Parents and Schools Have New Tool to Track Student Progress

State SealBeginning with the new school year, parents and schools will have a new tool to track students' academic progress. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has released its Student Growth Model that will help stakeholders better understand and analyze the progress students make year to year. According to the GaDOE, their new accompanying web tool, , will allow parents and members of the public to view visualized student-growth data. The current data is based on the 2012-2013 school year. Data reflecting 2013-2014 school year will be available on the site in late fall.

According to State Superintendent Dr. John Barge, "Teachers will be equipped to provide more complete and individualized instruction, and parents will be better prepared to help their students improve areas of weakness. As a result, learning in our public schools should improve."

The web tool will allow parents, educators and members of the public to drill down into student-growth data by district, grade level, student group, assessment, and subject area. Parents will receive individual student-growth reports, and teachers will be able to view individual student-growth data for each of the students they teach. In order to protect student privacy, the public will only have access to aggregate data by district and school.

In addition to its primary purpose – improving teaching and learning by providing an additional way of analyzing student performance – the GSGM is utilized in the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) for the Progress determination and as one of multiple indicators of educator effectiveness in the Teacher Keys Effectiveness System (TKES) and Leader Keys Effectiveness System (LKES).
