School Rankings: 2020 PANDEMIC EDITION

In this time of uncertainty, it is more important than ever to monitor our students’ progress in a meaningful way. Given the lack of 2019-2020 academic data, however, this is challenging. The Pandemic Edition of the C@R school rankings aims to determine the consistency and resiliency of schools and districts before COVID-19. By examining past performance, we hope to understand better which schools and students entered the 2020-2021 school year more prepared and likely need more generous support. 

In this special edition, C@R examined the past three years of available data that demonstrate campus and district consistency over time. Schools are measured by:

Achievement Indicators: Performance on STAAR Reading and Math tests from the past 3 years.

Performance Indicators: An adjustment of achievement indicators to eliminate bias toward campuses with low percentages of economically disadvantaged students.

Growth Indicators: The improvement over time on standardized test scores in Reading and Math.

Racial Equity Indicator: Comparative measure indicating how well schools are serving students of color. 

College Readiness: Graduation rates, SAT/ACT participation rate and scores, and AP/IB participation rate and scores
