Student Growth Percentiles (SGP)

A student growth percentile (SGP) describes a student’s growth compared to other students with similar test scores (their academic peers). Although the calculations for SGPs are complex, information can be shared in percentile terms that are familiar to most teachers and parents. This site provides and overview of SGPs, a method of measuring student academic growth.

An Overview of the SGP Web Tool

This tool provides an easy format to view school and district median SGPs in comparison to proficiency levels. Users can view data from different school years by subject, grade level, organization, and/or subgroup.

What's New

SGP data for the 2014-15 school year is available on the web tool. We anticipate SGP data for the 2015-16 school year will be added to the web tool in October.

Data downloads for all years can be found on the SLDS K-12 Data and Reports Static Data Files web page by clicking on Assessment under Subject Area and then scrolling down to SGP files.
