The Indiana Department of Education invites you to provide feedback regarding the proposed "observed growth values" tables for Indiana's Student-Centered Accountability System. Please click on the link above to review the history and purpose of the "observed growth values" table.

Beginning with the 2010-11 academic year, the State Board of Education changed the labels for school categories based on student performance from the terms Exemplary, Commendable, Academic Progress, Academic Watch and Academic Probation to easy-to-understand letter grades (A, B, C, D and F).

The new A-F labels improve transparency by allowing parents and community members to better recognize how well Indiana schools are performing and leading students to achieve positive academic outcomes.

Starting with the 2011-12 academic year, the State Board of Education adopted the use of a new methodology for determining a school or corporation's grade, A-F.

Indiana's new A-F model holds schools and corporations to higher standards and provides a more accurate picture of their performance by incorporating student academic growth and graduation rates, as well as college and career readiness, as measures of success.
