Webinar: Interpreting and Using the State Growth Measure in Washington Schools
In 2013, OSPI hosted a webinar with panelists Karen Owen, Principal of Nisqually Middle School, and Sara Rich, Assessment Director of North Thurston Public Schools, to discuss using SGPs in student conferences, professional learning communities, and for benchmarking purposes at the district level.
This report, written by the developers of the SGP model for Washington, provides summary statistics on the 2013 SGPs and details on how student growth percentiles and growth-to-standard targets are calculated.
