SPRINGFIELD – The 2017 Interactive Illinois Report Card launched today at www.illinoisreportcard.com. The annual Illinois Report Card shows the performance and progress of schools, districts, and the state overall on a wide range of educational metrics. The Data Quality Campaign and the Education Commission of the States have praised the Illinois Report Card as comprehensive and easy to understand.
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) originally published the data on Oct. 31 on the Classic Report Card site. The data have not changed, as the data verification window closed prior to the PDF report cards publishing on Oct. 31.
Find additional data and information, including an assessments-only spreadsheet for all schools and districts, a glossary of Report Card terms, a FAQ, and a link to the Classic Report Card site at www.isbe.net/ilreportcarddata.
State-level data on the 2017 Illinois Report Card show students achieved gains in a number of indicators from the 2015-16 school year to the 2016-17 school year. Student outcomes improved in English language arts achievement on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment, the four-year graduation rate, college enrollment rates, Advanced Placement participation and success, the community college remediation rate, ninth-grade students on track to graduate, and eighth-grade students passing Algebra I.
