CDE’s Growth Model &Growth within CCSD
Assessment & Evaluation, October 2012
Creating Meaning:How will I recognize “notable change” in performance over time?
General “rules of thumb” for identifying percent P/A changes that may be significant between a moderate to high level of certainty:
KEY CONCEPTS FOR UNDERSTANDING GROWTH
Office of Assessment & Evaluation
Student Pctls Sorted Pctls Median Pctls
Student growth percentiles
Median Growth for this school is 55
Search for the middle value…
Each year for each student, the State projects the growth necessary for that student to score at or above Proficient in 3 years or by grade 10
76 is the minimum-this student’s adequate growth TARGET
Each year for each student, the State projects the growth necessary for that student to continue to score at or above Proficient for 3 years or until grade 10.
50 is the maximum -this student’s adequate growth TARGET
What does the “Adequate Growth Percentile” calculation mean for classrooms with a high proportion of very Unsatisfactory or low scoring Partially Proficient students?
What does the AGP calculation mean for classrooms with high proportions of Advanced or high Proficient students?
Student Growth Percentiles (SGP) from the Colorado Growth Model tell us how a student grew compared to other students in the State with the same CSAP performance starting point.

KPI Reports, Summary page
Total points are summed across all elements. The final percent of points earned is the result of total points earned divided by the total points possible. For middle & elementary schools, the total number of points possible is 70. For high schools, the total possible is 80.
The State longitudinal growth percentile allows us to compare the average growth of our students with average growth for students in the State with similar starting points.
The objective is for CCSD schools to meet or exceed the State median growth percentile for students with similar performance starting points (i.e., median growth percentiles at or above 50).

Results include all students with valid CSAP scores in 2007 & 2008 EXCEPT students who participated in CSAP-Alternate, were expelled or withdrew during testing,
or were new to the school after October 1.

The objective is for all student subgroups in CCSD to meet or exceed the State median growth percentile for students with similar performance starting points (i.e., median growth percentiles at or above 50).

Results include all students with valid CSAP scores in 2007 & 2008 EXCEPT students who participated in CSAP-Alternate, were expelled or withdrew during testing, or were new to the school after October 1.
Calculations are included for all four ethnic groups regardless of numbers of students. Native American Indian student groups are not summarized due to very small N's across all grades & schools.
Student program labels are taken from the CSAP test booklets and preprinted labels.

Creating Meaning:What types of information should I look for on reports?
Levels of Analysis
Views of Results
TCAP BObj reports provide several “lenses” through which to examine school results. From different views, you can create a complete picture of summary school performance and growth.
