Explicitly Valuing Growth

Publication Date: 2004-10-08


This presentation, made at the Center's 2004 RILS conference, emphasizes the need for designers to explicitly state how they value changes in student performance, or growth, for use in school accountability systems. The presentation also provides a practical way to measure and value student growth using vertically articulated standards, and provides suggestions and examples of some key analyses to check whether the student growth system fits the expressed values.
