Technical Challenges4Growth Review - AGPWith 2015 Smarter Balanced scores, Adequate Growth Percentile (AGP) cannot be calculatedIn order to make growth predictions, we first need to understand the probability distribution and growth toward proficiency

Technical Challenges5Calculating Biennial SGPPros:Positive Growth (1st through 99th Percentile)Progress Indicator of Idaho Core ImplementationIndependent from Score and Proficiency Level

Cons:Challenging Interpretation Possible Misuse of Data due to Missing Year and Changing Assessmentsi.e. Use for Teacher Evaluation, Accountability RatingsPossible Technical Difficultiesi.e. Measurement Bias, Floor Effect, Subject Changes

6Calculating and Using Biennial SGP for Star RatingPros:New Star Rating

Cons:Biennial Growth for Annual School DeterminationNo AGPExclusion of 3rd and 4th Graders
