NECSD Elementary/Middle
Accountability Overview based on
2011-2012 School Report Card
Accountability
• At the elementary/middle level, New York State reports
student proficiency in 1) English language arts (ELA), 2)
mathematics, and 3) science. At the secondary level,
New York State reports student proficiency in 1) ELA, 2)
mathematics, and 3) graduation rate.
Accountability
For each accountability measure, New York State reports
data on the following “accountability” groups:
• All Students
• American Indian or Alaska Native Students
• Black or African American Students
• Hispanic or Latino Students
• Asian or Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander
Students
• White Students
• Multiracial Students
• Students with Disabilities*
• Limited English Proficient (LEP) Students (also known
as English Language Learners – ELLs)*
• Economically Disadvantaged Students*
Accountability
• Schools and districts must meet pre-defined participation
and performance criteria on New York State’s
accountability measures to make Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP).
Accountability
• Elementary/Middle Level: Participation and
performance at the elementary/middle level are
determined for students in grades 3 through 8 combined
for ELA and math and grades 4 and 8 combined for
science based on the school’s or district’s grade
configuration.
Participation – Elementary and Middle
• For an accountability group with 40 or more students
enrolled during the test administration period to meet the
participation criterion in English language arts (ELA) or
mathematics, 95 percent of these students must have
valid scores on an appropriate assessment. In science,
80 percent of these students must have valid scores on
an appropriate assessment.
• Newburgh met participation rate
Performance – Elementary and Middle
 A Performance Index (PI) is a value from 0 to 200 that is
assigned to an accountability group, indicating how that
group performed on a required State test (or approved
alternative) in English language arts, mathematics, or
science.
 Newburgh – PI ELA – 128
EAMO – 148
 Newburgh – PI Math – 137
EAMO – 162
 Newburgh – PI Science – 168
EAMO - 176
Performance – Elementary and Middle
 Student performance in elementary/middle-level ELA and
mathematics is determined using a Performance Index
(PI) calculation using six levels of student achievement:
 Level 1 On Track = Basic and On Track to Proficient
 Level 1 Not On Track = Basic and NOT On Track to
Proficient
 Level 2 On Track = Basic Proficient and On Track to
Proficient
 Level 2 Not On Track = Basic Proficient and NOT On
Track to Proficient
 Level 3 = Proficient
 Level 4 = Advanced
Performance – Science 4/8 and Secondary
 Student performance in elementary/middle-level science
and secondary-level ELA and mathematics is also
determined using a Performance Index (PI) calculation.
This calculation uses four levels of student achievement:


Level 1 = Basic
Level 2 = Basic Proficient
Level 3 = Proficient

NECSD Secondary Accountability
Overview based on 2011-2012 School
Report Card
Accountability
• Schools and districts must meet pre-defined
participation and performance criteria on New York
State’s accountability measures to make Adequate
Yearly Progress (AYP).
Accountability
• Secondary Level: 3 components
– Participation for ELA and math: determined based
on the school’s or district’s grade 12 enrollment.
– Performance for ELA and math: determined
based on the accountability cohort.
– Graduation rate: determined based on the
school’s or district’s total cohort after 4 years
and/or graduation-rate total cohort after 5 years.
Cohort Definition
• A student becomes a member of an
accountability cohort when they first enter
grade 9 anywhere in a particular school year
or in the school year in which they attain the
age of 17 (for ungraded special education
students).
Participation – Secondary
• Requirement: 95 percent of the 12th graders must have valid
scores on
• Regents examinations (or approved alternatives)
• Regents competency tests (or approved alternatives)
• New York State Alternate Assessments.
• Newburgh met participation rate for all subgroups in both
ELA & math with the exception of students with disabilities
for ELA.

Performance – Graduation Rate
 To meet the performance criterion in graduation rate, the
graduation rate of a group with 30 or more students must
be equal to or greater than the State Standard or the
group must meet its Progress Target.
Performance – Graduation Rate- State Standard
 State Standard
 Signifies minimally satisfactory performance in graduation
rate.
 The graduation-rate state standard is currently 80%.
Performance – Graduation Rate- Progress Target
A Graduation Rate progress target is calculated
for schools whose performance is below the
State Standard.
 For the 4-year cohort
 Progress target is a 10% gap reduction (one
percentage point minimum) over the previous
year’s graduation rate.
 For the 5-year cohort
 Progress target is a 20% gap reduction (one
percentage point minimum) over the previous year’s
graduation rate.
