We are currently using the Growth Projection as a end of year goal for students. However, growth is being measured not by how much a student actually grew, but their growth in relation to the projection. Ex. Fall Score=197 Projected Growth=208 Spring Score=203 Year End Growth for student= -5
Is this a common practice? How are others using the projected growth in relation to year end growth? Are there any resources available to support other ways to measure overall student growth?
