Troubles with AYP
   Assessment and Accountability
          Summer 2008
 To review foundational tenets of No Child
  Left Behind (NCLB)
 To discuss 2008 amendment to the
  Accountability Workbook
 To identify the trips and traps that have
  caused troubles with AYP
 To review areas that have caused trouble
 To discuss potential changes to NCLB
          Tenets of NCLB
 Assess the areas of reading and mathematics
 Must evaluate one additional indicator other
  than academics
 95% participation rate

 All students must be proficient by 2013-2014

 Must report by demographic subgroups

      2008 Amendment to
    Accountability Workbook
   2% Flexibility Option
       2% Flexibility Option is a method for making AYP
        in proficiency.

       2% Flexibility Option can only be used if special
        education Proficiency Index is the sole reason a
        school or system does not make AYP.

       2% Flexibility Option allows the State to calculate an
        adjustment for the proficiency for this group of
        students in determining AYP.
Trips, Traps, and Troubles
   Four key areas
     Demographics and Coding

     Participation

     Proficiency

     Verification and Certification of
                  The Trip
   The school did not confirm and correct the LEP
    status for the students with limited-English
    proficiency in STI.
   The school did not properly identify LEP 1
    students during the Online Correction Process.
                     The Trap
    If LEP 1 students have participated in
    ACCESS, they are not required to participate in
    the reading portion of ARMT.
     LEP 1 students’ ACCESS scores are used in the
      participation calculations.
     LEP 1 students’ ACCESS scores are not included in
      proficiency calculations.
   If a student is not identified as LEP 1, the
    student is expected to have a score for ARMT
       Without an ARMT score, a student is considered to
        not have participated.
       The Trouble

The school did not make AYP.
Demographics and Coding
   Check for accuracy of STI demographics
     Name
     Grade
     Ethnicity
     Gender
     Social security number
     Meal status
     Special education status
     LEP status
     Foreign exchange student status
    Demographic and Coding
   Code withdrawn students accurately and in a
    timely manner
   Revisit the status of students throughout the
                  The Trip
   The school did not administer makeup tests to
    students since attendance indicated that the
    school never had less than 95% participation
    each day.
                    The Trap
   The school did not consider the attendance rate
    of any group other than the All Students
       Each subgroup must have at least a 95%
        participation rate.
       The Trouble

The school did not make AYP.
   N-counts at the school roll up to the system level
   Students are included in more than one subgroup
   95% participation rate applies to each subgroup
   Administer assessments to all students
      Administer appropriate subtests

      Administer make-up tests

      Student must have valid test results to count for
                     The Trip
   The school did not consider the additional
    academic indicator for any group other than the
    All Students group.
       The additional academic indicator at the subgroup
        level becomes important for Safe Harbor.
                   The Trap
   In order to invoke safe harbor, the following is
     Must have a 95% Participation Rate.
     Must have at least a 10% decrease in those not
      proficient in the previous year.
     Must have met the additional academic indicator for
      the subgroup.
       The Trouble

The school did not make AYP.
   Administer all parts of a subject-area test
       ARMT score is derived from Stanford 10 and
        ARMT, Part 2
 Rely on proficient students (Level III and
  Level IV) to make proficiency
 Level II AAA students do not count toward
 Subgroup must make its AAI in order to invoke
  safe harbor
                          The Trip
   For multiple years, the school did not complete
    the Final Status Report
       Final Status Report allows schools the opportunity
        to ensure that students are given credit for passing
        portions of the graduation exam across multiple
            This is especially important for students who may have
             taken an early administration for mathematics or science
                  The Trap
   The school did not complete the Final Status
    Report; therefore, students who had successfully
    passed the mathematics portion during the 9th
    grade had not received credit for the early
       The Trouble

The school did not make AYP.
Verification and Certification
   Verify to account for all students
     May graduates
     Summer graduates

     Exited students

     Transfer students

     Retained students

     Dropouts
Verification and Certification
   Review, correct, and certify
       Online corrections
          9-12
          K-8

     Matchback opportunities
     Final status for AHSGE
            Early takers for mathematics and biology
