Improving Academic Achievement: The Colorado Department of Education Growth Model

Maximize student progress over time. Identify schools and districts producing the highest sustained growth rates. Answer essential performance and achievement questions about the student, the school, and the district. The Colorado Department of Education (DOE) Growth Model does all of this and more.

Learn how the highly regarded Colorado Department of Education Growth Model was developed, how it is used today, and how you can apply it.

  • See how the Growth Model indicates each student’s progress and predicts performance of that student on state standardized tests.
  • Learn how the Model provides progress reports for state constituencies.
  • Watch a demonstration of the Private Growth Application, and how it is being applied by Colorado schools and districts—drilling down to Individual Reports.
  • Hear about Colorado’s reporting requirements around its statewide, standardized achievement testing (CSAP) and the solutions for meeting those requirements.
  • Discover how you can measure student growth and predict achievement, as well as inform teachers and principals, in your own school systems—one of the criteria for the “Race to the Top” grant funding.
