What is the denominator for calculating middle school performance on high school end-of-course (EOC) assessments and industry certifications?
The denominator of the middle school acceleration performance measure is the unduplicated count of students from the numerator of the participation component who have a valid score. Students are included in the numerator for performance if they score at Achievement Level 3 or higher on an EOC assessment or have a passing industry certification outcome. For students with more than one successful outcome, an additional 0.1 points are credited to the student for each successful outcome beyond the first, which is weighted at 1.0 points. As with the acceleration performance component for high school grades, middle schools can earn additional successful completions for students who achieve industry certifications that result in credit for more than one college course through Statewide Articulation Agreements.
