students)

PI = 70/100 = 70%
Student Growth
Student Growth
25% growth for all students and 25% growth for bottom

✦Growth is measured by calculating a
Growth Index that awards points for
gains in a student’s performance across
two years or students scores that
improve substantially within a
performance level across the two years.
