Understanding Outcomes

  • The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) measures the percent of individual students
    meeting and/or exceeding set growth targets based on normative data.
    • NWEA measures of 50-70% of students meeting their individual growth targets are considered above average
    • NWEA measures greater than 70% of students meeting their individual growth target are considered exemplary
  • Growth index measures the amount of points on NWEA’s scale in which a student or group
    is above or below typical growth.
