Every student should have meaningful access to the educational resources he or she needs at the right time, at the right level, and with the right intensity. Making this happen requires that everybody, including parents and teachers, knows what their schools need to do to improve. To help, NDE created the Accountability for a Quality Education System, Today and Tomorrow (AQuESTT), a system of support and classification of schools and districts.
- AQuESTT Classification provides an easy way to illustrate the overall performance of a school and considers the broader educational experiences and success of each student.
- AQuESTT Classification combines performance on several indicators grouped by tenet to provide schools and districts with an overall descriptive classification of Excellent, Great, Good, or Needs Improvement.
- Schools and districts will receive their AQuESTT Classification on October 9, 2019. Schools eligible for an Evidence-based Analysis (EBA) adjustment will receive their final AQuESTT Classification on November 27. All other schools may consider their October 9 Classification final.
