Academic Growth

These graphs show the median growth percentiles for the CMAS and SAT assessments, in both mathematics and English language arts. Colorado calculates student growth for the mathematics and English language arts assessments. A student growth percentile (SGP) defines how much relative growth a student made, compared to that student’s academic peers. The median is then calculated by taking the individual student growth percentiles of all the students in the group being analyzed, ranking them from lowest to highest, and identifying the middle score. First, select a subject area (Content), and then select an assessment (Assessment).
