Academic Growth

Mean Growth Percentile (MGP)

The Mean Growth Percentile (MGP) for students offers a dynamic way of looking at academic growth by comparing a student’s growth with that of his or her academic peers. The MGP is only used for students in grades 4-8 and requires two consecutive years of assessment results. Growth is expected for both high-achieving and struggling students regardless of academic proficiency. Schools must demonstrate that their students are advancing.

If a student scored very low last year, how did he/she score this year as compared to the other students who scored low last year? The average (or mean) growth percentile for all students in a school will be within the following range:

1
(lowest MGP)
50
(average MGP)
99
(highest MGP)
