Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction (DPI) today released preliminary report cards for schools throughout the state. A school’s score can range from zero to 100 based on its performance in four areas: reading and math test scores; student growth in reading and math; closing gaps in test scores among various groups (low-income, disabled, minority, etc.); and whether students are “on-track” to be ready for college and/or careers. Details and results for individual schools are reported on the DPI website.
The three charts below show summaries of school grades. Schools are given one of five ratings: Fails to meet expectations; Meets few expectations; Meets expectations; Exceeds expectations; and Significantly exceeds expectations. The pie charts below summarize the grades for elementary schools, middle- and junior high-schools, and high schools.
