Given the new accountability models driven by ESSA, it’s no longer enough to focus solely on proficiency. We’re also required to show that students are growing within and across school years—and that they’re developing the knowledge and skills they’ll need for success in an increasingly competitive world.

In this edWebinar for education leaders, an assessment expert will share insights on analyzing student growth scores, along with tips for using growth data to enhance curriculum in your school and across your district. You’ll explore:

  • Methods for measuring student growth—and which method is the most useful
  • How to determine whether students’ growth is adequate
  • What to do when growth falls below expectations
  • How to demonstrate growth to students, their families, and the wider community

This edWebinar will be of value to kindergarten through high school principals, school and district leaders, assessment directors, curriculum directors, and federal program directors. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
