This document discusses the theoretical and practical issues states will face as they design and implement statewide achievement growth models to be used with accountability systems. Examples of growth models in use are presented wherever possible. It is assumed that few state agencies will have staff with all the expertise needed to implement growth models, therefore information about when and how to contract for needed services is discussed.
