Although the BAA Secure Site released SGPs for individual students (4th - 11th grade) in January, 2016, we concur with the strong recommendation of MDE that SGPs should NOT be used for educator evaluations in 2015/16. In fact, the current law (PA-173) does not require the use of SGPs until 2018/19 which allows three more years to stabilize state-level data. BAA has released the SGPs in order for educators to familiarize themselves with the data prior to high-stakes use in 2018/19. Here is what SGPs look like across the state, a flat distribution. That is, the same number of students in each percentile, NOT a bell-shaped curve.
