Annual Reports

The column labeled “Target” is what the state determines schools should earn.  The column labeled “Actual” is what we scored.  Lighter color means we met or exceeded and darker color means we did not.

 

The column labeled 2014-2015 provides scores from our first year.  Please note that we struggled in 5th grade that year (although our scores still exceed local scores in most all areas and state as well!), but we made specific changes to the 5th grade team structure moving to a departmentalized approach enabling teachers to teach to their areas of strength. 

 

The column labeled 2015-2016 are the scores from last year, our second year.  Please note a big difference in scores in the 5th grade from one year to the next.  You can track a group of students by moving down a grade each year.  For example, the scores for 4th grade in 14-15 showed growth in those particular students in 15-16 when they became 5th graders as an example. 

 

You can see that in 2015-16 we met all of our targets although we dipped slightly in scores in 6th grade from one year to the next; however, the 6th grade students in the 15-16 column improved their scores from the 14-15 school year in all areas,  especially in social studies.

 

Eighth grade social studies was below the target in 14-15 but met the target in 15-16.

 

End of Course testing was strong both years, especially in geometry.

 

In the area of CCRPI in 2014-2015, we met the target for junior high (middle) but not grammar (elementary).  This impacted us on the “Beat the Odds” portion of the report we believe.

This information starting in black above is based on 2014-2015 school year.  You will note that our single score was 67.8 (A).  The state predicted we would score 66.21(B) so we beat that score.  The low end of their prediction was 63.92(c) so we beat that score.  The High end of their prediction was 68.5(D) so we are .7 points from beating that score.  Thus, according to the DOE, we did not beat the odds on the “confidence level.”  A confidence interval is a pre-determined span of values with a low end and a high end.   In this case, we could have scored as low as 63.92 or as high as 68.5 and in order to “Beat the Odds” we had to score on the higher end which we did not. 

We want ACE parents to recognize the value of the work our Scholars are doing on the actual tests over the two year period and have confidence in the ACE Faculty.   While we don’t focus on data for the sake of data, we do use it to guide and improve our instructional methods which is how we determined the change needed in the 14-15 year and has driven other decisions as we have tweaked our practices.
