Most useful data for tracking student growth over time.

Which reports are best for showing student growth over time besides the SRI? My program has students that entered the program as sixth graders, and are still in it in eith grade. We are looking to see what gains they have made to see if the program is effective for them. Thank you!

    Lexile growth is an effective measure. I'd also look at what students are doing in the software. The READ 180 Student Reading Report can have the dates altered over longer time periods. It would give a picture of software progress over time. The other report I would look at would be the Reading Counts Student Reading Report will also give scores over a teacher-determined time period. Those will give you guides to student progress.
