Interpreting School Ratings

When interpreting report card ratings, it is helpful to keep the following descriptions in mind for the overall rating:
Level 1 = Falls into the bottom 5% of schools
Level 2 = Falls between 5% and 15% of schools
Level 3 = Falls between 15% and 44% of schools
Level 4 = Falls between 44% and 90% of schools
Level 5 = Falls into the top 10% of schools

Generally, a school that receives an overall rating of Level 4 or 5 is above average. Those at the low end of Level 4 would be considered average, while those with a rating of Level 3 or lower would be below average.

The overall rating is based on a weighted average of ratings for Achievement, Growth, Subgroup Growth, and, for high schools, Graduation and Subgroup Graduation. In terms of Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs), a Level 4 or better in Achievement corresponds to meeting the AMO; a Level 3 or better in Graduation corresponds to meeting the AMO.
