About the Performance Index

  • Ohio uses the Performance Index (PI) to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year.
  • The PI scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student.
  • The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.
