About Value-Added Reports
School Value-Added reports provide reliable measures of the average academic growth a school's students made in each tested grade and subject or course. The growth measures indicate how successful the school was in helping students meet expected growth. The value-added reports can help educators identify relative strengths and areas of concern across grades and subjects. When sufficient data is available, the reports include three years of growth measures and a three-year average growth measure. Examining patterns and trends across years can offer important insights into the effectiveness of the school's programs.
When you open a School value-added report, you see these options on the Tests/Subjects tab:
