The newly improved MCIEA SQM Dashboard is now publicly available!
What is the MCIEA School Quality Measures (SQM) Dashboard?
MCIEA's School Quality Measures (SQM) framework aims to describe the full measure of what makes a good school, free of the narrowness and racial bias of standardized test scores.
MCIEA sought input from stakeholders in each consortium district to build a school quality framework that reflects what the public wants to know about their schools. We then created and/or modified survey instruments to address key aspects of our school quality framework and identified related administrative data points to understand holistic school quality.
The SQM dashboard presents results from student and teacher surveys as well as administrative data collection in each school. Importantly, results are never used as a method for ranking schools against each other, but instead as a starting point for understanding school strengths and areas for growth.
