Under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) waiver, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) has a new system of accountability for all schools.
The Multiple Measurements Rating (MMR) is a system that is the primary way MDE measures school performance. The MMR looks at proficiency, growth, achievement gap reduction and graduation rates. Using the MMR, MDE identifies schools for recognition, and improvement by designating a percentage of Title I schools as Priority, Focus, Continuous Improvement, Celebration Eligible and Reward schools.
