NC4EA published Broucher to describe the importance of each of the elements and the policy implication for states.

An adequate statewide data collection system has nine key elements.

1. Unique statewide student identifier
2. Student-level enrollment data
3. Student-level state test data
4. Information on untested students
5. Student-level course-completion data
6. Student-level SAT, ACT, and Advanced Placement test results
7. Student-level graduation and dropout data
8. State data audit process
9. Ability to match K-12 and higher education data.

Getting smart about data

To get the most benefit from the data, the National Center for Educational Accountability recommends that states create longitudinal student data systems by taking these steps:
1. Create a consistent statewide student identifier to connect records of the same students across multiple databases and years.
2. Collect the following information at the individual student level:
• Fall enrollment, demographic, and program participation data.
• Spring test score data.
• Information on each student who was absent or exempted from testing.
• High school course completion data.
• High school SAT, ACT, and Advanced Placement participation and scores.
• Graduation and dropout data.
3. Develop an audit system to monitor the accuracy of the information that school districts provide.

The Broad Prize for Urban Education

“The Broad Prize for Urban Education was established to promote public school
system excellence by highlighting effective educational practices that are making
a clear and measurable difference in large city school districts.”

The Prize is designed to:
• Restore the American public’s confidence in public schools by spotlighting districts that are making gains in student achievement.
• Create an incentive to dramatically increase student achievement in our nation’s largest urban school districts.
• Reward public school systems that are successfully using creative, results-oriented approaches and techniques to better educate children.

Rising to the Challenge of College and Career Readiness

By taking these steps given below, district leaders can make the best use of the Core Practice Framework and other resources to increase the odds that their school improvement efforts will succeed.

  • Examine the evidence
  • Use the Critical Actions and rubrics
  • Categorize current initiatives
  • Prioritize long-term improvement

New york best practice executive summary

“The New York Elementary School Best Practice Study was part of a larger national research study to investigate the practices of schools that consistently outperform their peers. Research teams studied schools in 20 states to identify key practices of consistently higher-performing schools in a variety of policy contexts.

In New York, research teams investigated 10 consistently higher performing and five average-performing elementary schools to determine the differences in practices between higher and average-performing elementary schools.

Schools were identified through an in-depth analysis of academic achievement developed by the National Center for Educational Accountability using data publicly available from the state.”

NCEA report on Orange Juice or Orange Drink

Lack of student academic preparation and teacher capacity has led many schools and districts to take the easy path – substituting “orange drink” for “orange juice” so that students can pass the course and graduate. This practice appears to be most prevalent among low-income and minority students.

Use of end-of-course exams to monitor whether students in each course have learned the course content. Higher-performing schools and districts are more likely to use these exams to monitor whether the system is working effectively to help students of all socioeconomic backgrounds learn the content in their advanced courses.

Without these exams, schools and districts may not know if their students have consumed “orange juice” or “orange drink.”

“A company selling an orange-colored beverage under the label “orange juice” can get in legal trouble if the beverage contains little or no actual juice.”
