When results were recalculated using the data from 2020-21 with the previous method used in 2018-19 per the Assembly Committee on Education’s request, results showed similar star rating distributions for districts. The distribution of district- and school-level star ratings is similar, and ratings differed by no more than one star between the actual 2020-21 report cards and the recalculated results. Over 75 percent of schools and over 80 percent of districts had no rating change, and while there were slightly more negative than positive star rating shifts for districts, there were more positive than negative star rating shifts for schools (i.e., more district ratings went down using the 2020-21 business rules compared to the 2018-19 rules). In addition, private schools for both choice and all student report cards had more positive rating shifts and fewer negative rating shifts compared to public schools. Distributions of star ratings in both the 2020-21 report cards and the requested recalculation were similar to the 2018-19 report card star rating distribution, showing the DPI’s efforts to improve the usability of the report cards while maintaining system-wide continuity of the results were successfully achieved.
