Texas uses two types of measures to track student progress: projection measures (i.e., the Texas Projection Measure) and growth measures (i.e., the vertical scale and TAKS–Alt Growth Measure). Projection measures predict future student performance from current performance. Projection measures do not specifically evaluate student score changes across past years, although the models are developed based on the score changes of previous cohorts of students. Growth measures, by contrast, track student performance from grade to grade. Read more about the Student Progress Measures.
