Standardized tests are obviously incredibly important for gauging academic performance, but other qualitative metrics like parent, student and teacher surveys are very useful and usually tie back to academic performance. Suspension rates, absenteeism, attrition, graduation rates, % of graduates persisting and graduating from 2 and 4 year colleges are also important measurements of "performance" in ways that standardized tests don't capture. Also teacher retention and fiscal metrics are important for sustainability. All of these metrics can be put on a single page dashboard to give a good feel of school performance (to be interpreted by the board or accountability team).by loren
