Map: Did Your School Get A Better Grade In 2012 Because Of Tony Bennett?
When thenIndiana schools chief Tony Bennett changed the way state education officials calculated AF school ratings, it wasn’t only a favorite charter school, Christel House Academy, that benefited. A StateImpact analysis shows 165 Indiana schools received higher grades in 2012 as a result of a change that helped boost Christel House’s grade from its initiallyprojected C to the A rating it actually received.
To understand how the school’s grades improved, check out this post. To understand how we made these calculations, click here. To see which schools’ grades improved, take a look at the map and sortable table below:
IDOE Data / StateImpact Analysis
Use the table below to find individual schools whose grades went up because of changes to the “subscore ceiling” by either typing their name or corporation into the search box or clicking on the arrows in the headers to sort the table.
UPDATE, 5:30 p.m. Eastern: For those of you who want more information than is in the sortable table, take a look at this spreadsheet of the 165 schools included on the map above and the table below. That file includes the schools’ subscores in math and ELA, whether they’re traditional public, charter, or private; and data on what would have happened if Bennett’s staff left the “subscore ceiling” in place.

*Christel House Academy is listed in the map and spreadsheet as having improved from a C to an A. To be clear, two changes to the way state officials calculated the school’s grade in 2012 are responsible for that school’s increase. One change involved eliminating high school data from its calculation, lifting the school’s grade from a C to a B. Lifting the subscore ceiling improved Christel House’s grade from a B to an A.
