Under Ohio’s new school grading system, individual schools and districts are graded in four key component areas: Achievement, Progress, Graduation Rate and Gap Closing.
Achievement is measured in two parts:
Performance Indicators which show how many students have a minimum or proficient level of knowledge. Based on 24 state tests, 75 percent of students must score “proficient” or better for the school to get credit for the same performance level.
- Performance Index measures the achievement of every student. Schools earn points based on each student’s performance. It rewards schools and districts that improve the performance of highest and lowest performing standards.
Progress measures the Value-added designation for each school and district. A “C” grade shows a student made one year’s progress.
+2 and higher A
Greater or equal to +1 but less than +2 B
Greater or equal to -1 but less than +1 C
Greater or equal to -2 but less than -1 D
Less than -2 F
Graduation Rate is perhaps the most straight forward measurement included in the report cards. Schools receive grades for both four-year graduation rates and five-year graduation rates.
Four-Year Graduation Rate
Score Letter Grade
93% - 100% A
89% - 92.9% B
84% - 88.9% C
79% - 83.9% D
Less than 79% F
Five-Year Graduation Rate
Score Letter Grade
95% - 100% A
90% - 94.9% B
85% - 89.9% C
80% - 84.9% D
Less than 80% F
Gap Closing is measured by Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) which show the academic performance of specific groups of students. Each group is compared against the collective performance of all students in Ohio. This helps the state Department of Education determine if there are gaps in academic achievement between groups of students.
