The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is moving toward a new and comprehensive system of computing student gains (Academic Growth over Time), which helps us know how much students have progressed on standardized tests from one year to the next. This provides a more complete picture of student learning because it compares a student's performance to his/her own expected performance (rather than comparing groups of students one year to different groups of students the following or preceding year).
Academic Growth over Time (AGT) also allows us to examine the impact of schools and educators on student learning outcomes and uses a value-added method that controls for external factors which often influence student test results. The Board of Education and the Superintendent have been committed to the selection of the most relevant and accurate statistical model to compute school-level AGT results for each of our schools. Later in the year, we will provide educators with their AGT results in a confidential manner.
This portal provides access to AGT reports and information.
AGT data is one piece of useful data in understanding the complex picture of student learning. We encourage you to examine these results alongside our School Report Cards.
To learn more about our plans to utilize AGT as a part of a multiple measures performance review with personalized support and development, please visit the LAUSD Supporting All Employees website.
