Nevada SchoolPerformance Framework

School Year:

How are the school performance index scores computed?


The Nevada School Performance Framework or NSPF produces an index score based on 100 points for each of Nevada's public schools. The basis was determined using the performance of Nevada schools from the 2010-2011 school year. These thresholds determine leveled criteria that are rooted in the relative performance of Nevada schools. All of the indicators in the NSFP are measured against established criteria which define 5 levels. The maximum points possible for each indicator are determined by schools that perform at the 95th percentile of schools in that index. In this way, the NSPF sets high but attainable goals for all of Nevada's schools. The indicator levels and associated points can be found on the tables below. It is important to note that points are determined using the actual rates earned by schools, but when these rates are displayed on the school performance reports, they are rounded to the nearest tenth.

*Please note that some of the point criteria differ from year to year. Ensure that the point index criteria and the school report you are using are from the same school year.
