What is the "Unearned Points by Student" chart?

The "Unearned Points by Student" chart represents lost opportunity in statewide assessments and helps us identify the greatest opportunity for improvement among the school grading formula cells. The taller the bar, the greater the number of points “left on the table” per student in a denominator of the school grade.

Each vertical bar represents a ratio. The numerator is the number of points unearned (out of 100 possible points) for a given grading formula cell (e.g., reading proficiency, math learning gains, etc.), while the denominator is the number of students in the cohort tested for a cell. The chart is intended to inform allocation of resources and strategic goal choices in those situations where resources are scarce.
