• Academic Achievement Report Overview - 2014 Academic Achievement Report
    Within the theme of Focused on Learning, the Pine-Richland School District has created the 2014 Academic Achievement Report. This document is intended to assist in the district mission of “providing a strong academic foundation which challenges students to realize their fullest potential and encourages them to become engaged, thoughtful citizens.”
    The teaching and learning processes of the district serve as the core method for achieving this mission. From an educational perspective, we focus on the three big topics of curriculum, instruction, and assessment as the important elements of a successful educational program. The bottom line for our performance as an organization relates to the evidence of academic achievement and student learning.
    The 2014 Academic Achievement Report contains information about student performance on a series of standardized tests during the 2013-2014 school year. When possible, five years of data is included in the report and analyzed for levels of achievement, trends, and growth. Comparison information is also provided for each assessment.
    To the greatest extent possible, this summative data is provided in a visual manner to illustrate levels, trends, and comparisons of performance. Disaggregated results help provide further insight into student achievement levels (e.g., gender and special education).  The report looks at:
    • Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA)
    • Keystone Exams
    • School Performance Profile
    • Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System (PVAAS)
    • Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
    • American College Test (ACT)
    • Advanced Placement (AP) Exams
