Schools in your selected Area(s) will be ranked according to test scores for the GRADE you select. Test scores are segmented by grade for every school, which provides an opportunity to possibly uncover schools that are improving from the bottom up, meaning the lower grades are outperforming the higher grades on standardized tests. Testing starts in the 3rd grade, there is no data for K-2nd grade.
ECD is short for economically disadvantaged. Research has shown that high standardized test scores have more to do with the socio-economic status of the parents of children at a school as opposed to how well the school is teaching. Ranking schools according to how well economically disadvantaged students are performing on standardized testing could be more informative about how effective a school is at teaching. This article is the inspiration for this new ECD ranking option
