##### This example: mathematics performance at the San Jose Unified School District.
San Jose Unified math proficiency
Zero+ meets standard.

• Any result above zero is proficient; below is not proficient. • There is a 99% chance that results will remain the same in coming years, which is to say, between the Upper and Lower Control Limits (the gray lines).

1. It shows the scale! The highest possible score is 200, the lowest is -300. Zero is the minimum standard.

2. It shows the average.

3. It clearly shows there is little change. The Upper and Lower Control Limits are three (3) standard deviations away from the average.

This means that in subsequent years, if the system doesn't change, there is a mathematical likelihood of 99% or more that the results will remain between these control limits.

In other words, this chart shows what the follow-the-schedule method "wants". NOT what teachers want. NOT what you want. What the system wants — the system being Taylor's follow-the-schedule method.

In summary, this is a very useful chart! It shows there is no improvement happening in mathematics performance in the San Jose Unified School District -and- there is an extremely small chance of future improvements if San Jose Unified doesn't change to a method which "wants" something different.

Ed-Data has produced a beautiful chart directly from numbers provided by the California Department of Education (CDE). https://www.ed-data.org/district/Santa-Clara/San-Jose-Unified

The data which feeds this chart comes from the following table, which likewise can be found here at Ed-Data. The numbers in this table come directly from CDE. For example, "20 %", the first number in the table below, comes from line number 2,703,729 under the column Percentagestandardexceeded in this data table for the year 2015.
