2013-14 Student Growth Percentile (SGP)

Student Growth Percentile

The Georgia Department of Education released Student Growth Percentile (SGP) for the 2013-3014 school year. SGPs describe a student’s growth relative to other
students with similar prior achievement (students who have a similar score history).   Go here to find out more about Student Growth Percentile and how it’s calculated.
Your school’s Median SGP:
Austin ES, Briarlake ES, Chesnut ES, Dunwoody ES, Evansdale ES, Fernbank ES, Hawthorne ES, Huntley Hills ES, Kingsley ES, Kittredge Magnet, Midvale ES, Montgomery ES, Livsey ES, Vanderlyn ES, Wadsworth Magnet
Look up district and school SGP data across the state here. Educators have access to detailed SGP data for their students and teachers through the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS).  Note: This data is based on growth from FY13-FY14.
SGPs are used as a measure of student progress in the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). SGPs are one of multiple measures used to provide an indication of teacher and leader effectiveness in the Teacher and Leader Keys Effectiveness Systems (TKES and LKES).
Below are DeKalb’s Median SGP scores.  With a few exceptions, the SGP data suggests DeKalb Schools’ students are falling behind faster than the other students across the state.
