ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE FOR
OHIO FOOTBALL PLAYOFF TEAMS - 2013
NOVEMBER 8, 2013
PRELIMINARY VERSION
PREPARED BY SCOTT GERBER
GERBER ANALYTICS, LLC

 

This document provides the academic results for the schools in the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) football playoffs. To-date, school academic results have not been included as a factor in the Competitive Balance discussion. Academics should be a significant factor since the quality of education varies considerably by school and because it is one of the most important factors for most families when selecting a high school. This purpose of this document is to bring academics into the discussion.

This document is based on the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) test results for Ohio's public (tax payer-funded) and private (customer-funded) schools for the March 2013 test. To insure an apples-to-apples comparison, only the tenth grader results are included.

What Was Included?

For those unfamiliar with the OGT tests, there are five parts -- Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. There is also a summary page that shows the percentage of students who successfully passed all five parts with a “Proficient” rating. The data used in this report is from those five parts and the summary.

The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) Local Report Card data download capability was used to acquire most of the data for the public schools. The ODE provided electronic media as the source for the private school data, the charter schools, and the "percentage of students who passed all five parts" of the test for all schools.

Methodology Used

The table below includes each school's Performance Index Score (PIS); the percentage of students who passed all five portions of the Ohio Graduation Test (PASS 5%); statewide rankings for each school in the various subjects; and how the school is funded (via taxes or via its customers).

The statewide rankings range from 1 to approximately 991 in each subject and they are calculated using the Performance Index Score within each subject area. The rankings provide readers with not only academic performance information between schools, but they also identify strengths and weaknesses within schools. Note that the rankings for those schools that are in the top ten in Ohio in a subject are highlighted in light blue. Click here to go to the Appendix to view the PIS calculation. See below for more information about the rankings.

To view detailed performance on each school, click on the school name.

Note that the table is long -- it contains detailed data for all of the schools that reached the football playoffs (except for Manchester which was not reported). These schools are initially sorted according to their Division and Region, but they may also be sorted by school name, county, Performance Index Score, or Pass All Five Test %.

Comparative Analysis

While the performance numbers and trend charts are beneficial, what sets this web site apart from others is the comparative analysis that this site permits with other schools and within schools.

An example of a side-by-side comparison is here with Lakota East and Lakota West. As with most schools within the same school system, the results are similar.

Looking at a comparison within a school, Lakota East excels in Reading and Social Studies. Lakota West is stronger in Mathematics and Reading. Lakota East is also substantially better in Reading and Social Studies than Lakota West.

One of the goals for this web site is to encourage communities to become better informed and to ask questions. I believe these tools encourage this.

To easily visualize the football playoff schools and all Ohio schools, click the map image below for the Northwest, Northeast, Central, Southwest, and Southeast / East schools. Schools are color-coded by academic performance using the Performance Index Score.

 
   
 
Click on an image to see a Google map of that area.
Readers may use the map scroll bar on the left to navigate the map.

Hover over the marker to see the school name. Click on the marker to see the school's Performance Index Score.

The satellite view is also available via the controls on the upper right.

Continuous Improvement

A major benefit of the Internet is that it is relatively easy to improve existing products and services. This report will likely be enhanced over time. The date of the report will be changed to reflect any changes. [Note: two the maps to the right need adjustment and that will occur later today.]

Corrections / Attribution

Does this document include any mistakes? Hopefully not, the data was carefully entered and the numbers were double checked, but it is possible. Please send a Feedback message with any significant discrepancies. The revised document will be updated and placed online.

While it would certainly be great to profit from this effort, please record the last seven years of this education analysis as a pro-bono or volunteer effort. I do this type of analysis because I enjoy doing it. I am also hopeful that it will benefit an extremely large number of Ohioans.

You may forward this report to anyone you wish but please give proper attribution if you use any of this material. To assist with tracking, please provide others with this link:

I have a substantial "one-of-a-kind" database, and I am open to new analysis projects. If you have an education-related analysis project in mind that you think would benefit all Ohio schools, please contact me.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Calculation of Performance Index Score (Adjusted)

Note that the Performance Index Score (Adjusted) is different from what you may have seen on the Ohio Department of Education’s Report Card. The calculation in this document is only for the 10th grade students. It was calculated as follows:

The new "Advanced Plus" designation was used randomly for some schools. To insure an "apples-to-apples" comparison, the percentage of students scoring "Advanced Plus" was added to the Advance category.
