Student Growth Score/VAM Reminders
Following is the list of student & classroom-level characteristics used
in the state’s VAM model to calculate a student’s expected score:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Up to two prior years of achievement scores
Number of subject-relevant courses in which student is enrolled
Students with Disabilities status
English Language Learner status
Gifted status
Attendance
Mobility
Difference from average age in grade (indicating retention)
Class size
Homogeneity of prior test scores in the class
Note: Under State statute, socio-economic status, race, and gender cannot be used.

2012-2013
Classroom Teachers – Student Growth Score
• Assessments used in calculating the 2012-2013 VAM Score:
• FCAT 4th-10th Grade Reading scores for Reading/Language Arts teachers.
• FCAT 4th-8th Grade Math scores for Math teachers.
• Classroom Teachers received a Student Growth score based on their own
assigned students if:
• He/she taught FCAT students in Reading/Language Arts and/or Math.
• He/she had at least 10 VAM expected scores.
• He/she had at least 60% FCAT VAM eligible students (those with at least 2
years of FCAT scores).
• Classroom Teachers not meeting these conditions used the school-wide VAM score.
NOTE: Students were included in the VAM model only if they were
assigned to the teacher during Survey 2 AND Survey 3.
Classroom Teachers – Student Growth Score
• Example for Classroom Teacher using his/her own VAM score:
•
10 out of 20 students (50%) met/exceeded their expected score.
•
The teacher’s percentage meeting/exceeding expectation was ranked within school
level and subject area (analyses were conducted separately for Elem Reading, Elem
Math, Elem Reading & Math, Middle Reading*, Middle Math*, and High Reading)
•
The percentages were then converted to percentiles and teacher received a Student
Growth rating based on the following scale:
Percentile Method (for Teachers using their own data)
Highly Effective
87th – 99th Percentile
Effective
9th – 86th Percentile
Needs Improvement
4th – 8th Percentile
Unsatisfactory
1st – 3rd Percentile
* Middle school teachers who taught both Reading and Math used the higher of their two subject area
ratings for their final Student Growth Rating.
Classroom Teachers – Student Growth Score
•
Example for Classroom Teacher using his/her school’s VAM score:
• 400 out of 800 students (50%) at the school met/exceeded their expected score.
• This percentage was used and the teacher received a Student Growth rating based on the
following scale:
Percentage Method (for Teachers using School or District data)
Highly Effective
87-99 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Effective
9-86 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Needs Improvement 4-8 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Unsatisfactory
1-3 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Note 1: Remember, these are Classroom Teachers meeting one of the following criteria: (1)
<60% of students FCAT VAM eligible, (2) <10 VAM expected scores, or (3) at a Center site.
Note 2: For all school and district locations, the percent meeting/exceeding expectation was
between 9% and 86%. Therefore, all classroom teachers using the school-wide VAM score
received an "Effective" rating on their 40% Student Growth Rating.
** Please note that a teacher using the school score may or may not have the same rating as
their administrator. Teachers’ Student Growth Score is based on a percentage and the
administrators’ Student Growth Score is based on a percentile.
Student Growth Score/VAM: Ceiling Effect Adjustment
• A “ceiling effect” occurs when an assessment has a distinct upper limit and
therefore a student near that upper limit has limited room for growth.
• This effect was noted in VAM calculations for 2011-12 teacher and school
administrator evaluations.
• To adjust for this in 2012-13 for both FCAT Reading and Math, any student who
achieved at Level 5 was counted as “meeting/exceeding expectation”, regardless of
their VAM Expected Score.
• For each teacher and school administrator, the Student Growth analysis was
calculated with and without the Ceiling Effect Adjustment, and the employee
received the higher of the two Student Growth ratings.

Classroom Teacher VAM Student Growth Output
Following is the 1st classroom teacher data file you will receive via email.
Note 1: If teacher has individual student data within the first 9 columns of this table, the
teacher received a VAM score based on his/her own student’s data; otherwise, the teacher
has dashes in those columns and used school or district scores.
Note 2: Attached to this file, administration will receive backup documentation describing the
column headers and explaining the “Percentile” column. These can be used when meeting
with classroom teachers to review their Student Growth Score and the Overall Final Score.

Student by Student VAM Data, 2012-13
Following is the 2nd classroom teacher data file you will receive via email.
Note: Administration will only receive data in this file for those teachers who received a
Student Growth/VAM score based on their own assigned students.

Now that Student Growth Scores have been received:
• Student Growth Ratings will be uploaded into iObservation.
• Those scores are as follows:
• Highly Effective
= 4.0
• Effective
= 3.0
• Needs Improvement
= 2.0
• Unsatisfactory
= 1.0

Non-Classroom Teachers – Student Growth Score
•
Student Growth will count 40% towards the final evaluation.
•
Non-Classroom Teachers will use school or district scores depending on their work
location in 2012-13, and will receive a Student Growth rating based on following table:
40% Student Growth Score
Highly Effective
87 - 99 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Effective
9 - 86 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Needs Improvement 4 - 8 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Unsatisfactory
1 - 3 Percent of School or District scores meet/exceed expectation
Note : For all school and district locations, the percent meeting/exceeding expectation was
between 9% and 86%, with and without the Ceiling Effect Adjustment. Therefore, all nonclassroom teachers received an "Effective" rating for their Student Growth Score.
