Notes for ESSA Plan Weights: "For each indicator, 'Status' and 'Change' have equal weight. In addition, each indicator is given equal weight when meaningfully differentiating schools, with ELA and Mathematics assessments considered as two separate indicators for school differentiation. Because six of the seven possible school-level indicators are academic, more weight is automatically attributed to academics without devaluing the importance of school quality (i.e., suspension rates)."
