The Preliminary Results Estimate module allows users to view Proficiency and Growth values by student, school, and district.
Where is the module?
You can find it located on the main left menu under Accountability. If you do not have the menu item, contact your district admin to request access.
Where does the data come from?
The SLAIF (student level assessment information file) released by MDE. Wait, I don't see any data. What's going on?
In order for us to display your data, we must have been given access. If your file status is red, it means we are missing data. Get with your district staff to ensure your data is accessible.
How do I use the module?
Depending on your school or district scope, you'll see the Proficiency and Growth bar charts for your school or district. To view individual student data, scroll to the Student Detail section.
You'll notice two columns "Our Total" and "MDE".
Our Total = the calculation of scores based on the SLAIF released August 20, 2019, which we've concluded includes CURRENT YEAR SCIENCE SCORES.
MDE = the scores from the media file, which we've concluded includes THE HIGHER OF THE TWO SCIENCE SCORES.
Proficiency & Growth Breakdown
Hover over each band to see the score. Use the school and test toggles at the top of the screen to isolate a single school or test.
Use the column headers to sort and filter your data. For example, let's say you'd like to see all the 7th graders who did not meet Growth. First click the Growth toggle, then the column heading for Test Grade. And then click the funnel icon.
Now select Show only rows where and type 07 and click OK.
Now, let's add the Growth filter. Click the column heading Growth Value, then the funnel icon.
Then Show only rows where and type 0 and click OK.
Then export your results here.
