Telling It Like It Is: State-mandated Reports on Local School Quality MS Word - Over the past decade, states have improved the way they report school data to their constituents, clarifying school quality by using indicators that go beyond student achievement. For example, Oregon includes student behavior in its report, measured by dropout rates and attendance. Other indicators states are using include: (1) growth in student achievement; (2) percentage of students participating in state assessments; (3) students performing at grade level or proficiency level; (4) school comparisons at the district, state or national level; (5) alternative education programs offered; and (6) graduation rates.
