How can your school district respond?
Personalized Academic Growth Monitoring
Academic growth is an important student outcome to assess the progress of individual students, and to assess the effectiveness of equity initiatives. That said, not all student growth measures are the same. As an industry, we need to move beyond comparing student growth rates to national or state averages, toward student growth that compares students to themselves in a personalized way. This is accomplished by setting growth projections for students based on their own longitudinal profile. This shifts the conversation from comparing students or groups of students to each other toward a growth mindset that rewards students showing continuous improvement.
ECRA’s personalized student growth analytics help districts monitor student progress and document the impact of equity-related programs and interventions.
