What is the ELL Reclassification Report on the Data Portal?
 
Many districts have used the DORA Profile letter score for ELL reclassification. The profile essentially sorts students' DORA scores into three groups: Decoding, Vocabulary, and Comprehension. Students receive a letter score of A to H. Students with H profiles are "at" or "above" grade level in all three areas relative to their decimal grade.

The downside of the profile score is that it is very rigid. "At" or "above" grade level is defined by the gap (score - decimal grade) for each student for ALL grades.

While the profile score is good for teachers when putting students into groups or for schools in getting a "diagnostic" snapshot of their students by grade, it doesn't quite work for all ELL reclassification. And the reason being that in practice many students at urban schools end up having marginally to moderately low vocabulary as they move from middle school into high school. And these students are not necessarily EL students.

Thus, this report makes a modification in how the profiles are defined for students in grades 8 and above. Decoding and Comprehension gaps still need to be within grade level (more than one year below). But the Vocabulary threshold is slightly lowered. See below.

Grade 8:
H:
If Vocabulary => 6.83; Decoding and Comp. "on grade or above."
Grade 9 to 12+:
H:
if Vocabulary => 8.17; Decoding and Comp. "on grade or above."

In the Extract these are the two new variables:
EL_ReClass_Profile: This is the new A to H Profile definitions for EL
EL_ReClass: This is either "Yes" or "No." H is "Yes." All others "No."

Note these are the default adjustments. Other threshold options are available or you can ask about costs to create your own district thresholds.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
