The Accountability Data section is responsible for providing data management services for Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP) Performance Standards and the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Results. The section assists the department with computing an Annual Performance Report (APR) score for each Local Education Agency (LEA) and school to measure progress toward the goal that all students graduate high school college- and career-ready. This overall score is comprised of scores for each of the MSIP 5 Performance Standards (1) Academic Achievement (2) Subgroup Achievement (3) High School Readiness (K-8 districts) or College and Career Readiness (K-12 districts), (4) Attendance Rate and (5) Graduation Rate (K-12 districts). The section is responsible for providing services for federal accountability determinations utilizing data from the MSIP performance standards of academic achievement (English language arts and mathematics), subgroup achievement (English language arts and mathematics) and graduation. The section collaborates with the department for the creation and publication of supporting reports for each of the MSIP performance standards and MAP results to provide LEA Officials the ability to regularly monitor their own progress toward the goal that all students graduate high school college- and career-ready. The section also assists LEAs with the completion of MOSIS/Core Data cycles that contain information such as student demographics, student course completions, student graduation follow-up, and student enrollment that impact the APR score.
