How do the component weights in the Closing the Gaps domain change if we don’t meet minimum size in one or more components?
The weighting is proportionally distributed to those components that do meet the minimum size requirements.
For example, a middle school met the minimum number of evaluated indicators in only two components. The campus does not have five evaluated indicators in the Student Achievement Domain Score: STAAR Component Only. It also does not meet minimum size for the English Language Proficiency component. The 20 percent total weight of the Student Achievement Domain Score: STAAR Component Only and English Language Proficiency components is distributed proportionally among the two remaining components.
Removing the 20 percent from the denominator of the remaining components produces their new weights. In this case, 30/100 = 30 percent becomes 30/80 = 37.5 percent. In the same manner 50/100 = 50 percent becomes 50/80 = 62.5 percent. The new weightings sum to 100 percent as shown in the chart below:
