Title:Indiana Growth Model Factsheet
Organization:Indiana Department of Education
Short Description:The Indiana Growth Model uses a statistical model to calculate each student’s progress, or growth, on state assessments. The Growth Model can be used to display students, school and district results to educators and the public.
Annotation:The Indiana Growth Model uses a statistical model to calculate each student’s progress, or growth, on state assessments. The Growth Model can be used to display students, school and district results to educators and the public. Based on the Colorado Growth Model, the Student Growth Percentile method assesses the growth of every student by comparing individual students to students who begin at similar levels of achievement to determine relative growth over time. The goal is to focus on the outputs of education and expect progress from all students, not just those close to passing.
