Student progress

Worth a deeper look:

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

Average student progress (also known as student growth) means different things. In some states, the average progress is so low, a majority of students are not ready for college and career. It also depends on the school's test scores.

Average progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but keeping up with their peers.

Average progress with high test scores means... students have strong academic skills and the school is contributing to student learning at about the same rate as other schools in the state.

Parent tip:

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to help students grow and reach their full potential.
