Student Growth Measures Information

Student academic growth measures will be part of all Kansas educators’ evaluations as a significant factor in 2014-2015. "Significant" is defined as showing student growth in multiple ways.  It is not expected that student growth as part of the evaluation will be used to "inform personnel decisions" until 2017-2018.

Kansas educators have long used student growth measures to indicate levels of student growth. Some assessment measures are purchased because they are deemed valid and reliable and are intended to depict a specific knowledge or skill demonstrated by the student. These are referred to as commercial assessments. Other district or regionally created measures are referred to as local assessments.
