Gain a complete understanding of students’ achievement and growth

While achievement indicates whether a student’s performance is below, above, or on par with grade-level expectations, growth explains the progress a student is making over time.

Star Assessment reports include student achievement and growth scores to provide a complete picture. Student Growth Percentile (SGP) scores, reported in Star Assessments, compare each student’s growth to that of his or her academic peers nationwide and provide a measure of each student’s achievements.
