In 2014-15, a school’s informational baseline grade may include up to seven components. There are four achievement components, as well as components for middle school acceleration, graduation rate, and high school acceleration. Each component is worth 100 points in the overall calculation.
Learning gains will not be calculated in 2014-15 because there is only one year of Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) results available. When learning gains are included in 2015-16, a school’s grade may have up to 11 components.
The four achievement components are English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
These components include student performance on statewide standardized assessments, including the comprehensive assessments, end-of-course (EOC) assessments, and Florida Alternate Assessments (FAA).
The component measures the percentage of full-year enrolled students who achieved a passing score.
