Student Information

A student growth percentile (SGP) describes a student's growth compared to other students with similar prior 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. 

At some point in the future, SGPs may be used as one of the multiple measures for an individual's student growth impact rating.Districts may eventually use SGPs as one component of teacher evaluations.
