OSPI Performance Indicators – Data and Analytics

Email me Email/text me when this page is updated

OSPI staff align their goals with research-based performance indicators to ensure our work leads directly to student success. Analytics have been prepared to help school districts identify opportunities to improve equity between student groups and learn from each other.

In some of the analytics released before September 2016, districts with fewer than 500 students or 20 students in a given group are not shown for statewide analytical purposes. Analytics released after September 2016 show all districts and follow suppression rules of 10 students in a given group.

Update September 2016: Tableau software is now being used to create the analytics. It is a web-based tool that does not require a download or software for viewing. Previously posted analytics in Excel are also available in Tableau. Use of the Excel files may require special settings; see specifications for Windows and Mac.*

2. Postsecondary Enrollment, Completion and Remediation

What is college and career readiness?
College and career readiness means students can leave high school and enter a credit bearing course in a 2-year or 4-year college without taking a remedial course.

What do these data show?

  • Number of high school graduates enrolled in 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities for public, private, in state and out of state
  • Enrollment rates by race/ethnicity and student groups such as low income, special education, etc.
  • Remediation rates for Math and English

4. (and 5.) Assessment

These analytics include assessment data for both proficiency and student growth.

Proficiency Data from State Assessments

  • Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) – Math and ELA for Grades 3rd through 8th and 11th
  • End of Course (EOC) Exams – Math (Algebra 1 or Geometry) and Biology
  • Measures of Student Progress (MSP – Science Grades 5th and 8th

Student Growth Percentiles (SGP)
SGP describes a student’s growth compared only to other students with similar prior test scores; no other student characteristics are considered.

  • Allow us to fairly compare students who enter school at different levels; and demonstrate a student’s growth and academic progress, regardless of proficiency.
  • At its most basic level, SGP asks, “If two students started at the same place, and a year later one is performing better than the other, what factors might explain that difference?”

12. Chronic Absenteeism

What is chronic absenteeism?
Chronic absenteeism is when a student misses 18 or more full days of school for any reason, excused or unexcused. This represents 10% of the school year, and can mean a student misses as few as 2 days of school per month. In Washington, 16% of all K-12 students are chronically absent. This amounts to about 174,000 students.

Why does attendance matter?
Chronic absenteeism has significant impacts on a student’s achievement, even in early grades. Students who are chronically absent are more likely to fall behind in reading and math, and are also more likely to not graduate from high school.

What do these data show?

  • How many students are chronically absent
  • Who is chronically absent (by race, sex, program, etc.)
