The Georgia Department of Education released 2019 CCRPI scores today. The CCRPI is a formula of mostly test scores and test score growth that rates schools on a 0-100 scale.
This year’s scores use the same formula as 2018, but the formula was different in prior years. So, to better understand school CCRPI performance over time, the visual below shows each the state percentile rank of each school’s CCRPI score.
The results are sorted by the percentile rank of the three year average. CCRPI tends to fluctuate from year to year, so the three year average is more predictive of future performance. Note that the percentile rank of the three year average is not the same as the three year average of the percentile rank. In other words, averaging columns 2017-2019 will not produce the last column1.
The percentile view is helpful for comparing across years and to the state, but it can exaggerate differences for schools in the middle of the distribution. Use the “Choose Metric” filter to switch to CCRPI points or to the state percentile rank of progress points. The next visual shows the state percentile rank of each school’s progress score over time.
This year’s CCRPI is composed of the following categories:
- Content Mastery is worth 30% of CCRPI and is determined by student achievement on standardized tests (Georgia Milestones).
- Progress is worth 35% of CCRPI for elementary and middle and 30% for high. This metric measures individual student growth on standardized tests relative to the previous year and is mostly derived from SGP results.
- Closing Gaps is worth 15% of CCRPI for elementary and middle and 10% for high. Closing gaps is calculated based on test score improvement targets for student subgroups including economically disadvantaged, English Learners, students with disabilities and race/ethnicity groups.
- Readiness is worth 20% of CCRPI for elementary and middle and 15% for high. Readiness measures literacy, student attendance, and enrollment in certain non-core classes such as world language in elementary school or advanced placement in high school.
- Graduation is worth 15% of CCRPI for high school and is based on the cohort graduation rate.
See the resources here for more detail about the CCRPI categories.
The last visual shows 2019 CCRPI results by category. Each category score is converted to a state percentile rank to better demonstrate relative strengths and weaknesses.
Schools that cross traditional grade bands have their grade-band score reported above, and used for percentile calculations, as opposed to their single score.
