Many school districts throughout the United States are gradually moving towards a new system using student-level data to measure students’ academic progress over time and better evaluate the impact that educators are having on their students. Currently, student-level data is not widely available for all districts across California.
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has been at the forefront of rolling out such a system, and currently provides annual reports on students’ Academic Growth over Time (AGT) for its schools.
- How do you access my school’s report? School reports will be distributed electronically in the week prior to CCSA’s annual conference on March 12-14, 2013. If you are a member school and did not receive your report, please contact Melissa Barnhart at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you will be joining us at the conference in San Diego, we encourage you to attend the conference session AGT 101, which will help you interpret your report, and provide an opportunity to speak with someone who can answer all of your questions regarding your school’s AGT report.
- I have my report. How do I use it? LAUSD has generously permitted CCSA to use all of its printed resources on how to use AGT to improve your school. Simply go to agt.lausd.net/training_materials.html for more information.
- I’m a member school, but not a ZOOM! member. Can I get an AGT report? Through the generous support of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation, we are working to actively expand the number of charters for which we provide AGT reports for 2013-14. Please visit the CCSA website at www.calcharters.org or contact Melissa Barnhart at email@example.com for more information on getting this valuable resource for your school.
This webinar provides information on why growth measures are important, understanding the Academic Growth Over Time metric, and interpreting the CCSA AGT reports. It was originally recorded on April 2, 2013 and is presented by Education Analytics. If you have any issues accessing the webinar, please contact Jen Winter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
