More about the release of 10th grade FSAs, including school-level results

6/29/2015

Following up on our post from last week on the state’s release of preliminary district performance data on 2014-15 Algebra 1 and 10th grade ELA exams, below is a summary of some additional data on individual school performance that was released today.

 

As a reminder, please be sure to read our full blog post from last week on what these preliminary, equipercentile-linked scores do and do not mean as you consider the numbers below. It is important to interpret the results here strictly in context. In general, the data being released now can be used to gauge some degree of information about how schools did in transitioning to the new FSA assessments relative to other schools, but it should be clearly noted that these are not final "baseline" scores that will reflect how students did on the specific criteria of the new tests and which will be used to measure progress going forward.

 

Keeping this in mind is particularly important for trying to minimize confusion and discern between multiple sets of numbers when the “real” results are released several months from now.

 

Bearing that in mind, below are some overall summary updates on the performance of DCPS schools as per the state’s recent data release:
