How Results are Reported Grades 6-8

Composite Performance Index(CPI)measures how close a school or district is to having all students score in the Proficient/Advanced categories

Student Growth Percentiles

• A new way of measuring student progress

Tracking Student Progress

• MCAS performance level and scaled scores answer, “How much has this student achieved compared to the state’s grade- level learning standards?”

• SGP answers the question, “How much has this student achieved over the previous year compared to his or her academic peers?

• Compares students to “academic peers” (those who had similar historical MCAS results)

• SGP indicates how a student’s growth is compared to that of peers

Student Growth Percentile (SGP)

Laura has three years of MCAS scores: 230, 230, and 230. Based on her academic peers’ performance, her SGP for year 3 is determined to be 35.

A percentile is a statistic that indicates the percentage of a reference group obtaining scores equal to or less than the individual’s score.

SGP, A Visual Example

Laura’s SGP of 35 means 35th percentile. Imagine her academic peers as100 people standing in a single file line from highest to lowest score.

A person who scored in the 35th percentile is 35th from the end.

end of line = lowest score

34 people are behind of her.

65 people are in front of her.

front of line = highest score 262

School/District Growth Percentiles

• SGPs are created for each school and district .

• SGP represents a “typical” growth for students in the school or district (Half will be above 50; half will be below 50.)

Interpreting MCAS Results

• Look at student performance from “achievement” and “growth” perspective.

• Students with history of poor MCAS scores may make progress, but still not reach Proficient level.

• Students with a history of very high MCAS scores may be Proficient or Advanced, but have a low growth score.

Percent at Each Performance Level, Composite Performance Index (CPI) & Student Growth Percentile (SGP)

Grade 8 – Science & Technology/Engineering East

• Means progress towards 100% of students achieving proficiency by 2014

• Measures progress against specific expectations each year

• Reported annually

Strategies for ImprovementNext Steps

• Analyze and use data

• Individual student analysis■Item analysis

• Cohort analysis■ Growth data

• Examine curriculum

• Use formative assessment

• Support sub-groups with Special Ed and ELL staff

• Provide test-taking strategies and practice

• Provide tutoring at High School through academic support grant

• Provide after school MCAS support

• Provide Title I, remedial math and reading support to targeted students

• Develop individual student success plan (ISSP)

• Engage parents and the community in student efforts
