No Child Left Behind/Report Cards. State Notes
Education Commission of the States
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states to prepare and disseminate an annual state report card. This requirement became effective at the beginning of the 2002-03 school year. The state agency also must ensure each local district collects appropriate data and includes this data at the district level and for each school in its annual report. Information to be reported includes: (1) Aggregated achievement information on state assessments in reading/language arts and mathematics; (2) Disaggregated student group (race/ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic level, gender, migrant status, Limited English Proficient) achievement data on state-wide assessments; (3) Most recent two-year trend data reported by subject area and grade level in areas where assessments are required; (4) Comparison data between actual achievement levels of each group of students to annual student achievement goals; (5) Aggregated information on state indicators used to determine adequate yearly progress (AYP); (6) Percentage of students not tested, disaggregated by student subgroups listed above; and (7) High school graduation rates (by subgroup), one elementary school indicator and one middle school indicator.
