Student progress

Very concerning:

Students at this school are making far 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.

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

Very 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 other 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.
