SGP is a measure of how much a student improves his or her state test performance from one year to the next compared to students across the state with a similar score history.
Frameworks in Use by Various Groups
Over the past year, the Department has worked with teams of accomplished professionals from several groups representing educators in specialized roles. This collaboration has resulted in the creation of role-specific evaluation instruments that districts may choose to adopt. While the Department does not require the use of these instruments, we support the educator groups in their efforts to promote the use of tools that address the specific job responsibilities of their members. As the Department continues to develop guidance for staff members in specialized roles, we will continue to learn from these groups and their partner districts during their first year of utilizing these evaluation instruments, which are listed below:
