School Value Added compares performance of similar students across the country.
Using the old measure a variation of 6 points would indicate that the school performance is 1 grade higher or lower (above or below 1000) across 8 subject grades on average per student. So 1040 would indicate that on average every student achieved between 6 and 7 grades higher than expected across 8 subjects.
The New Measure shows average points above/below expected per subject. So 0.5 would indicate ½ a grade on average per subject across 8 subjects, or 4 gardes higher across the 8 subjects.
