The Indiana Growth Model uses a statistical model to calculate each student’s progress,
or growth, on state assessments. The Growth Model can be used to display students, school
and district results. Based upon the Colorado Growth Model, the Student Growth Percentile
method assesses the growth of every student by comparing individual students to students who
begin at similar levels of achievement to determine relative growth over time. The goal is
to focus on the outputs of education and expect progress from all students, not just those
close to passing.
