ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Nebraska’s school accountability system does not include an explicit measure of career readiness.

An additive Evidence-based Analysis indicator will be taken into account to adjust a school’s classification for comprehensive or targeted support and improvement. Evidence-Based Analysis is developed through school- and district-level questionnaires that gather info on a range of indicators, including college and career readiness and transitions.
