Student progress

Very concerning:

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

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

Very low progress with low test scores means 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 students in this school are making smaller gains than similar students in other schools.


Parent tip

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