Measuring student growth is challenging because school districts cannot use the same single student assessment for all teachers. They can use value-added ratings from the state assessments when available. If those are not applicable for a given subject or grade, districts can choose to use other assessments provided by national testing vendors and approved for use in Ohio. For subjects without state assessments or approved vendor assessments – such as art or music – districts should establish a process to create student learning objectives to measure student progress.
The ground system receives the raw data from GOES-R series spacecraft and generates Level 1b and Level 2+ products. The ground system also makes these products available to users in a timely manner consistent with the GOES-R series latency requirements. Level 1b data from each instrument and Level 2+ data from the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) are distributed to direct readout users with antenna receives by means of spacecraft relay as GOES Rebroadcast (GRB). Level 1b products and Level 2+ products are provided to the Product Distribution and Access (PDA) System for users including the Comprehensive Large Array-data Stewardship System (CLASS) data archive.
