This is the image for the news article titled Understanding Alabama's A-F Report Card System

In compliance with the Alabama State Law (Alabama Accountability Act), the Jasper City School System would like to inform you of the December 2016 release of the A-F State Report Card, so that you may better understand the purpose and overall information included.

The system gives scores in four areas: learning gains; student achievement, local indicators and the graduation rate for high schools. The indicators will be released over a 2 year period; therefore, an overall grade cannot and should not be calculated and or communicated. As a school district, we are excited that 92% of our students in grades 4-8 had learning gains. We are also very proud of our graduation rate of 92%. We are continuously looking at instructional practices that impact student learning, so that 100% of our students experience learning gains. 

Parents can see how their school, or school system, compares to the rest of the state.

The report cards don’t yet include the letter grades that lawmakers mandated. The state will add letter grades in December of 2017.

The report cards can be viewed at: https://ap.alsde.edu/accountability/atof

AAA -Alabama Alternate Assessment

The Alabama Alternate Assessment is designed for special education students whose Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams determine that the students will not participate in the regular student testing program. Students with significant cognitive disabilities must be taught and tested using grade level Alabama Extended Standards. The Body of Evidence includes a variety of products that illustrate student achievement on each Alabama Extended Standard for the grade level of enrollment. A Body of Evidence often includes actual student work, captioned photographs, videotapes, audiotapes, data charts, and graphs.

ACCESS 2.0- Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State to State for English Language Learners

The Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State to State for English Language Learners is a standards-based, criterion referenced English language proficiency test designed to measure English language learners' social and academic proficiency in English. It assesses social and instructional English as well as the language associated with language arts.

This test has six main purposes:

  • to identify the English language proficiency level of students with respect to state-wide performance standards
  • to identify students who may be candidates for English as a second language (ESL) and/or bilingual education services
  • to assess annual English language proficiency gains using a standards-based assessment instrument
  • to provide districts with information that will help them evaluate the effectiveness of their ESL/Bilingual programs and determine staffing requirements
  • to provide data for meeting federal and state statutory requirements with respect to student assessment
  • to provide information that enhances instruction and learning in programs for English language learners.
