Georgia Student Growth Model

  • On this page, you will find information to help you understand your child's Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM) Report that provides information on your child's academic progress during the 2016-2017 school year. This report will provide you with Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs). SGPs describe how much academic progress your student made relative to academically-similar students -- other students across Georgia with the same achievement history -- from one state assessment to the next. This provides you with and apples-to-apples comparison on how much growth your student demonstrated, relative to other students who started in the same place. With this model, all students have the opportunity to demonstrate all levels of growth. This means we are able to not only identify low-achieving students who are making progress towards becoming proficient, but we are also able to identify high-achieving students who could be challenged further.
