Assessment and Achievement
School and District Report Cards
As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every publicly funded school and district in Wisconsin. These report cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four priority areas: Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-track to Graduation. Achievement focuses on students’ proficiency in English Language Arts and math on the annual state assessments. Growth focuses on how rapidly students are gaining knowledge and skills from year to year. Target group outcomes look at outcomes for students with the lowest test scores in the district in an effort to help districts understand how they might better support those students. The on-track to graduation area explores how successfully students are achieving educational milestones that predict later success.
A school or district's Overall Accountability Score places the school/district into one of five overall accountability ratings: significantly exceeds expectations, exceeds expectations, meets expectations, meets few expectations, or fails to meet expectations. In the most recent report cards published by DPI, VASD once again exceeds expectations on the annual report card. We earned an overall score of 72.5 and an “exceeds expectations”, four-star (out of five) distinction based on data analyzed by the DPI.
We use the report card data along with a variety of other student achievement and input measures to gain insights into current educational practices, areas of strengths, and opportunities for continued growth. It is important to note that there is not one single measure that reflects the quality of a student’s education in the Verona Area School District.
