This paper introduces a simple and intuitive graphical display for transition table based accountability models that can be used to communicate information about studentsâ€™ status and growth simultaneously. This graphical transition table includes the use of shading to convey year to year transitions and different sized letters for performance categories to depict yearly status. Examples based on Michiganâ€™s transition table used on their Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) assessments are provided to illustrate the utility of the graphical transition table in practical contexts. Additional potential applications of the graphical transition table are also suggested. Accessed 5,463 times on https://pareonline.net from June 28, 2011 to December 31, 2019.
