Implications of Growth Modeling for SSIP: Measuring Growth Within the SSIP Process

Growth models provide states with an option for determining how to measure progress toward a student level SIMR outcome. Participants discussed and provided input into development of an IDC white paper that focuses on different growth model approaches, the data requirements, and analytic approach in order to use a growth model approach to measure growth toward a SIMR student outcome. Currently, the white papers is in draft form and undergoing revisions based on input from the field. The published paper will be posted to the IDC Resource Library and affiliated as a related resource to the handouts already posted for this session.
