Data SGP (Student Growth Percentiles) is an open source software package that uses longitudinal educational assessments to generate statistical growth plots. Running on R, it requires users to be proficient with its use before proceeding further. Macomb and Clare-Gladwin ISDs have made their data compatible for operational SGP analyses using this software, and many districts in New Jersey have adopted its use.

SGP provides students with a percentile score that illustrates their relative performance compared to academic peers. A percentile score can range between 1 and 99 and indicates which percentage of students had higher or lower relative performance than them – for instance a score of 75 indicates more growth than 75% of their academic peers.

Student growth percentiles are calculated through quantile regression, which uses mathematical algorithms to compare previous scores with current year scores. Students considered “academic peers” are those in their grade, subject, or assessment who have followed similar scores from one year to the next; teachers and parents can use growth percentiles as an indicator for how much their children have improved or declined relative to these academic peers.

This method may lead to spurious correlations due to factors like cohort design or teacher/school characteristics, with no guarantee that all students remain under one instructor throughout their educational career. Therefore, Macomb and Clare-Gladwin have made their data available in formats which allow districts to look up information on individual instructors by matching unique identifiers associated with test records against instructors’ names in Macomb’s and Clare-Gladwin’s sgpData sets – specifically using its INSTRUCTOR_NUMBER field in their sgpData sets sgpData sets to do just this task.

Accessing information is vital for the success of any student, but especially so for those struggling academically who require extra assistance in order to advance in their studies. Luckily, many different online resources exist that can assist these students.

SGP software offers schools an effective, free, and user-friendly database solution for tracking student growth over time. By merging data from student information systems with SGP software’s data collection capability, teachers can use SGP to identify at-risk students quickly and provide interventions tailored to each student’s individual needs – helping ensure students make the most out of their education experience.
