Data SGP – Exploring Student Growth Percentiles and Projections

data sgp

Data SGP is an online tool designed to assist educators in exploring student growth percentiles and projections. Teachers can use it to assess how their students compare with academic peers and pinpoint areas where improvement needs to take place. Regular updates provide teachers with insight into current trends from Star testing program assessments as well as historical growth trajectories for all those students who have taken them in order to compare performances across assessments. The Star testing program data set also contains details regarding construction and scoring of each assessment administered as well as recent scores, SGP scores for that particular assessment along with historical growth trajectories of all other students who took that test over time – an invaluable resource that gives teachers insight into student performances across assessments as well as providing regular updates from Star data set updates containing updates of new results regarding trends or results from testing program assessments taken during testing programs like Data sgp and Star data set results regarding what to focus on to improve in terms of improving results in terms of scores from Star assessments constructed and scored as well as recent SGP scores along with historical growth trends/ results/ results/ results/ results of star testing program assessments taken and scored; it also provides students/teachers/ teachers/assesses taken; information such as: how Star assessments have been constructed/scored, historical growth trajectory information about how Star assessments have been constructed/scored, scores/ results etc; current growth trends/ results/ results that particular assessment.

SGP database was designed to be compatible with large community databases like Genbank and EarthChem, yet we take a different approach in gathering our data. While traditional research consortia and full community databases seek to store and make accessible all of their data sets, our goal is to collect only those pieces which address specific research questions related to Earth history. Working on engaging questions together offers individuals and institutions incentive for contributing their information to SGP database.

The SGP Database houses four data sets used by the SGP Package as examples to assist users in setting up their own SGPDatadata for Student Growth Percentile analyses: sgpData, sgpData_LONG and sgptData_LONG are presented in WIDE format while LONG formats (sgpData_LONG and sgptData_LONG) offer time-dependent analyses while instructor level summaries of student SGP progress can be created using look up tables within these data sets.

SGP also maintains data from other sources, such as the National Center for Educational Statistics and external providers of test data; as well as public and private sector organizations that offer assessment services.

SGP database data are accessible to educators with an active Star account. To access it, navigate to your Star dashboard and choose “SGP” under Reports in order to view it. SGP reports are divided into two types, Window Specific SGPs based on data available from previous testing windows for each student and Current SGPs that provide comparisons among academic peers over a specified time period using current information about them. SGP reports are automatically updated based on each student’s most recent Star test scores and projections from their most recent testing period. SGP provides schools and districts a way to measure student progress as they move through different testing windows during the year. While SGP should not replace standardized tests or provide comprehensive assessments of student achievement, teachers should still use various measures to monitor progress as well as support their pupils.
