Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM)
The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) is used by the Georgia Department of Education as a performance measure and provides information to assist districts and schools in promoting and improving college readiness for all students. CCRPI was first implemented in 2012 and included multiple measures of school performance. The 2018 redesigned CCRPI was developed to support the following goals:
- Increase achievement for all students
- Make progress in closing achievement gaps
- Increase literacy and numeracy
- Increase graduation rates
- Increase student college and career readiness.
This redesigned framework focuses on the five components of content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness, and graduation rate. The overall CCRPI is reported on a 0-100 point scale.
