This paper includes methods for states to diagnose district functioning in research-based dimensions that correlate to positive student achievement gains on standards-based assessments. The tool includes both a metric calculator that analyzes data for distance of each subgroup and the group overall from the AYP targets, and a set of scoring rubrics that evaluate the district's or school's status against these research-based dimensions.
