District and building EVAAS coordinators will receive an email tomorrow evening, Tuesday, Sept. 30, regarding the release of 2014 district and building Value-Added reports on the SAS EVAAS website. Using the login instructions from their emails, EVAAS coordinators will be able to view detailed Value-Added reports and new resources with all 2013-2014 data except for the teacher reports, which are expected to be released in late October. Also following the release, visitors to the public EVAAS website will see aggregate 2013-2014 information for districts and buildings.
Based on feedback from districts, the Ohio Department of Education and SAS prepared several improvements for the website including a new Accountability Report that will give districts a better understanding about data that is used to produce Ohio School Report Card ratings. In addition, districts will be able to compare their data to that of other districts – and learn more about the relationship between Value-Added and student achievement data. In addition to the three-year average of Value-Added data, each district also will be able to view a one-year report for the most recent year.
To learn more about how to use accountability data for school improvement, please note that there are regional meetings scheduled throughout this fall. See a flyer with details about these meetings, as well as online courses, posted on the Ohio Student Progress Portal. Value-Added leaders also assist teachers or principals in interpreting or answering questions about their reports. Please click here to find the leader who serves your district. Questions about Value-Added resources also may be directed to: Support@BattelleforKids.org.
