ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Mississippi’s SQSS indicator includes a CCR indicator and an Acceleration indicator, each of which is worth 50 points, or 5 percent of the total high school score.  The CCR indicator is based on performance on the ACT.

The Acceleration indicator consists of a participation component (based on students enrolled in AP, IB, dual credit, AICE or industry certification courses) and a performance component (based on students earning 3+ on an AP exam, earning a C+ in a dual credit/dual enrollment course, earning a 4+ on an IB exam, or passing an industry certification exam).
