Format: PresentationsImplications 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.
Format: PresentationsBuilding State Capacity About Key Measurement and Evaluation Issues
The workshop focused on three IDC SSIP white papers: Implications of Growth Modeling for SSIP; Performance Indicators As a Tool for Measuring Progress Toward a SIMR; and Considerations for Making Changes to SIMR Baseline and Targets. During the workshop, participants were able to talk to and learn from participants from other states and provide input for the development of IDC white papers that address growth modeling, measuring progress toward a SIMR, and changing baseline and targets. The three white papers are currently in draft form and undergoing revisions based on input from the field. Published papers will be posted to the IDC Resource Library and affiliated as companion resources to the handout posted for this session.
