I also agree! I am a huge advocate for celebrating growth at whatever amount it might be at their instructional level. It is hard to get others to follow that celebration as for me in a testing grade, it isn't true growth unless they show it on the EOG test. How crazy is that?? That test does not show you how well a student reads and comprehends together. It is a marathon test to see how well you can read several passages, answer several questions, and stay awake long enough to remember everything your read 8 passages later. I can't wait until they go away! We start a new writing EOG for all subjects next year, so that will be interesting to see how they will rate growth.

      You are right Sarah. It is important to help each child see their progress/success and celebrate their individual growth instead of always focusing only on the expectation levels set by the state.
