Student Growth Percentage (SGP)
What is the SGP?
A Student Growth Percentile, or SGP, compares a student’s growth to that of his or her academic peers nationwide. Academic peers are students in the same grade with a similar scaled score on a STAR assessment at the beginning of the time period being examined. SGP is reported on a 1–99 scale, with lower numbers indicating lower relative growth and higher numbers indicating higher relative growth. For example, if a student has an SGP of 90, it means the student has shown more growth than 90 percent of academic peers.
If you have the SGP as your Student Growth Measure for OTES, your growth category is determined by your SGP. This chart indicates where your SGP falls for the categories. If your SGP is 90, your growth category is Most Effective.
Let's look at our school SGP
We want to take a look at SGP (Student Growth Percentiles)
- Log in (the picture above is a link)
- Go to Enterprise Home (a list of all features is now on the screen)
- scroll down to GROWTH PROFICIENCY CHART, now click on it
This is our school's SGP:
SGP is 46
This overall percentage is not at at our 80% goal.
A 46 SGP doesn't meet our goal of 60.
How are we doing? Compared to 2014
Our SGP for Winter 2014 was 58. We are down 12 SGP this year. We have ground that needs to be made up!
Here is a comparison by grade level:
5th Grade SGP is up 7! Good sign as 5th grade value-added was low last year.
6th Grade is remaining consistent.
7th grade is down 20 SGP! Percent proficient is down 14%!
8th grade is remaining consistent.
