About this paper
Statistical rigor and sophisticated models are essential for getting reliable results when it comes to educational policies, student support structures, and teacher, school and district evaluations. But complexity can create a quandary for those who lack statistical expertise. By providing reports that are easy to access, easy to understand and apply, and easy to communicate to stakeholders, SAS helps educators and policymakers make the most of their student growth and value-added metrics. So they will recognize how and when to continue effective practices and how to improve less effective ones.
