New Tool for Student Growth Calculations: Data Goes In, Ratings Come Out

wendyz@michiganprincipals.org's picture

Calculating student growth for evaluations is hard; and doing it correctly is even more difficult. State law says it has to be based on three years of data from multiple measures. For teachers of tested grades and subjects, half of the student growth rating must be based on the three most recent years of state test data, or whatever is available. Starting next school year the weight rises to 40% of an evaluation, increasing the significance of evaluating performance. And to top it all off, districts are responsible for rostering and aggregating the data, and then calculating ratings for individual teachers, building administrators and central office administrators. Stressed yet?

We’re here to help! MASSP is proud to be working with Eidex to help ease this pain point for administrators and districts. Their tools aren’t just for financial analytics anymore! We’ve taken collaboration to the next level to develop Eidex’s new School Evaluation Module – a highly automated solution that helps you calculate student growth data from multiple measures and years. Simply put: assessment data goes in, student growth ratings come out.
