Student Growth

When it comes to accurately measuring student growth and appropriately attributing that growth to educators, districts often have more questions than answers. The School ADvance support team includes skilled analysts with extensive experience in helping districts design viable and ethical systems for measuring, analyzing and attributing student growth
Participants in the School ADVance Implementation Network and/or the GrowthPLUS Support Network can learn how to:

  • Incorporate a state growth model
  • Develop a local growth model
  • Select and implement robust, affordable data analysis tools and resources

Dr. Patricia Reeves, co-author of the School ADvance Administrator Evaluation system and co-director of School ADvance's GrowthPLUS support network, met with the Education Alliance on October 14, 2013 to share what the School ADvance team is learning about various approaches states are using to address student growth and value added estimates for educator evaluation.
