## Academic Growth

As with achievement, Hawaii recognizes the importance of student growth as a key component of academic performance. Student and school growth are measured using two models: the Hawaii Student Growth Percentile Model for students taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), and Transition Matricies for students taking the Hawaii State Alternate Assessment (HSA-Alt) and the Kaiapuni Assessment of Educational Outcomes (KAEO). Together, these models provide important information to track student and school progress over time. Data as of 2022-2023.

## Median growth percentile

Median growth percentiles (MGPs) indicate how much a school's achievement is growing compared to other schools. MGPs are based on the large majority of students taking the SBA in language arts and mathematics. This model conditions on prior achievement, therefore, the results are comparable regardless of a school's student demographics and community characteristics.

## Kaiapuni Assessment of Education Outcomes (KAEO)

## Alternate assessment growth measure

## Median growth percentile breakdown by student groups

These graphs allow for SBA ELA and math growth comparisons between Hawaii's major race/ethnicity groups and high-needs groups.

## Kaiapuni Assessment of Education Outcomes breakdown by student groups

These charts allow for KAEO Hawaiian language arts and math growth comparisons between Hawaii's major race/ethnicity groups and high-needs groups.

## Alternate growth measure breakdown by student groups

These charts allow for HSA-Alt ELA and math growth comparisons between Hawaii's major race/ethnicity groups and high-needs groups.
