SGP is a measure of how much a student improves his or her state test performance from one year to the next compared to students across the state with a similar score history.
mSGP Release Process
|Step 1. Access educator mSGP scores.|
mSGP reports for principals, assistant principals and vice principals will be delivered the same way they are for teachers, through NJSMART. This represents a change from prior years, when school leader mSGP reports were delivered through NJ Homeroom.
Account access and permissions are administered and managed by your district Web User Administrator.
|Step 2. Confirm that qualified educators have received a score, and if needed, access full course rosters to correct or create mSGPs.|
|NJSMART users have the ability to export a full data extract. This full export will include principal and AP/VP, teacher and student data that provides districts with all data necessary to verify educator mSGPs.|
|Step 3. Share mSGP scores and complete summative evaluations with mSGP educators.|
|In 2016-17, the mSGP counts for 30% of all qualifying educators' evaluations. To calculate a final evaluation score, mSGPs are converted to a 1.0 - 4.0 score according to the Median Student Growth Percentile Conversion Chart, then weighted and included along with the other components of evaluation.|
|Step 4. Certify all 2016-17 evaluation data through the Evaluation Score Certification Tool (ESCT), and initiate all CAPs within 25 working days of ESCT release.|
ESCT allows districts to review evaluation data, correct any errors that occurred in the original NJ SMART submission, and certify the accuracy of each staff member's final score.
Note: This year's ESCT submission requires district leaders to provide a reason for each missing evaluation if their ESCT reports show that any educators were not evaluated.
