AYP Detail Calculation Description

The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires states to establish an accountability system to evaluate the performance of public schools and school districts. In Arizona, the primary three measures used in the evaluated are:

1.      The proportion of students passing the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) test

2.      The percentage of students assessed

3.      An additional measure of school performance, which is the attendance rate for elementary schools.

If a school, district or state- passes on all three measures, then it is deemed to have made adequate yearly progress (AYP).

AYP is a measure of school-wide performance across grade and subjects. AYP is the measure of school performance and is based on the student achievement, specifically speaking the AIMS test.

The intent of this profile is to provide an overview of the parameters and business rules that make up the AYP detailed calculation.  

·        Proficiency standards: NCLB requires that every student in Arizona meet the standards in reading/language arts and mathematics by 2013-2014. The state set Annual Measureable Objectives (AMO) for each grade and subject evaluated. To meet all the criteria to make AYP an school much reach the AMOs for both mathematics and reading/language arts in each grade it offers. There are 4 ways to met the requirements for AYP.

o   Met AMO directly

o   Met AMO by using the confidence interval

o   Met AMO via safe harbor

o   Met AMO using the growth model

·        95 percent of students for each subject in every grade offered, including each applicable subgroup (see below) must be tested in order for a school or district to make AYP.

o   In addition to meeting the 95 percent rule for the entire testable population, the school must also meet the same objectives for every applicable subgroup within each grade/subject combination. NCLB specifies the following subgroups be evaluated: the five major ethnic groups- Hispanic, White, African-American, Asian-Pacific Islander, and Native American- English Language Learners (ELL), students with disabilities, and students from low-income families.

·        The additional indicator:  elementary schools must have a school-wide attendance rate at 90 percent, or show a one percentage-point improvement in attendance rate over the previous year.
