What is Oklahoma’s A-F School Grading System?

Oklahoma’s A-F School Grading System is based on the concept that parents and community members should be able to quickly and easily determine how schools are performing. To that end, the new A-F system gives all schools and school districts in the state of Oklahoma a grade of A, B, C, D, or F - similar to grades already given to students. This allows the OK State Department of Education to offer a system similar to report cards given to students.

The A-F grading system will be a much more user-friendly way for parents to determine school performance than previous complex systems such as the Academic Performance Index, used under the federal No Child Left Behind law, which gave schools numerical scores from 0 to 1,500 based on performance measures. 

The A-F grading system will be implemented for the 2012-13 school year based on data from the 2011-12 school year, and will be reported annually thereafter. The reform offers easy-to-understand and concise information for parents and citizens, so that they can access information about school quickly and at their fingertips on the Web.

How is a school or district’s A-F grade calculated?

A-F Report Card grades used a different formula for 2012-2013 student achievement to calculate the grade card.  The report card is comprised of two main sections that are each worth 50% of the overall grade.

  1. Student Achievement
  2. Student Growth

Part 2 Student Growth is divided into two sub-categories:
  1. All students in a school - 25% of the final grade.
  2. Bottom 25% of students in a school - 25% of the final grade.

The schools also have the opportunity to gain up to ten (10) bonus points from achieving established criteria in attendance, advanced coursework, dropout rates, graduation, college entrance exams, and/or
EOI performance.

A letter grade will be awarded in each of these categories and combined to award an overall letter grade
for a school. Districts
will receive report cards based on the grades of all school sites in the District. The State Department of Education in September released an updated comprehensive A-F Report Card technical guide (Guide) to
all Oklahoma school Districts. The technical guide explains each factor used to determine grades and
gives schools and districts a step-by-step methodology to calculate their own grades.
