A Practitioner's Guide to Growth Models clearly describes different ways to calculate student academic growth and to make judgments about the adequacy of that growth. It helps to clarify the questions that each model answers best as well as the limitations of each model. This Guidebook was commissioned by and advised by two of CCSSO's State Collaboratives: TILSA (Technical Issues in Large-Scale Assessment) and ASR (Accountability Systems & Reporting). It is intended to support states as they address the challenges of evolving assessment and accountability systems.
