ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Ohio’s accountability system includes a Prepared for Success component, which is worth 15 percent of the total score. This component includes six indicators, three of which are required for a student to be identified as “prepared,” including:

  • Receiving a non-remediation score on all parts of the ACT or SAT;
  • Earning at least 12 points with an industry-recognized credential or bundle of credentials within one of 13 career pathways; or
  • Earning an Honors Diploma.


A student can then earn a bonus weight for his/her school if he/she also:

  • Earns at least three transcripted college credits;
  • Scores three or above on at least one AP test; or
  • Scores four or above on at least one IB test.
