Growth model work group makes final recommendations

Beginning with the 2015-16 State Report Card, South Dakota will begin incorporating academic growth as one of three School Performance Index indicators at the elementary and middle school levels.

In 2014, the growth model work group selected Student Growth Percentiles as the most appropriate model to measure academic growth in South Dakota. This growth model is only for the purposes of the SPI. It will not be used to measure student growth for teacher evaluations.

Now the group has established the process for awarding SPI points for academic growth.
