In a recent Edmentum research study titled State-Level Student Growth Strategies, we provide descriptions of commonly used growth models and information about school accountability systems to examine how the growth models contribute to the system. For this blog post, we’ve synthesized some of that work to help illustrate the value of growth strategies in state accountability measures, and we include examples of models found across 20 different U.S. states.
