Frequently Asked Questions


Can the 1-4 rubric include .5 (half points)?

After the June 11th Administrator Meeting it was decided that the use of half points would be allowable for reporting out. The following grade scale will be used district wide for reporting:       

                *   4.0 Advanced High       

                *   3.5 Advanced       

                *   3.0 Proficient High       

                *   2.5 Proficient       

                *   2.0 Partially Proficient High/Progressing       

                *   1.5 Partially Proficient       

                *   1.0 Unsatisfactory       

                *   .5 Unsatisfactory 

For the growth measures, a change of at least 1 proficiency level must be reached (ex. movement from Unsatisfactory to Partially Proficient). Proficiency levels have been noted by color above (red = Unsatisfactory, yellow=Partially Proficient, green=Proficient, blue=Advanced).

What if a student scores at the top of the rubric on the pre-assessment?

Students who score at the Advanced level (3.5 or 4.0) at the beginning of the year (baseline) will need to have a team meeting (to include the principal) in which measurable standards based goals are set for the student. The end of year meeting of these goals will equate to growth.

What about students who are being taught standards that are lower than grade-level standards?

Students who are on IEPs, NEPs or SRDs students for whom it is appropriate to modify the standards being taught, the “modified” process (enter into the gradebook an “M” for each standard noting that the standard is not the traditional grade-level standard being taught) will be used for Q0 as well as Q1-4. A grade according to the 4pt grade scale must also be entered into the gradebook. Example: gradebook for standard 1 might say “M3” noting a score of 3 on a modified standard. These modified standards being taught should be documented in students educational plans.

How will the 4pt scale be communicated to our parent community?

The explanation and communication to parents has been identified as one of the tasks that must happen at the beginning of the year. The means as to how it will be communicated has not yet been defined.

How will students' behavior be considered within the model?

This model is only a measure of student learning not behavior, therefore it will not be a factor that is considered. Rather this should be addressed within the procedures and processes of the school building.

Aren't schools with low achieving students penalized?

Although achievement is used as a calculation of the school performance framework (SPF), the majority of the points earned are from student growth measures. Additionally, the SPF is the measure that is used to provide the accreditation rating of each school therefore it is important that the school work together to improve the SPF as a collective effort. Additionally the use of the SPF meets the requirement that TCAP data must be used for areas that have this summative data.

How will this look for semester courses?

Growth will be measured from the beginning of the course to the end of a course. If the course is only a semester long a pre-assessment would be conducted at the beginning of the course (prior to instruction) and an end-of course status would be calculated based on the report card grades collected for the term of the course.

How much time will be given to administer the pre-assessment?

Elementary will complete the pre-assessments within two weeks. Secondary will complete the assessments prior to instruction occurring within the classroom.

How will my growth score be evaluated if I teach in two (or more) schools?

Your school performance framework and individual student growth scores would be proportioned based on the FTE allotment for each school.

How will this look for 10th and 11th grade (not standards based)?

SHS non standards based reporting classes will create a pre-assessment for each content area (course) based on the GLE/Standards of that course. Score the test on a 100 pt scale. The percentage of the final grade will be converted to the 4.0 scale which will be used as the baseline data. For the end of year score, a final exam that is standards based will be administered and scored on a 100 pt scale. The percentage of the final grade will be converted to the 4.0 scale which will be used as the"Q5". 11th & 12th will use the same "effectiveness" model as the rest of the schools in SSD. Proficiency level change will be determined by assessment percentage conversions (ie- 95=advanced, 85= proficient). SHS 11th & 12th will use the same SSD growth model (change in proficiency level range) as do the other schools in SSD with the difference being change on pre and post tests versus the inclusion of gradebook scores.
