This rule applies only to schools and districts for which value-added calculations can be computed.
(A) As required by section 3302.021 of the Revised Code, a standard year of academic growth is defined as progress that falls within two standard errors of measurement of the average amount of progress schools and districts make during the current school year. Performance in reading and mathematics for each school and district will be compared to the average growth computed separately for reading and for mathematics in grades three through eight in a base year. The base year will be periodically updated to meet acceptable statistical practice. For the purpose of incorporating the value-added progress dimension into the accountability system in 2010-2011 as described in paragraphs (I) to (K) of rule 3301-58-03 of the Administrative Code, the value-added results for the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010schoolyears shall be recomputed to meet the standard defined in this paragraph.
(B) A composite determination of academic progress will be computed for each school and district by combining progress in reading and mathematics at the component grade levels.
(C) The levels of academic progress shall be described by one of the following three categories:
(1) Exceeds growth expectations;
(2) Meets growth expectations; and
(3) Does not meet growth expectations.
(D) Exceeds growth expectations shall indicate that a school or district has made greater progress than the standard year of academic growth.
(E) Meets growth expectations shall indicate that a school or district has made a standard year of academic growth.
(F) Does not meet growth expectations shall indicate that a school or district has made less progress than the standard year of academic growth.
