For the first time ever, this year's MCAS Parent Reports will include growth model data. We recognize that this is a new, and somewhat confusing system, that may leave many parents with questions. To help address that need we have developed an online tutorial geared specifically for parents. The tutorial is in powerpoint format with audio, but requires no special software to us. I would encourage you to post this on your school and district websites, present it to your school committees and distribute as widely as possible to ensure that parents and other members of your communities understand what the growth model represents. The tutorial is posted at http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/growth/tutorial2.html
