Accountability Reports: Accountability determinations for Utah schools and districts are based on student outcomes and growth. Two major reports are created to differentiate the performance of schools and districts across the state. These reports assist in evaluating performance in reading, language arts, mathematics and science. However, it is important to note that not all grades and subjects are included due to the fact that not all grade levels and courses have statewide end-of-year assessments; Kindergarten though 2nd grade, social studies, world languages, advanced math such as calculus, health/PE, and the arts are examples.
