Even Florida doesn't get the Growth thing right.

Florida is widely thought to have to most comprehensive student information system in the US. This piece lays out the impact of not being selected for as a growth model pilot in pretty stark terms.
If it had been accepted, an estimated 43 percent of Florida's schools would have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under NCLB. Without it, only 29 percent are expected to make AYP, down from 36 percent last year.
With numbers like that, it is no wonder that states are concerned about access to this alternate method to show student progress.
