Multiple Measurement Rating (MMR) and AYP DeterminationsMDE Report Card: http://rc.education.state.mn.us/
The MMR measures proficiency, student growth, achievement gap reduction, and graduation rates.
Priority, Focus, Continuous Improvement, Celebration Eligible and Reward are given
Reward Schools: These schools are the top 15 percent of Title I schools based on the MMR.
Celebration Eligible: These are the 25 percent of schools directly below the Reward school cutoff.
Continuous Improvement: These are the bottom 25 percent of Title I schools that have not already been identified as Priority or Focus.
Focus: All Minnesota schools receive a Focus Rating (FR) that measures their contribution to the state’s achievement gap. The 10 percent of Title I schools with the lowest FR are identified as Focus Schools and must work with MDE and the Regional Centers of Excellence to implement interventions aimed at improving the performance of the school’s lowest-performing subgroups.
Priority: These are the 5 percent most persistently low-performing Title I schools based on the MMR. These schools must work with MDE and the Regional Centers of Excellence to implement turnaround plans to make drastic improvements for increased student achievement.
