At KIPP, we emphasize data-driven instruction and tangible growth in both Reading and Math for our students. We use NWEA, a nationally-normed assessment, to measure literacy and mathematical growth throughout all of our students, and we also analyze our ISTEP+ Results as well as predict our ISTEP+ growth through the state’s Acuity test.
The NWEA tracks growth in Math and Reading for all KIPP students. Our goal is that all KIPP students will growth at least 2 years worth in both Math and Reading during a single school year.
For the 2011-2012 school year, on average, KIPP Indy students grew as follows, from fall 2011 to spring 2012:
5th grade Math: 2.3 years
5th grade Reading: 2.0 years
6th grade Math: 2.2 years
6th grade Reading: 2.3 years
7th grade Math: 2.9 years
7th grade Reading: 1.6 years
8th grade Math: 2.1 years
8th grade Reading: 1.7 years
We are excited to share our passing data from the 2012 ISTEP+ test, demonstrating high achievement and growth among our students for the 2011-2012 school year!
2012 ISTEP+ Results
English/Language Arts: 65% Passing
Mathematics: 80% Passing
Both Math and ELA: 60% Passing
Thanks to the tremendous dedication and hard work of our staff, students, and parents, KIPP has seen substantive increases in these critical testing areas. We look forward to even more improvement in the 2012-2013 school year! These results will not be available until the summer of 2013.
