STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Florida Statewide, Standardized Assessments

The Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) measure students’ mastery of the new Florida Standards and are administered to students in grades 3-10 in English language arts (ELA) and grades 3-8 in mathematics as well as in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 (2014-15). For ELA and mathematics assessments, the FSA replaced the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) 2.0 and Algebra 1 and Geometry End-of-Course (EOC) assessments aligned to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS). In science, Florida continues to administer the Statewide Science Assessment in grades 5 and 8 and the Biology 1 EOC assessment, aligned to the NGSSS (2013-14 and 2014-15).

Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA) for Students with Disabilities

The FAA is designed for students whose participation in the general statewide assessment (FSA and EOC) is not appropriate, even with accommodations. The FAA measures student academic performance on the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards Access Points (NGSSS-AP) in language arts (reading, writing), mathematics and science.

Accountability Assessment Results by Subject

Assessment results in the following tables reflect scores on FSA (2014-15) or NGSSS assessment data, as applicable, combined with FAA data for ELA results (2014-15) and for reading and writing results (2013-14). Beginning in 2014-15, Florida's state assessment in ELA included sections for both reading comprehension and writing. As of 2014-15, writing is no longer a stand-alone subject for state assessments, having been combined with reading for the state's ELA measure. For mathematics and science, results include FSA or NGSSS, FAA and EOC assessment results, as applicable. Results show satisfactory attainment for students who were in attendance during both semesters of the school year.

English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science Assessments

On EOC assessments and the FSA ELA and mathematics and NGSSS science tests, students can attain one of five possible achievement levels, ranging from Level 1 (lowest) to Level 5 (highest), with scores at Level 3 or higher designated as satisfactory. The FAA is scored on nine performance levels, with FAA Level 4 establishing the minimum level for satisfactory attainment.

ELL STUDENTS

Recently Arrived English Language Learners (ELLs)

Florida students in ESOL programs who have been in the U.S. less than one year are required to be tested on the Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment (CELLA) as well as on a state mathematics assessment, but may be exempt for up to one administration of the FSA in reading. These students’ test scores are not included in the current year’s proficiency calculations for math and reading as a flexibility provision approved for Florida by the U.S. Department of Education. The ESEA SPAR chart shows the number of recently arrived ELL students who are not included in the AMO mathematics and reading proficiency calculations for 2014-15.

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Below are the 2015 NAEP state results for grades 4 and 8 in reading and mathematics. Main NAEP, conducted at the state and national level, occurs every two years in reading and mathematics, every four years in science, and periodically in writing. A representative sample of the student population participates, and each student takes only a portion of the assessment. Results are then assembled to form projected state and national scores, based on aggregated student results. NAEP does not provide school- or student-level results.

1. Scale Scores

A scale score is derived from an averaging of scores of student responses to NAEP assessment items on a 0—500 point scale. Scale scores summarize the overall level of performance attained by a group of students. (NAEP does not produce scale scores for individual students.) When used in conjunction with interpretive aids, such as item maps, scale scores provide information about what a particular aggregate of students in the population knows and can do.

2. Achievement Level

Achievement levels are based on scale scores and define the degree to which student performance meets expectations of what students should know and be able to do. The achievement levels are Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Below Basic is also reported but not considered to be an achievement level.

The following chart compares the achievement levels between NAEP and the FSA:

FSA 2.0 Achievement
Levels
NAEP Achievement
Standards
5 Advanced
4 Proficient
2-3 Basic
1 Below Basic

NAEP Participation Rates for Required Subgroups

The chart below shows, for the sample of Florida schools selected to take the grade 04 and grade 08 math and reading assessments, the percentage of Students with Disabilities (SWDs) and English language learners (ELLs) in the tested grades who were tested on each assessment. The goal established by the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) is 85% inclusion.

Additional information is provided on the NAEP website at http://www.nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/ or on the FLDOE website at http://www.fldoe.org/asp/naep/.

International Surveys

Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS ) is an international comparative study of student performance in mathematics and science at the fourth- and eighth grade levels which is conducted every four years. It collects data on achievement, experiences, and attitudes of fourth and eighth-grade students in the United States and students in the equivalent grades in other participating countries, as well as information on classroom and school contexts. This study is administered every four years. Florida's objective is to meet the performance of the 10th ranked country.

Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) is an international comparative study conducted every five years of the reading literacy of young students. It collects data on the reading achievement, experiences, and attitudes of fourth-grade students in the United States and students in the equivalent of fourth grade in other participating countries, as well as information on students' classroom and school contexts. Florida's objective is to meet the performance of the 10th ranked country.

Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) conducted every three years is an international assessment that measures 15-year-old students' reading, mathematics, and science literacy. It assesses students' applied knowledge and skills to problems within a real-life context as they near the end of compulsory schooling. PISA makes the assumption that as students transition to adult life, they need not only to comprehend what they read or to retain particular mathematical formulas or scientific concepts, but also to know how to apply their knowledge and skills in the many different situations they will encounter in their everyday lives. Florida's objective is to meet the performance of the 10th ranked country.

Percentage of Teachers Teaching with Emergency or Provisional Credentials

Florida has no uncertified teachers, although some teachers may be temporarily assigned to areas outside of their field of specialization. Data on classes taught by teachers out-of-field is provided in the following table.

In-Field and Out-of-Field Teachers

The following chart shows the percentage of core academic classes taught by teachers teaching in-field compared to the percentage of classes taught by teachers teaching out-of-field. When a teacher in a district school system is assigned teaching duties in a class dealing with subject matter that is outside the field in which the teacher is certified, outside the field that was the applicant's minor field of study, or outside the field in which the applicant has demonstrated sufficient subject area expertise, as determined by district school board policy in the subject area to be taught, that teacher is teaching "out-of-field." Core academic subjects are English, reading, language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics, government, economics, arts, history and geography.

  School % District % State %
Percentage of Classes with Teachers Teaching In-Field 92.4 90.4 94.1
Percentage of Classes with Teachers Teaching Out-of-Field 7.6 9.6 5.9

Classes Not Taught by Highly Qualified Teachers

The chart below shows the percentage of classes not taught by "Highly Qualified Teachers" in core academic subjects as defined in federal statute. A highly qualified teacher has earned at least a bachelor's degree and holds a Florida teaching certificate with appropriate certification for each core academic area of assignment. Core academic subjects are English, reading, language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics, government, economics, arts, history and geography.

  School % District % State %
Classes Not Taught by Highly Qualified Teachers   All Schools High-Poverty Schools* Low-Poverty Schools* All Schools High-Poverty Schools* Low-Poverty Schools*
TOTAL 2.6 4.9 5.1 4.5 5.5 5.4 6.7

*High-poverty schools are schools ranking in the top 25% of schools based on the percentage of students eligible for free/reduced-price lunch. Low-poverty schools rank in the bottom quartile of schools based on free/reduced-price lunch enrollment. That is, low-poverty schools have the lowest enrollment in free/reduced-price lunch as a percentage of total membership.

FLORIDA SCHOOL PERFORMANCE GRADE AND AMOs FOR ESEA REPORTING

School Performance Grade

Public schools in Florida are graded annually based on student performance on state assessments and the percentage of students making learning gains. Schools are assigned a letter grade (A through F) corresponding with their rated performance, with grade "A" representing the highest performance rating and grade "F" representing a failed rating. A rating of "I" indicates that grading is incomplete. A grade of "N" indicates that the school is not graded. While the vast majority of Florida's schools receive a performance grade, certain types of schools are exempt from grading, including Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) facilities.

2014-15 School Performance Grade: A


Progress of the Lowest Performing 25% of Students, 2014-15

Learning gains were not calculated in 2014-15. In order to calculate learning gains, the FDOE needs two years of assessment information. The FSA was new in 2014-15, so there was not two years of assessment data to calculate learning gains.


For more information on school grades and grading procedures, contact your principal's office or your local school board or visit the School Grades web page at http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org.

Identified Schools for ESEA Flexibility

The table below indicates how schools in this district were identified for ESEA flexibility. Focus schools are identified as schools for which the most recent grade is “D” as well as Title 1 schools graded “C” or higher for which the federal four-year graduation rate was lower than 60%. Priority schools are identified as schools for which the most recent grade is “F.” Reward schools are schools that were graded “A”; improved a letter grade; were rated “Improving” in the school improvement rating system or improved a rating; or maintained a grade after having improved by two or more letter grades in the prior year.
