Measuring students' expected growth in mathematics is an indication of how well schools are preparing students to know and understand the content of the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards, which will prepare them to be successful in postsecondary education and the workforce.
Growth expectations are established based on students' last assessment results and are set based on average improvements of students with similar score histories on statewide assessments. The student growth is determined based on whether the student assessment result was above or below the established expectation. It is important that we see academic progress among all Minnesota students. Academic success contributes to economic success and quality of life.
In 2015, 49% of Minnesota students were at or above expected growth in mathematics.
