Each Dashboard Tab will score a school’s performance on state indicators based on a color coded five point scale from red (poor) to blue (exceptional)
These scores take two things into account:
Status: How well a school is performing in the indicator overall.
Change: How much progress has been made improving the school’s status over a three year period.
This is important, because the score weighs in favor of schools which are making significant improvements and changes in overcoming obstacles, and highlights areas of stagnation or lost ground so that a community and administration can target those areas for direct intervention.
