The following descriptions explain the three types of reports available from the Office of Accountability. Scroll down to learn more about each report, or click here to directly access the district-by-district or site-by-site reports.


Profiles State Report
(Access Report)
THE STATE REPORT (Click here to access reports)
As with all of the Office of Accountability’s reports, the information presented in the "Profiles State Report" is divided into three major reporting categories: (1) Community Characteristics, (2) District Educational Process, and (3) Student Performance. This is meant to mirror the real-world educational process. Students have a given home and community life. They attend a school with a varied make up of teachers who deliver education through different programs. And in the end, all of these factors come to bear on each student’s academic performance.

The "State Report" deals with state-level common education issues. It examines the "big picture" of Oklahoma education and it is meant to set the stage for examining education in your part of the state, or within your local community. It contains many tables, graphs, and maps, all with accompanying text. Wherever possible, tables and graphs cover multiple years so that trends may be observed. National comparisons are added where comparable data exists. For a FREE printed copy of the report, please contact the Office of Accountability at (405) 225-9470, or e-mail us at contact@SchoolReportCard.org. (Back to Top)


Profiles District Report
(Access Report)
THE DISTRICT REPORT (Click here to access reports)
The information presented in the "Profiles District Report" is divided into the same three major reporting categories as in the state report: (1) Community Characteristics, (2) District Educational Process, and (3) Student Performance.

Each reporting category is represented by a column of information on the report. Each district’s report is a two-page spread. The first page covers the district’s community characteristics (1st column) and the district’s educational processes (2nd column). The second page is dedicated to student performance information (3rd column). See diagram below.

Profiles District Report Layout

The first column of information has two sections. The first section offers general information that identifies the district and gives the information required to contact the Superintendent. The second section, labeled Community Characteristics, provides a statistical sketch of the featured district’s community.

The second column, titled District Educational Process, reflects the learning environment provided by the school district.

The third column, titled Student Performance, takes up the entire 2nd page of the report. It contains information on test scores for all state mandated tests. Additional high school performance measures are provided to complete the educational performance picture.

Remember, when evaluating education, no single score or ratio can measure the academic soundness of a state, district, school, or student. The various factors that contribute to the educational process must be evaluated while taking into consideration their interrelationship. This is a difficult, but important, task.

If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the terms used in this report series, please refer to the Explanation of Terms and Data portion of this web site. If you plan to do research with our data, please contact our office so that we can help guide you on the proper uses of the information presented in our reports. Our telephone number is (405) 225-9470, or e-mail us at contact@SchoolReportCard.org. (Back to Top)


Profiles School Report Card
(Access Report)
THE SCHOOL REPORT CARD (Click here to access reports)
Each "Profiles School Report Card" consists of a two-page document. In the real world, each report is a two-sided document which is folded in half like a student’s report card. On our web site however, each side must be displayed separately.

We start with the inside of the document. The information presented here is divided into the same three major reporting categories used in the other documents: (1) Community Characteristics, (2) School Educational Process, and (3) Student Performance. Each reporting category is represented by a section of information (see diagram below).

Profiles School Report Card Data Page

The first section, labeled Community Characteristics, provides a statistical sketch of the featured School’s community.

The second section, labeled School Educational Process, reflects the learning environment provided by the school.

The third section, labeled Student Performance, contains information on test scores for all state mandated tests. High school report cards have additional performance measures to complete the educational performance picture.

The second page of the report is what would be the front and back cover of the document when folded. The front cover (right side of the page) identifies the School and gives the information required to contact the Principal. The bottom of this section also contains a message from the Secretary of Education or the chairman of the Education Oversight Board. Information is provided regarding the school's performance as compared to the Education Oversight Board’s 70% Performance Benchmark.

Profiles School Report Card Cover Page

The back cover (left side of the page) is an area that is reserved for comments from the principal, which he or she adds before sending the document out to parents. Please contact the individual principals for copies of their comments.

Remember, when evaluating education, no single score or ratio can measure the academic soundness of a state, district, school, or student. The various factors that contribute to the educational process must be evaluated while taking into consideration their interrelationship. This is a difficult, but important, task.
