State Percentile Analysis

The State Percentile Analysis from ECRA, is a comprehensive report based on your state report card information that allows your district to benchmark results to the overall state percentile for each category. This allows your district to tell a more accurate and compelling story of your district’s results, and give context to your district’s data.


Comparative District Analysis

The State Comparative District Analysis from ECRA allows your district to benchmark its state report card results against other school districts. To gain a better local context, your district may select any 9 districts in your state to get a detailed analysis of your results as measured against peer districts.

Why use these reports?

To tell a more accurate story of your school district

Simply reporting percentages from the state report card does not give the full picture of student achievement. Metrics reported on the state report card need to be put in context so that the board and community have a more complete picture of how the district is performing. ECRA’s State Report Card Analysis converts raw report card metrics to percentiles that are easier to communicate, easier to understand, more accurate, and more contextualized.

ECRA Analysis

To answer important questions

Percentiles can be used to compare performance across indicators and over time to answer important questions such as:

  • What is the relationship between district spending and student achievement?
  • How have our demographics shifted?
  • How has our learning environment evolved?

To save time

Analyzing data on the state report card takes significant time and energy, even for the most productive data scientist. Let the experts at ECRA provide a simple to understand analysis that can be immediately shared with the board and community by a trusted third party.
