Pro-Core+ On-Track Reports
“On-Track” Student Growth and Teacher Effectiveness
The free On-Track data tool Module shows:
- Estimated proficiency cut-scores in all Pro-Core+ assessments
- Performance sub-groups (Accelerated, Proficient, Basic, Limited)
- Low-performing students “flagged” in class and school reports
- Student (value-added) progress for students, classes, subjects, schools
- School correlation data showing matching rates (prediction estimates) to state tests—currently averaging .80
- Student Growth-Teacher Effectiveness (SG-TE) Ratings automatically calculated between pre- and post- tests--requiring no LEA input
- Student Learning Outcomes (SLO-TE) Calculator available with LEA defined calculations
Teachers and principals can now determine whether students are “on-track” in attaining proficiency on the state’s New Learning Standards early in the school year by viewing the Pro-Core diagnostic assessment Form A cut scores and performance codes.
Later in the school year, teachers and principals can determining whether students and teacher classes are “on-track” in making adequate progress by viewing the Pro-Core Form B cut scores, performance codes, AND the Value-Added data merged into the Pro-Core+ School Reports program.
How is Student Growth–Teacher Effectiveness Measured?
Pro-Core uses Normal Curve Equivalents (NCEs) to measure student growth and teacher effectiveness.
Teacher effectiveness ratings are determined by the average NCE student gains (losses) in each teacher’s classes. The Pro-Core method of determining teacher effectivness ratings is state-approved, computer-generated, and do not require LEAs to do any computations.
The Expected Student Growth Target is simply 0 NCEs which is interpreted as x months of growth per x months of instruction.
