ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Georgia’s accountability system is called the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) and is organized into five components: content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness and graduation rate. The SQSS indicators are bundled under the readiness component and include, at the high school level, five measures: literacy, attendance, accelerated enrollment, pathways completion, and college and career readiness.

Accelerated enrollment includes the percentage of students earning postsecondary credit through dual enrollment, AP or IB. - Pathways completion includes the percentage of graduates completing an advanced academic, CTE (known in Georgia as CTAE), fine arts or world language pathway.

College and career readiness includes the percentage of graduates entering college without needing remediation; achieving a readiness score on the ACT, SAT, 2+ AP exams, or 2+ IB exams; earning a national or state credential; or completing a work-based learning experience. The readiness component is weighted at 15 percent of the high school score, with each subcomponent weighed equally.
