2012-13 Reporting Data Elements Description File 

The 2012-13 EOG and EOC tests were the first to reflect the new Common Core State Standards for English/Language Arts and Math and North Carolina Essential Standards for other subject areas.   These standards set a new benchmark for what students are expected to know to graduate college- and career-ready.  
 
The 2012-13 and 2014-15 scores cannot be accurately compared to the scores of previous years because the tests, the standards and the proficiency requirements are different.  We expect students to reach higher levels of learning than ever before and the scores set a new benchmark for learning.  
o An example: In the high jump, the bar is raised periodically to ensure athletes meet higher levels of performance – or proficiency.  When the bar is raised, the athlete will miss the bar initially.  The athlete hasn’t changed -- he or she is still highly skilled.  It’s the bar that has changed.  With time and training, the athlete will clear the higher bar.  
 
•         2013-14 is the second year in which North Carolina public school students are  required to meet a higher standard of proficiency on their End-of-Grade (EOG) and End-of-Course (EOC) tests
 
 
•         In 2013-14, the State Board of Education adopted a new methodology for determining achievement levels of students:

Revised Achievement Levels.jpg
 
 
 
•         The 2013-14 Achievement Levels allow for two different categories of proficiency. Levels 3, 4 and 5 indicate On Grade level Proficiency . Levels 4 and 5 indicate College and Career Readiness Proficiency. 

To make valid comparisons across years 2012-13 and 2013-14, Proficiency rates  (Level 3 and 4) in 2012-13 should be compared to College and Career Ready rates  (Level 4 and 5) in 2013-14.

For 2014-15 and going forward:

Beginning in 2014-15, 74 schools were part of a USDA program called the Community Eligibility Provision that allows all students enrolled at the school to eat lunch at no charge. Unfortunately for researchers, one of the requirements of this program is that no meal applications can be collected at those schools, which means that we will not even have school-level free- and reduced-price lunch data going forward. More information on the Community Eligibility Provision can be found here:

https://childnutrition.ncpublicschools.gov/information-resources/eligibility/community-eligibility-provision-cep

and here:

http://www.fns.usda.gov/school-meals/community-eligibility-provisionThe Identified Student Percentage (ISP) is one of the key factors for determining whether a school, group of schools, or school district qualifies for community eligibility. Identified students include children directly certified for free school meals through data matching because their households receive assistance from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR). In some states and areas, Medicaid benefits, and children who are certified for free meals without an application because they are homeless, migrant, enrolled in Head Start, or in foster care may also qualify as identified students.

An ISP of 40 percent or greater indicates that a school can qualify for community eligibility while an ISP of 30 percent, but less than 40 percent, indicates that a school is near-eligible for the provision. In certain cases, actual ISP information may not be available and according to USDA regulations, state agencies are permitted to use proxy data If a school district decides to adopt community eligibility, it must submit actual ISP information at the time of application.
