Student Growth Tracked Over Time:
2006 – 2009
• The tests and data system track the academic
growth of students over time.
• Example: We can see how 3rd graders in 2006
are performing as 6th graders in 2009.
• Measuring the progress of students over time
from one grade to the next: This is crucial to
the Board of Regents.
• Examining student achievement over time is a
valuable tool for districts and schools to
monitor how their practices affect academic
growth.

We will show slides in two different ways
1. In previous years, we have compared the
same grade over a series of years – like this

of students as they move from one grade to the

example shows the growth of students from 3rd

We will also analyze student
performance in 2 ways:

1. Look at the percentage of students
who progress from Level 1 and 2 to
Level 3 and 4
2. Look at increases in student scale
scores
6

What are student scale scores?

• Students are graded on a scale from the
upper 400’s to the upper 700’s.
• Students at the bottom of the scale are in
Level 1. Students at the top of the scale are in
Level 4.
• The number of students scoring at Level 3
and 4 has shown measured progress, with
gains for classes of students over time.
• But the increase in average scale scores over
time is sometimes relatively smaller.
7

What Are the Results?
1. Measured gains overall.

core curriculum in the early grades started at
a higher achievement level than did older
curriculum in higher grades, for example,

3. More of this year’s students are meeting the
standards (scoring in Level 3 & 4) than did
students in those grades 4 years ago.
8

What Are the Results?
4. Average student scale scores (as opposed to
the percentage at Level 3 & 4) show
measured progress as students have
progressed from one grade to the next.

5. Middle school performance, which was very
low when the grade 3-8 core curriculum
began 4 years ago, has improved
significantly over time.

6. Even with the improvements, many students
still are not meeting the standards.

1.   More students are scoring in Level 3 & 4
The percentage of students across all grades 3-8
who are scoring in Level 3 & 4 increased more

Why Are Average Gains in Scale
Scores Sometimes Smaller Than Gains
in the Percentage at Level 3 and 4?

– As students progressed through school,
many have improved their performance
over time enough to move over the line (a
score of 650) from Level 2 to Level 3.
– But the increase in the average scale score
over time was sometimes smaller.

4. Growth in Average Scale Scores

• Students are graded on a scale from the
upper 400’s to the upper 700’s.
• Students at the bottom of the scale are in
Level 1. Students at the top of the scale are in
Level 4.
• The number of students scoring at Level 3
and 4 had shown measured progress, with
gains for classes of students over time.
• But the increase in average scale scores over
time is sometimes relatively smaller.

Growth: Gains in average student scale
scores are small to moderate as

more students meet the standards.

When the grade 3-8 tests began in 2006, the percentage of students
achieving Levels 3 & 4 was lower in the middle grades than in the
elementary grades. But now, performance in middle school has
improved significantly.                                   Percentage of Students

Why the Progress Overall?
• Over time, the State has invested significantly
more resources in education.
• Universal Pre-Kindergarten has been expanding
and reaching more students each year.
in 2006, seems to be helping. Schools are
aligning their instruction with the grade-by-
• Schools have seized opportunities to
incorporate best practices and support
programs and are increasing professional
development to improve instruction.
