|Interpreting School Ratings|
When interpreting report card ratings, it is helpful to keep the following descriptions in mind for the overall rating:
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.
