The N.C. Department of Public Instruction defines growth as an indication of the progress that students in the school made over the course of a grade or class. Students enter grades and courses at different places; some have struggled while some have excelled. Regardless of how they enter a grade or course, students can make progress over the course of the school year. The state’s accountability report designates growth in the following ways: exceeded growth expectations, met growth expectations or did not meet growth expectations.
