DAUPHIN COUNTY TECHNICAL SCHOOL PERFORMANCE REPORT8STUDENT PERFORMANCE & GROWTH: 2017-2018PVAAS PerformanceDiagnostic ReportsPennsylvania Value-AddedAssessment System is datathat offers a way to measurestudent growth. Thesereports allow stakeholders atDauphin County TechnicalSchool to decide if theKeystone testing groupachieved an appropriateamount of growth in each ofthe tested areas for the yearsspent in instruction. Thisdata is to be used inconjunction with KeystoneAchievement results togather a complete picture ofstudent learning.About The Keystone ExamsThe Keystone Exams areend-of-year assessmentsdesigned to assessproficiency in the subjects ofAlgebra I, Biology, andLiterature.The Keystone Exams are onecomponent ofPennsylvania’s new systemof high school graduationrequirements. KeystoneExams will help schooldistricts guide studentstoward meeting statestandards (from the PennsylvaniaDepartment of Education).PVAAS Three Year Comparison120100806040200Algebra 1Biology20162017Literature2018PVAAS data is calculated by comparing actual test scores on Keystone examswith predicted achievement. If a school has been growing its students exactlyas expected, PVAAS results will indicate that the school met the standard for PAAcademic Growth and will be given a score of zero. If a school is able to dobetter (for example, have two years of growth in one) the school would haveexceeded the standard for PA Academic Growth and will have a positive score.Conversely, a school that does not meet at least one year of growth for eachyear between testing will have not met the standard for PA Academic Growthand will receive a negative score.
