Language Proficiency for English Learners
English language proficiency measures whether students learning the English language are on target to develop or attain English language proficiency within six years. Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) are used to determine whether students are making adequate growth annually to meet these targets. SGPs describe a student's learning as compared to other students sharing the same performance history as the student, or the student's 'academic peers.' English language proficiency is measured based on performance and growth on the WIDA ACCESS 2.0 assessment. Only students identified as English learners who spend most of the school year enrolled at the school are included when reporting the proficiency and growth.
