                                                        Areas of Notable Achievement

Which area(s) are above the expected levels of performance?

The areas that are above expectations are eighth grade math and science. According to the student performance worksheet, eighth grade science was the only area that showed positive gains. Based on the State's FCAT ranking, eighth grade math exceeded the state's average.

Describe the area(s) that show a positive trend in performance.

Only eighth grade science showed a positive trend (0.16) in performance improvement. Positive trends were also found within the number of students moving from the second quartile into the third quartile in eighth grade reading and math. As well as the number of students moving from the first quartile into the second quartile in sixth and seventh grade reading and math and eighth grade reading.

Which area(s) indicate the overall highest performance?

Eighth grade math is the area with the overall highest performance, receiving a weighted mean score of 2.38.

Which subgroup(s) show a trend toward increasing performance?

Only the African American and economically disadvantaged subgroups are populated with enough students to be rated under AYP. Both subgroups decreased in performance, with the African American subgroup showing the lowest decrease in percentage points (14).

Between which subgroups is the achievement gap closing?

Although only two subgroups are populated enough to be rated under AYP, data show that the achievement gap is closing between African American females and Hispanics.

Which of the above reported findings are consistent with findings from other data sources?

Eighth grade math and science are consistent with the findings from FCAT 2.0 data source.

                                                              Areas in Need of Improvement

Which area(s) are below the expected levels of performance?

All areas are below the expected levels of performance except eighth grade science.

Describe the area(s) that show a negative trend in performance.

FCAT scores showed a slight negative trend in performance in all areas except eighth science.

Which area(s) indicate the overall lowest performance?

According to the improvement scores on the student performance matrix, sixth grade math is the area indicated with the overall lowest performance (-0.35).

Which subgroup(s) show a trend toward decreasing performance?

Both subgroups showed a trend toward decreasing performance, with the economically disadvantaged showing the greatest decrease of 16% points.

Between which subgroups is the achievement gap becoming greater?

Although only two subgroups (African American and economically disadvantaged) are populated with enough students to be rated under AYP, the achievement gap is becoming greater between African American and Whites. This is evident by the school's 2011 and 2012 FCAT data as well as the the State of Florida's 2011 and 2012 FCAT data.

Which of the above reported findings are consistent with findings from other data sources?
