CPS Data – ISATs online, No big CPS book printed this year

September 14, 2010 at 4:55 pm 3 comments

I just noticed that the 2010 ISAT scores are now available for viewing, which is like Christmas morning for data geeks like me.

Take a look here to find a school of interest:


Input the school name and scroll down to the ISAT over time Excel files.  Without ELL are the scores that exclude English Language Learners (who by nature of language barriers, will likely bring down a school’s test scores.)  For the whole school, look at ISAT Over Time with ELL.
Column G is Grade.  For the whole school scores, scroll down to the rows that say 3rd through 8th grade combined and look at the row that says 2010.  Columns I,J,K show the % of kids who Meet/Exceed IL State Standards.  If you scroll to the right, you’ll see more breakouts.  If you scroll down, you can find breakouts by race, gender, and free lunch status.  Interesting stuff.

In other news, I just found out that the big CPS School guidebook (like the phonebook of CPS) will not be published in printed form this year, but will only be online.  This is such a shame.  I get it, but it can be handy to have it in a form where you can flip through page by page.  I hope it’s redesigned for online usage, as it didn’t always translate well to the web.  That will be ready in late October.

    Thank you for posting this. Very informative. Coolest thing on there was seeing Waters School’s scores. Their 3rd grade reading scores were at about 20% in 2001. Now, in 2010, they are at 90%. Wow. Awesome. This is a neighborhood school that should be incredibly proud of its teachers, children, principal and community. I love it!

    The test scores have been out since June. I just presumed everyone knew so I didn’t blog about it. This is the first year that I remember where we didn’t have to wait for ISBE to post them on October 31st. I always go to the cps research site on a regular basis to see new reports on schools. Parents should check that site on a regular basis!

    Thanks for the update on the Big Book. I wont be snooping around for it this year.
    I aways thought it was such a waste of money to print up those darn things. With that said I will miss my coffee table sized cps book. Maybe now I can throw out my accumulated collection!!! sob, sob
