Users can set goals for all locations using the HB3 Goals section but only the All Students column goals are used to populate the OnBoard Dashboard widgets unless the are toggled to show demographic data. This section will show you how to set your goals, save your goals and when you are ready, SET your goals officially to your OnBoard dashboard to be viewed by board members.
Where to start?
To set goals users must have access to and be in the OnDataSuite, OnPoint administration, goals section. Once there, click on the HB3 Goal Setting to begin the process.
Setting your goals
To set a goal start by entering the final year target goal first. This would be the final row of each column. Once you enter a value in the final target year each individual yearly goal above will increase by a calculated percentage point between the initial (current year) target goal and your final entered target goal.
Note: Individual subject, year and student group goal may be manually entered to overwrite any auto calculation.
Note: The 2019 Target was established by the 2019 TEA Accountability manual, chapter 4, closing the gaps performance targets page 45. We also have provided the TAPR result for the year to help you determine the reasonableness of your entered target goal for the first year. TAPR results will continue to be placed in the dashboard for each following year when they are released.
In the example below, the final goal of 88% was entered and each year above was auto-calculated and populated to reach the final goal incrementally
How is this calculated?
The formula used to determine the incremental targets for each year is as follows using the example above:
- Determine the minimum incremental value needed to achieve final year target.
Subtract the 2019 target from the entered 2024 target value. ( 88% – 62%) = 5.2%
- Add minimum incremental value to each year.
Add 5.2% to each year prior to determine the expected following year growth at 5.2%
(Example of 2019 to 2020 | 62% + 5.2%) = 67.2%
