STUDENT GROWTH PERCENTILES
Student growth percentiles compare a student's growth to her/her peer group with similar prior test scores. This method of calculation allows educators, parents and students to see actual growth, from year to year as compared to his/her peer group. Not only do we want to know if a student is meeting standards, we also want to know if a student is making academic growth, and is the rate of growth on par with peers?
Using the student growth percentiles gives educators a better understanding of student progress as a whole and individually.
