Resources for Accountability Reports

AT Title Banner

Oklahoma School Report Cards give families, community members, educators and policymakers contextual information about student and school performance— to celebrate successes and identify areas for improvement. Report card measures serve as indicators of how well we are supporting students. Measured at different points, indicators work together along a continuum to ensure ALL students graduate ready for life after high school.

These resources provide guidance for districts working with and validating data connected to each indicator before it is displayed on the public dashboard found at

Oklahoma School Report Card Guide - Measures, Indicators, and Actions

Full Academic Year (FAY)

Academic Achievement and Academic Growth 

What the Academic Achievement Indicator measures:

How well we are supporting groups of students to be ready for the next grade, course or level based on their performance on state summative assessments in English language arts (ELA), math and science.

What the Academic Growth Indicator measures:

How well we are supporting our students in progressing towards or maintaining mastery of grade-level academic standards in math and ELA based on comparing their performance on state tests between consecutive years. 

Academic Achievement and Growth Reporting Resources

Academic Achievement

The Academic Achievement Indicator examines two equally weighted components: Improvement Toward Expectations (ITE) and Performance Level Snapshot (PLS). 

Priority Student Group Improvement Toward Expectations (ITE)

For the Priority Student Group ITE, a student who meets their Priority Student Group ITE Scale Score Target but who is not yet Proficient is 0.95 points; a Proficient student is 1.0 point. 

Performance Level Snapshot (PLS)

The Performance Level Snapshot component measures the performance of all students on the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP); a student achieving a Basic score is 0.5 points, a Proficient score is 1.0, and Advanced is 1.25 points.

Academic Growth

The Academic Growth indicator measures the progress a student has made. An individual student's OSTP test results are compared between the prior and current year. A student earns a value from 0-200 based on the amount of growth they have made both for English language arts (ELA) and math. Because the Oklahoma Academic Standards include more difficult content from one grade to the next, a student maintaining the same performance level has demonstrated growth.

How well we are supporting our English learners in gaining proficiency in English language based on their WIDA ACCESS Scores.
