Making Students Visible: Comparing Different Student Subgroup Sizes for Accountability. Policy Memo 16-2
Hough, Heather; Witte, Joe
Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE
With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, California state policymakers are tasked with determining the subgroup threshold for school-level reporting. To inform this decision, this policy brief explores the implications of utilizing various subgroup sizes using data from the CORE Districts. The authors find that the 20+ subgroup size presents clear advantages in terms of the number of students represented, particularly in making historically underserved student populations visible. [This memo represents work underway as part of the CORE-PACE Research Partnership. For an update to this memo, see ED574821.]
