During each school year, students in Ohio participated in the AIR standardized tests. These tests are designed to measure how well students master the knowledge and skills they should have in each grade according to Ohio’s Learning Standards.
How are the test scores used?
Our focus is on individual student growth, and we realize that the test is only one snapshot in time. In Springboro Schools, the results are another tool to know your child and to continue improving our local schools. We use data--including standardized test scores--to drive instruction, to differentiate, to connect with our students, and to find the individual ways that engage, prepare, inspire and challenge all learners.
The scores are also used by the State of Ohio to in our district’s report card, which is released each fall. In addition the state report card we analyze the achievements of our students across a broad range of courses, competitions, and activities. We look at a variety of factors that illustrate our district’s performance: Advanced Placement course participation and scores, ACT scores, our graduation rate, our students’ performance on AIMS, and IOWA tests.
How did the district score on the most recent report card?
Springboro Schools is proud to announce that the district has earned an “A” grade for this past school year (2017-2018). Springboro Schools is one of only twenty eight (28) school districts in the State of Ohio to earn this incredible honor. Congratulations to all students, families, staff, and community leaders for their continued support and effort in making Springboro Schools one of the best districts in all of Ohio.
For the first time, districts and schools are assigned overall letter grades. The overall grade is calculated by using results in the six components: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers (previously known as K-3 Literacy Improvement), Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success. Districts and schools also receive A-F grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures.
