Performance Frameworks - Academic Growth


Academic Growth

The performance framework is built around a range of student outcome measures organized beneath three performance indicators: Academic Achievement, Academic Growth, and Postsecondary & Workforce Readiness. For the Academic Growth performance indicator, the framework assigns ratings based on median student growth percentile (MGPs) and Percent On-Track to Proficiency calculations that are generated using the Colorado Growth Model. At the elementary and middle school level, Academic Growth metrics are determined for CMAS English Language Arts and Math, and the English Language Proficiency Assessment. At the high school level, PSAT/SAT Evidence Based Reading & Writing and Math are used for growth determinations.

The displays reflect by grade levels, median growth percentiles by assessment for all students and by sub-groups along with their assigned ratings. The color of the triangle indicates the calculated ratings with each colored bars indicating the range of scores associated with the possible ratings.
