Each year, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) publishes a Performance Report of the state’s schools. This online report provides information about each school, district and the state, including test performance, teacher qualification, retention, discipline and much more. It is designed to help open the lines of communication between schools, parents and the local community.
The contract between the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) and the National Office for Research on Measurement and Evaluation Systems (NORMES) expired July 1, 2013. The ADE is in the process of transitioning the data formerly posted on NORMES to a soon-to-be-released site. Until the new site is launched, school personnel should note that much of the same information is available either through the ADE Data Center, https://adedata.arkansas.gov, or ADE Quick Looks, http://arc.arkansas.gov/quicklooks. For immediate assistance, contact the School Performance Unit at 501-682-7339.
