The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) generates a School Report Card and District Report Card for every publicly funded school and district in the state. These public report cards can be found online at: http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards. The Report Cards are intended to help schools and districts utilize performance data to target their improvement efforts so that students are ready for their next educational step – including the next grade level, graduation, college, and careers.
The current School Report Card is primarily based on last year’s performance, the 2017-18 school year. At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area:
- Student Achievement proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics on the annual state assessments
- School Growth measured by year-to-year progress in ELA and math achievement
- Closing Gaps in performance between specific student groups (comparing English learners, low-income students, students with disabilities, and members of a racial or an ethnic group with their peers)
- On-Track and Postsecondary Readiness showing reliable predictors of how many students are on-track to graduate from high school and student readiness for post-high school success
Schools and districts are also evaluated on their level of student engagement – chronic absenteeism rates and dropout rates – when applicable.
The priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score, from 0 to 100. This score is displayed in the top left corner of the School or District Report Cards. It is important to note that the 0 to 100 accountability score is not a “percent correct” measurement. Based on its score, a school or district receives one of five rating categories, from Significantly Exceeds Expectations to Fails to Meet Expectations, as well as corresponding one to five stars.
