All Kentucky educators will have a local contribution to their Overall Student Growth Rating based on their Student Growth Goal, and all 4-8 grade English and Math teachers will have an additional state contribution based on their Student Growth Percentiles.

State Growth Contribution:

Student Growth Percentiles

A student growth percentile (SGP) measures change in an individual student’s performance over time. It shows each student’s rate of change compared to other students with a similar test score history. The rate of change is expressed as a percentile. The students with whom the student is being compared is referred to as the students’ “academic peers.”
Each student’s SGP, the median SGP for each section taught by a teacher, and the median SGP for all students (taught by a teacher) in the test subject area will be used as data for the state contribution of Student Growth. For more information, please visit the Student Growth Percentile Medians page.
