Impact on P-12 Student Learning and Development

Student Growth Percentiles (SGP) describe a student's growth relative to students with similar prior achievement on state tests. Percentiles range from 1 to 99, with higher percentiles indicating higher academic growth. All students of all prior achievement levels have the opportunity to demonstrate all levels of growth. The growth model uses two year of prior test data as pretest scores; however, one year is used when multiple years are not available (such as for 3rd graders). Students must attend 90% of the instructional time in the course for their data to be included in the growth score for teachers' evaluations. Annual calculations of student growth for SGP grades and courses are based on state assessment data (Georgia Milestones End of Grades [EOG] and End of Courses [EOC] in ELA and Mathematics.

SGP ratings are grouped in four levels to determine a score for Teacher Effectiveness Measures:

  • Level I: <50% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level II: >=50% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level III: >=80% demonstrates expected or high growth
  • Level IV: >=90% demonstrates expected or high growth AND >=50% demonstrates high growth

Teaching Effectiveness After Program Completion

Teacher Assessment on Performance Standards (TAPS) ratings are administered through the Georgia Department of Education to all teachers employed in Georgia public schools in the field in which they were prepared. For each candidate, the first available TAPS earned during three academic years following program completion are reported. A teacher is scored from 0-3 on 10 performance standards (3 being the highest); these standard scores are added together for a sum score with a possible range of 0-30. The TAPS performance standard rating range is Level I to Level IV, with Level III being the expected rating for proficiency.

Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing Requirements

In order to be identified as program completers, the GaPSC requires that all Initial Preparation Program Candidates attempt the Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) exams that align with their area(s) of certification. The GaPSC also required candidates who completed programs prior to 2020 to complete the aligned Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA) portfolio assessment.
