About the Top 10s

PennCAN ranks schools in key areas so parents can compare schools to one

another. We use these rankings to generate Top 10 Lists, which show the

top-performing schools in four different areas:

ƀɠLow-income student performance

ƀɠBlack student performance

ƀɠLatino student performance

ƀɠPerformance gains

Each subgroup’s performance score is an average of their reading and math

proficiency at the highest tested grade level in that school.

In order for a school to be on the Top 10 list for black student performance

and low-income student performance, at least 50 percent of the students in

that school must belong to that subgroup. To be on the Latino student

perfor-mance Top 10 list, at least 10 percent of the students in that school must belong

to that subgroup.

For example, to be included on the low-income student performance Top

10 list, at least 50 percent of the students in that school must be low-income

students.
