The Ohio Department of Education released district and school state report cards to the public today. Since Columbus Gifted Academy is a specialized program, ODE does not create a report card for that service location. In the spirit of district transparency and program evaluation, the district has created its own version of the state report card based on outcomes at CGA. Care is taken to use the same formulas used by the state for each component in order to develop the most authentic reporting possible. The exception is with the Progress Component since the complex state value added formal used to develop that grade is not publicly available. In lieu of value added, we have used MAP scores to determine student progress using a metric similar to the value added metric used by the state. To view the full CGA report card, click here.
