arts and/or math that falls below the state AMO. Determine if the proxy percent is equal to or greater than the State AMO. http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2005/04/04072005.html QCC-based Assessments to GPS-based Assessments:  QCC-based Assessments to GPS-based Assessments Equipercentile Amendment:  Equipercentile Amendment Slide15:  Minimum Number Amendment Began with 2004-2005 AYP Determinations On June 14, 2005, US ED approved Georgia’s request to adjust the minimum group size. The minimum number adjustment allows AYP groups to be more proportional to the overall student population in AYP grades. Group N size = 40 or 10% of students enrolled in AYP grades, whichever is greater (with a 75 student cap) for AMO and Second Indicator calculations only. Note: The minimum number for Participation Rate remains at 40 or more students. Graduation Rate Amendment:  Graduation Rate Amendment Beginning last school year (2004-2005) : Schools and systems included summer graduates after 12th grade. Beginning 2005-2006 school year: Schools and systems can, on a case by case basis (with documentation), count LEP/ELL students in their high school graduation rate if these students graduate with a regular diploma within 5 years and a summer. Enhanced GHSGT Performance Levels for AYP Purposes:  Enhanced GHSGT Performance Levels for AYP Purposes Mathematics Basic: Scale scores 400 to 515 Proficient: Scale scores 516 to 524 Advanced: Scale scores 525 to 600 Language Arts Basic: Scale scores 400 to 510 Proficient: Scale scores 511 to 537 Advanced: Scale scores 538 to 600 Slide23:  Menu of Second Indicators for Elementary/Middle Schools Meet or exceed standard or show progress from the preceding year Selection in effect for 2004-2005, 2005-2006, and 2006-2007 Attendance: 15% or less of students absent more than 15 days or show progress Percent Meeting/Exceeding: CRCT Science – 80% or show progress CRCT Social Studies – 80% or show progress Percent Exceeding: CRCT Reading – 35% or show progress CRCT English Language Arts – 15% or show progress CRCT Mathematics – 15% or show progress CRCT Science – 15% or show progress CRCT Social Studies – 15% or show progress (Standards subject to revision as a result of data analysis from assessments aligned with GPS.) For Elementary and Middle Schools Selecting Attendance as a Second Indicator :  For Elementary and Middle Schools Selecting Attendance as a Second Indicator Attendance Rate Criteria: Schools or systems with 15% or less of students absent more than 15 days or show progress over the previous year will meet the Second Indicator. To show progress for attendance a school or LEA must reduce the percentage of students absent more than 15 days from the previous year. Attendance Rate Explanation: Students in AYP grade levels who miss more than 15 days while enrolled at any time in school A will be included in school A's Attendance Rate formula. The days a student misses in another school is not added to school A’s rate. Attendance Rate Calculation: Attendance rate is calculated by dividing the number of students in AYP grade levels who were absent more than 15 days by the total number of students in AYP grade levels. Georgia’s Graduation Rate :  Georgia’s Graduation Rate Georgia’s Graduation Rate Standard: Schools and districts must be at or above a 60% Graduation Rate or show progress from the preceding year. Current Graduation Rate Calculation: (worksheet available on www.gaosa.org) Numerator: # of students who graduate with regular diplomas Denominator: # of dropouts in 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th from appropriate years + graduates + other completers Georgia’s Graduation Rate: 2002 = 61.8 % 2005 = 69.4% 2003 = 63.3 % 2006 = 69.5% (as of 7/14) 2004 = 65.4% Fast Facts:  Fast Facts Students with Disabilities (SWD): SWD who receive Special Education Services at any time during the school year are included in the SWD group for AYP purposes. Science and AYP: NCLB requires that states develop academic content standards in science by 2005-06 and aligned assessments based on those standards by 2007-08. The science assessments must be administered at least once in each of three grade spans: 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12. We are required to have Science assessments for the 07-08 school year but it is unclear whether they will become part of AYP or not. (NCLB Act: section 1111 (K) Fast Facts:  Fast Facts Confidence Interval: A statistical calculation used to provide more confidence in the data. (The critical z is 1.645 for a population proportion, which means the programs are running a one-tail test at the 95% level of significance.) This application allows one to establish a measure of certainty regarding whether a calculation/percentage is characteristic of a school/system. A table is created to indicate an adjusted Annual Measurable Objective (AMO) based on group size. The smaller the group, the larger the adjustment. In comparison, if you were conducting a survey, the confidence you have in the conclusions you might draw from the results depends on the number of participants in the survey.
