Student progress

A worrisome sign:

Students at this school are making less academic progress given where they were last year, compared to other students in the state.

Depending on the school's test scores, student progress (also known as student growth) means different things.

Low progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point and falling farther behind their peers.

Low progress with high test scores means... students have strong academic skills but that the school is not contributing to student learning as much as many schools in the state.

Parent tip:

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to improve its programs.
