How This Report Helps You
The Value-Added report enables you to select data of interest, assess trends over time, and compare results. Use the filters on the left to explore growth and achievement data. Depending on the assessment, achievement is reported in Normal Curve Equivalents (NCEs) or scale scores and does not reflect proficiency level.
For step-by-step instructions on using the filters, see Interacting with the Report.
About Value-Added Reports
School Value-Added reports provide reliable measures of the average academic growth a school's students made in each tested grade and subject or course. The growth measures indicate how successful the school was in helping students meet expected growth. The value-added reports can help educators identify relative strengths and areas of concern across grades and subjects. When sufficient data is available, the reports include three years of growth measures and a three-year average growth measure. Examining patterns and trends across years can offer important insights into the effectiveness of the school's programs.
It's important to view the value-added reports in conjunction with the diagnostic reports, which display patterns of growth for groups of students at different achievement levels.
How We Measure Growth
The model we use to calculate growth measures depends on the sequence of assessments administered. Concept of Growth provides complete descriptions of the models.
This analytic model is used for subjects that are assessed in consecutive grades.
- K-2 assessments
- EOG reading in grades 3 through 8
- EOG math in grades 4 through 8
This analytic model is used for subjects that are not assessed in consecutive grades (in other words, when students move from one assessment type to another or when students take the assessment in different grades):
- EOG science in grades 5 and 8
- EOC Math 1, Math 3, biology, and English II
- NC Final Exams (teacher reports only)
- CTE post-assessments
- ACT, PSAT, and SAT
The Value-Added reports for ACT, PSAT, and SAT are intended to provide measures of how effective the school has been in the tested subject areas across grades, from the time students entered the school to the time they took the assessment. With that in mind, only EOG assessments are included in the students' testing histories in these analyses.
