ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Louisiana's ESSA accountability system includes ACT/WorkKeys performance in the high school Academic Achievement measure, weighted at 25 percent of the high school score. In addition to the ESSA-required indicators, high schools are measured based on measures of Strength of Diploma and Interests and Opportunities. 

  • Strength of Diploma constitutes 8.33 percent of the high school accountability score. This measure awards bonus points for students who earn an associate’s degree, pass AP/IB/CLEP exams, earn credit in AP/IB/dual enrollment courses, earn industry credentials, graduate in five or six years and complete a HiSET equivalency diploma.
  • The Interest and Opportunities indicator constitutes 5 percent of the overall score for all schools and is measured using a menu option that determines the degree to which schools provide opportunities to obtain a well-rounded education, including access to career pathways.
