Colorado Growth Model

The Colorado Growth Model

For the past decade, Colorado has been a national leader in how to measure a student's academic growth from year to year.  About ten years ago, the state created the Colorado Growth Model to look specifically at how individual students progress from year to year based on the state standards. It provide another dimension of performance beyond just achievement on tests by describing the relative growth of individual students from year to year.  The model provides information for many different student populations and identifies areas of strength and areas that may need more support.  It also supplies necessary growth data for the annual school and district accountability ratings.
