Growth Model for School Accountability, 2016/17 Technical Report
New York State Education Department
This document describes the model used by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to measure student growth for institutional accountability in New York State for the 2016/17 school year. In 2016/17, growth models were implemented for institutional accountability in Grades 4-8 ELA and mathematics. All models are based on assessing each student's change in performance between 2015/16 (and prior years) and 2016/17 on State assessments compared with students who have similar prior performance. Revisions to the State-provided growth model will be considered in future years. The results presented in this report are based on 2016/17 and prior school years' data, with some comparison to prior-year results. This technical report contains four main sections: (1) Data -- Description of the data used to implement the student growth model, including data processing rules and relevant issues that arose during processing; (2) Model -- Description of the unadjusted statistical model; (3) Reporting -- Description of reporting metrics; and (4) Results -- Overview of key model results aimed at providing information on model quality and characteristics.
