Ohio's K-12 District Report Card

A Deeper Dive into the Calculations - Get to Know Your Grade

Workshop Overview & Descripiton

The 2018 school and district report cards include several new calculations because of changes to state and federal law. The new elements include a chronic absenteeism indicator, an end of course improvement indicator and a new piece to the gap closing component that measures whether English Learners are making progress towards English proficiency.

This also is the first year that an overall summative grade was issued. Marianne Mottley, Director of the Report Card Project at the Ohio Department of Education, will offer attendees a “deep dive” presentation into the data, and business rules used in all the report card calculations focusing special attention on the elements that are new. Attendees will leave with a strong understanding of how the grades are determined. This is a FREE Event - Advance Registration is Required - See Below.

About the Speaker: Marianne E. Mottley

Marianne Mottley began her career almost 30 years ago as a legislative aide in the Ohio Senate. During her 18 year tenure in the legislature, she served as legislative aide to three state senators, all of whom were policy leaders in the education arena.

12 years ago, Marianne transitioned to the Office of Accountability at the Ohio Department of Education, serving first as a policy aide, then as assistant director and then as director. During that time she worked on numerous changes to the report card including working to implement the version used today. A year ago she assumed a newly created position called “Director of the Report Card Project.”

In that role she not only directs the accountability policies and production of the report cards themselves and also directs a lot of the work that comes after the report cards are released such as helping the program offices with data used for school improvement or data for community school sponsor and operator evaluations.
