McRel’s Evaluation System Training Session 1 May 14, 2013 Herbert Hoover Middle School
What is an SGP? Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) measure achievement gains within 4th through 8th grade Language Arts Literacy and Mathematics, referred to as the “tested grades and subjects.” Using the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK), SGPs compare the change in a student’s achievement from one year to the next to that of all other students in the state who had similar historical results (the student’s “academic peers”). For teachers of tested grades and subjects, SGP counts for 30 percent of the overall evaluation rating.
What is an SGO Student Growth Objectives (SGOs) for their students at the start of the year and are assessed on whether those objectives are met at the end of the year. These are district-developed assessments and should be used where available to identify the measurable goals for each objective. Teachers also may use collaboratively developed assessments for SGOs, including portfolios of student work. Teachers of non-tested grades and subjects are required to set at least two SGOs; a teacher’s ability to meet or exceed his or her SGOs counts for 15 percent of the overall evaluation. Teachers of tested grades and subjects are required to set at least one SGO; a teacher’s ability to meet or exceed his or her SGO(s) counts for 15 percent of the overall evaluation.
