ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Illinois’ accountability system includes a College and Career Readiness indicator, weighted at 6.25 percent of the overall high school score. Students are differentiated as either Distinguished Scholars or College and Career Ready.

College and Career Ready students must meet GPA and attendance requirements and either:

  • Earn a College and Career Pathway endorsement or
  • Meet one academic indicator in ELA and math, identify a career interest and meet three career-ready indicators.

Career-ready indicators include workplace learning experiences, industry credentials, military service, a passing grade in a dual credit career pathway course, completing a program of study, employment, community service and/or co-curricular activities.
