The federal components of the Annual Education Report (AER) provide detailed information about the status of education in Michigan’s public schools, public school academies, districts and Michigan’s statewide performance. This report provides all of the information on Teacher Quality, Student Assessment and Accountability for schools, districts and the state in one convenient place:
- Teacher Qualifications: Identifies teacher qualifications in relation to requirements. Here you can find how many teachers in a school, district or across the state possess specific qualifications.
- Student Assessment: Presents assessment information for English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8 and 11, and science for grades 4, 7 and 11, compared to targets for all students as well as subgroups of students. The report helps users understand achievement progress within grades and schools, and to make comparisons to district, state and national achievement benchmarks.
- Accountability Scorecard: Uses information from assessments, graduation and attendance rates to determine if the school and district are meeting accountability targets. Here you can identify how well your school and district are serving the overall academic needs of students. Accountability data for the 2014-15 school year will not include: school/district-level proficiency targets or final accountability outcomes due to Michigan's transition to the M-STEP. Full accountability information will resume being a part of the Annual Education Report starting with 2015-16 data. More information about the Accountability Scorecards is available at: http://www.michigan.gov/schoolscorecard
