Student Academic Progress
Are students in Idaho improving enough on state assessments to be proficient in three years?
Academic growth recognizes the improvement a student achieves from year to year, toward mastery of grade level content standards. In measuring progress, a student does not need to be currently proficient. Instead, he or she only has to be showing sufficient improvement to meet those standards in the future. Idaho considers a student to be making adequate progress on the statewide assessments in ELA/Literacy and Mathematics if he or she demonstrated enough growth to be “on track” for proficiency in three years.
