IMPACT ON P-12 STUDENT LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
(CAEP Standard 4, Component 4.1)

Student Growth Percentiles (SGP) describe a student’s growth relative to students with similar prior achievement on state tests. Percentiles range from 1 to 99, with higher percentiles indicating higher academic growth. All students of all prior achievement levels have the opportunity to demonstrate all levels of growth. For more information please visit www.gsgm.gadoe.org. The growth model uses two years of prior test data as pretest scores; however, one year is used when multiple years are not available (such as for 3rd graders). Students must attend 90% of the instructional time in the course for their data to be included in the growth score for teachers’ evaluations. Annual calculations of student growth for SGP grades and courses are based on state assessment data (Georgia Milestones End of Grades [EOG] and End of Courses [EOC] in ELA and Mathematics).

SGP ratings are grouped in four levels to determine a score for Teacher Effectiveness Measures:

  • Level I: <50% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level II: ≥50% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level III: ≥80% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level IV: ≥90% demonstrates expected or high growth AND ≥50% demonstrates high growth

SGP Ratings by Level - First Academic Year after program completion

  • A total of 45 completers were rated in their first year of employment during 2015-2017.
  • A total of 30 completers were rated in their first year of employment during 2016-2018.
