ESSA Metrics

ESSA School Quality and Student Success Indicators

Florida’s SQSS indicator includes four components: science achievement, social studies achievement, middle school acceleration and high school (college and career) acceleration.

The high school acceleration component of the SQSS indicator includes completion of AP, IB or Advanced International Certification exams; dual enrollment; and nationally-recognized industry certifications. This component is weighted at 100 points, or 10 percent of the total high school accountability score. 

Students can also receive credit under the Middle School Acceleration component for passing a recognized industry certification exam. This component is worth 100 points, or 11 percent of the total middle school accountability score.
