Number of Classes in Specific Subject Areas


Number of Classes in Specific Subject Areas - an unduplicated count of classes (sections) by school for specific Math or Science subject areas.  



  • The qualifying courses are based on the selections made on the Courses tab for each subject area.
  • Class counts are based on student enrollment (CAR) in the class on the Fall Reporting date regardless of subject. If block scheduling is used (MST.BL > 1), then the classes offered on the Spring Reporting date are also counted.
  • COUR-1a – Grade 7/8 Algebra I Classes is limited to classes that include students in grades 7 and 8.
  • COUR-8 – Classes in Mathematics Courses in High School and COUR-10 – Classes in Science Courses are limited to classes that include students in grades 9 through 12.
  • This logic pertains to tables:

COUR-1a – Grade 7/8 Algebra I Classes

COUR-8 – Classes in Mathematics Courses in High School

COUR-10 – Classes in Science Courses

  

 


Number of Classes Taught by Certified Teachers


Number of Classes Taught by Certified Teachers - the Highly Qualified Status (STH.CA) is checked for the teachers of classes reported in COUR-1a, COUR-8 and COUR-10 against the code(s) selected on the Certified Teacher area of the Codes tab. Counts of certified teachers should be based on the Fall Reporting date. If block scheduling is used (MST.BL > 1), then counts will also include counts of certified teachers on the Spring Reporting date.



  • This logic pertains to tables:

COUR-1b – Grade 7/8 Algebra I Classes Taught by Certified Teachers

COUR-9 – Classes in Mathematics Courses in High School Taught by Teachers with a Mathematics Certification

COUR-14 – Classes in Science Courses in High School Taught by Teachers with a Science Certification

 

 

 

COUR-2a – Grade 7 Algebra I Enrollment Indicator

 

This indicator does not display on the Results page, but it is populated in the extract with either a Yes or a No. If COUR-3a includes any student counts, it will be populated with a Yes, otherwise it will be populated with a No.

 

 


COUR-2b – Grade 8 Algebra I Enrollment Indicator


This indicator does not display on the Results page, but it is populated in the extract with either a Yes or a No. If COUR-3b includes any student counts, it will be populated with a Yes, otherwise it will be populated with a No.




Student Enrollment in Algebra I Courses

 

Algebra I (various grade levels) – an unduplicated count of students enrolled in the courses selected in the Algebra 1 list on the Courses tab. 




  • Students counted will be in specific grade levels and enrolled in the courses selected in the Algebra 1 list on the Courses tab.  The program will check the Block Schedule (MST.BL) field in the MST table to determine which Reporting Date to be used. For the Algebra I tables student enrollment counts are taken based on the end of the course. For regular scheduling the count is based on the SpringEnd Date which is a date at the end of the school year. For block scheduling where a full-year course can be taken in one semester (MST.BL > 1) counts are based on a date at the end of the first term (Fall End Date) and a date at the end of the second term (Spring End Date).  The program will then use Course Attendance (CAR) to verify that the student was enrolled in the course on the reporting end date(s).
  • Per CRDC guidelines the student enrollment in Algebra I counts will be applied to their primary enrollment school when they are counted in the class, even if they are taking the Algebra I class in a different (concurrent enrollment) school.
  • This logic pertains to tables:

COUR-3a – Student Enrollment in Algebra I in Grade 7

COUR-3b – Student Enrollment in Algebra I in Grade 8

COUR-6a – High School Student Enrollment in Algebra I - Grades 9 & 10

COUR-6b – High School Student Enrollment in Algebra I - Grades 11 & 12

  • COUR-3a – Student Enrollment in Algebra I in Grade 7 is limited to classes that include students in grade 7.
  • COUR-3b – Student Enrollment in Algebra I in Grade 8 is limited to classes that include students in grade 8.
  • COUR-6a – High School Student Enrollment in Algebra I - Grades 9 & 10 is limited to classes that include students in grades 9 and 10.
  • COUR-6b – High School Student Enrollment in Algebra I - Grades 11 & 12 is limited to classes that include students in grades 11 and 12.
  • See ENRL-1 for additional information on demographic breakdowns.

 

 

 

Students who Passed Algebra I

 

Passed Algebra I (various grade levels) – an unduplicated count of the students included in the Algebra I enrollment counts tables (COUR-3a, COUR-3b, COUR-6a, COUR-6b) that passed Algebra I during the 2017-18 school year.




  • The Testing Pass Status (TPS) table is used to determine the count of students that passed Algebra I. The TPS table must be up-to-date to produce accurate totals. If you find that the counts are low you can run the Graduation Requirements report at the School level for each secondary school to update the Algebra I pass status fields (TPS.ALG and TPS.AGR). NOTE: for schools with no Graduation Requirements table (REQ), often this will be middle schools or K-8 schools, running the Graduation Requirements report will display a message that "No information is available to print". This is correct, the graduation requirements are not set up at the school, but the TPS.ALG and TPS.AGR fields will still update for students that have met the Algebra I requirements. Please refer to the Algebra I Requirements documentation for more information on how to set up the Algebra I requirements. 
  • Only the students included in the counts for tables COUR-3a, COUR-3b, COUR-6a and COUR-6b are evaluated.
  • Per CRDC guidelines the students whose passed Algebra I counts will be applied to their primary enrollment school when they are counted in the class, even if they are taking the Algebra I class in a different (concurrent enrollment) school.
  • This logic pertains to tables:

COUR-4a – Grade 7 Students who Passed Algebra I

COUR-4b – Grade 8 Students who Passed Algebra I

COUR-7a – High School Students who Passed Algebra I - Grades 9 & 10

COUR-7b – High School Students who Passed Algebra I - Grades 11 & 12

 

 

 

COUR-5a – Grade 8 Geometry Enrollment Indicator

 

This indicator does not display on the Results page, but it is populated in the extract with either a Yes or a No. If COUR-5b includes any student counts, it will be populated with a Yes, otherwise it will be populated with a No.




Student Enrollment in Other Math and Science Courses


Other High School Math and Science courses – an unduplicated count of students enrolled in the courses selected in the Algebra 2, Advanced Math, Calculus, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, or Physics lists on the Courses tab. 



  • Students counted will be in the specified grade and enrolled in the courses selected on the various Math and Science lists in the Courses tab.  The program will check the Block Schedule (MST.BL) field in the MST table to determine which Reporting Date to be used. For regular scheduling the count is based on the Fall Reporting date. For block scheduling where a full-year course can be taken in one semester (MST.BL > 1) counts are based on the Fall Reporting date and on the Spring Reporting date.  The program will then use Course Attendance (CAR) to verify that the student was enrolled in the course on the reporting date(s).
  • Per CRDC guidelines the student enrollment in High School Math and Science counts will be applied to their primary enrollment school when they are counted in the class, even if they are taking the class in a different (concurrent enrollment) school.
  • Students may be counted in more than one table for the same subject area if they are taking more than one of these courses, for example Geometry and Calculus, or Chemistry and Physics.
  • Students enrolled in two or more courses in the same subject list (such as Trigonometry and Precalculus in Advanced Math, or Botany and Genetics in Biology) should only be counted once.
  • This logic pertains to tables:

COUR-5b  – Student Enrollment in Geometry in Grade 8

COUR-9a – Student Enrollment in Mathematics Courses in High School – Algebra 2

COUR-9b – Student Enrollment in Mathematics Courses in High School – Advanced Mathematics

COUR-9c – Student Enrollment in Mathematics Courses in High School – Calculus

COUR-9d – Student Enrollment in Mathematics Courses in High School – Geometry

COUR-11a – Student Enrollment in Science Courses – Biology

COUR-11b – Student Enrollment in Science Courses – Chemistry

COUR-11c – Student Enrollment in Science Courses - Physics

  • COUR-5b – Student Enrollment in Geometry in Grade 8 is limited to classes that include students in grade 8.
  • The other tables, COUR-9a, COUR-9b, COUR-9c, COUR-9d, COUR-11a, COUR-11b, and COUR-11c are limited to classes that include students in grades 9 – 12.
  • See ENRL-1 for additional information on which records are included in the counts as well as demographic breakdowns.

 


COUR-12 – Single-Sex Academic Classes Indicator


This indicator does not display on the Results page, but it is populated in the extract with either a Yes or a No. If COUR-13 includes any class counts, it will be populated with a Yes, otherwise it will be populated with a No.



COUR-13 – Single-Sex Academic Classes Detail


Single Sex Academic Classes – an unduplicated count of classes (sections) by school for various subject areas. The Single Sex Academic Class Definition selection on the General Settings tab will determine if the MST.SX field or the CRS.TGN field will be used to identify the single sex classes. Classes that have either MST.SX or CRS.TGN flagged with an 'F' or 'M' will be analyzed. The program will check the Block Schedule field in the MST table for these classes to determine which Reporting Date to be used. For regular scheduling the count is based on the Fall Reporting date. For block scheduling where a full-year course can be taken in one semester (MST.BL > 1) counts are based on the Fall Reporting date and on the Spring Reporting date.  The program will then use Course Attendance (CAR) to verify that the student was enrolled in the course on the reporting date(s).
