Longitudinal Student Assessment Data
A dataset comprising a subset of five years of state assessment reading data suitable for student growth percentile
and percentile growth projection/trajectory analyses. The dataset is used in examples provided in the documentation
studentGrowthProjections functions, and serves as an exemplar for user construction
of their own datasets for growth percentile analyses.
All datasets used with
studentGrowthProjections must be specifically formatted as wide format files. The first
variable/column is the student ID variable. The next set of columns provide the grade of the student across all the years provided in the dataset (possibly missing).
The last set of columns provide the scales scores of the student in the respective grades. Multi-year operational analyses benefit from putting data in long format.
