This analysis started in 2012 and repeats at two year intervals.  Unlike other systems of ranking schools, the “CAP” report card compares multiple years of state test results to the expected result given the socioeconomic makeup of a school’s students. This allows for a more comprehensive view when evaluating school performance. The Mackinac Center’s analysis of public high schools report uses school-level assessment of academic performance based on a four-year average of state standardized tests.
