Metric scores

English Learners - Elementary school framework

How are scores calculated for these metrics?

Each metric measures the school's student group performance compared to student group performance across the city. Every metric has a target, for which schools earn all possible points for each student group, and a floor, below which no points are earned. Metric points are awarded based on how much of the target is reached for each student group.
