Our Building Goal is Set
What is a Student Growth Percentile Score?
A student growth percentile (SGP) describes a student’s growth compared to other students with similar prior test scores (their academic peers). Percentiles are a common method of measuring students in comparison to their peers. A student growth percentile is a number between 1 and 99. If a student has an SGP of 85, we can say that she showed more growth than 85 percent of her academic peers. A student with a low score on a state assessment can show high growth and a student with a high score can demonstrate low growth. Similarly, two students with very different scale scores can have the same SGP.
Everyone supports this building goal. The Early Childhood team has a goal in the area of literacy that encourages book handling and literacy skills for our 3 and 4 year olds. Then the 4K programs use PALS as their baseline to hold that 80% of their students will know letter names, sounds, be able to rhyme, and identify beginning sounds by the end of the year. Our 5K Special Education and Title I programs work with the kindergarten students and join in supporting the overall building goal. We not only made, but surpassed our building goal last year, by working together and supporting each other. We are all readers at ELC!
