ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Alabama's SQSS Indicator measures success in six metrics:

  • Achieving a benchmark score on the ACT - Scoring a 3+ on an AP exam or 4+ on an IB exam
  • Scoring silver or above on the ACT WorkKeys assessment
  • Earning transcripted college credit
  • Earning an industry credential
  • Being accepted for enlistment into the military.

For high schools, the college and career readiness indicator is weighted at 10 percent of the total score.
