Understanding Assessment Results

Achievement and Growth

There are two primary ways of understanding how your child is performing on state assessments; they are Achievement/Proficiency and Growth. As parents and teachers, we have a number of measures we rely on across the year to understand your children’s academic progress. Score reports and Student Growth Plot reports should be viewed in conjunction with other information about how your child is progressing in school, such as their grades, completion of class assignments, and their collaborative and social skills. All these indicators of student performance together form a more complete picture of a student’s success in school.

OSPI provides Student Score Reports and Student Growth Plot Reports to graphically display academic growth that includes predictive growth data for next year. 

View sample Score Reports in English and Spanish. 

View a sample Student Growth Plot Report that includes a helpful tutorial, Understanding Student Growth Plot Reports in English and Spanish.  

Additional information and resources are available on OSPI's webpages for Scores and Reports and  Student Growth Percentile.
