    progress on specific benchmarks
  • To provide Differentiated Accountability schools
    with a reliable and valid assessment tool for
    state progress reporting

25
Overview of the Interim Assessment Program
  • Interim Assessment tests administered three
    times per year fall, winter, and spring

Performance Levels
Satisfactory Progress This student demonstrated a satisfactory level of achievement on the content focus of the Florida Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level.
Limited Progress This student demonstrated a limited level of achievement on the content focus of the Florida Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive targeted interventions and remediation in the areas of concern, and continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level.
Insufficient Progress This student demonstrated an insufficient level of achievement on the content focus of the Florida Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive intensive interventions and remediation in the areas of concern, and continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level.
Students who are likely to score in FCAT levels 3
and above
Students whose performance was not sufficient to
predict success.
Students who are likely to score below FCAT level

Comprehensive English Language Learners (CELLA)
  • Felicia Mallory, Executive Director
  • Denetra Collins, Staff Specialist

31
Overview of CELLA
  • CELLA is a four-skill English language assessment
    measuring student proficiency in listening,
    speaking, reading, and writing.
  • Listening, Reading, and Writing are administered
    in groups
  • Speaking is administered on a one-on-one basis
  • Kindergarten students are assessed in all four
    areas on a one-to-one basis.
  • CELLA is not a timed test.

32
Purposes of CELLA
  • The test results can provide
  • Data useful for charting student progress over
    time,
  • Diagnostically useful information about students
    strengths and weaknesses in English,
  • The language proficiency levels of individual
    students can be used in making decisions
    regarding placement into, or exit from English
    for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) programs,
  • Identifying the proper ESOL level, and
  • Determining whether Annual Measureable
    Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) have been met.

33
Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs)
AMAO 1 Progressing in English language acquisition annual increases in the number or percentage of students making progress in learning English
AMAO 2 Exiting or reaching English language proficiencyannual increases in the number or percentage of students attaining English language proficiency by the end of each school year
AMAO 3 ELL-Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)AYP for the ELL subgroup in demonstrating proficiency on grade-level in reading and mathematics on the FCAT

66
Participation in Accelerated Coursework
Proposed Calculation
Numerator Denominator
9th-12th graders that completed an accelerated exam or dual enrollment course during the academic year (weighted) All 11th-12th graders
  • For a school to receive credit for participation
    in an accelerated course that ends in an exam
    (e.g., AP, IB, AICE), the student must take the
    exam.
  • For dual enrollment, a student must earn a grade
    in the course for a school to receive credit for
    participation.
  • For industry certification, a student must have
    taken an industry certification exam on the SBE
    approved Industry Certification Funding List
    for the year.
  • To help ensure that 9th and 10th graders taking
    acceleration exams/courses are prepared to take
    those exams/courses, schools will only receive
    participation credit for 9th and 10th graders who
    successfully complete the acceleration (pass the
    AP, IB, and/or AICE exam, pass the dual
    enrollment course, pass the industry
    certification exam).

67
Accelerated Coursework
  • Weighting for Performance in Accelerated
    Coursework
  • Measure will be based on credits earned.
  • Depending on their score on AP, IB, and/or AICE,
    students will receive weight in the formula based
    on the number of postsecondary courses for which
    the student earns credit as determined by the
    Articulation Coordinating Committees
    Credit-by-Exam Equivalencies List.

Postsecondary Readiness
Proposed Calculation
Numerator Denominator
Number of students scoring ready on SAT, ACT, and/or CPT any time during their high school careers On-time high school graduates who scored a Level 3 or higher on the 10th Grade FCAT in Reading or Mathematics (depending on component)
  • Separate Measures for Reading and Math.
  • If student takes multiple tests (ACT, SAT, or
    CPT), the students highest score by subtest is
    used.
  • The scores used to define ready are set in
    State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.0315, F.A.C.
  • This measure will be based on all on-time
    standard high school graduates beginning no later
    than 2011-12.

Growth or Decline in components
  • Schools earn an escalating number of points based
    on the magnitude of their improvement.
  • Additional points would be awarded based on the
    number of points the school improved (growth from
    prior year) up to 20 additional points.
  • Schools will lose 5 points if a component
    declines by at least 10 percentage points.
  • EXAMPLES
  • GROWTH A schools acceleration performance
    improves from 25 to 32 the school earns an
    additional 7 points resulting in a total of 39
    points (32 7).
  • DECLINE A schools acceleration performance
    declines from 30 to 20 the school would lose
    an additional 5 points resulting in a total of 15
    points (20 5).
