ABCs of AYP

New Curriculum Directors Presentation

September 2008

Overview

• AYP Criteria for School and System Determinations

• Non-standard Schools

• Needs Improvement

Participation

### Participation

• Participation N Size = 40

• US ED and GaDOE expect 100% participation

• AYP requires 95% participation

• Participation Rate = number of students who tested

number of students continuously enrolled during the state testing window

• State Testing Window Dates:

• CRCT = April 6, 2009 – May 8, 2009

• GHSGT = March 16, 2009 – April 3, 2009

Annual Measurable Objectives

For a student to be considered FAY, he/she must be continuously enrolled from the day before the October FTE count day through the close of the State testing window.

October FTE Count Day – October 7, 2008

FAY Dates

CRCT: October 7 – May 8

GHSGT: October 7 – April 3

### Absolute Bar

This calculation is not an average of scores. The numerator values represent the number of passing scores in Reading and in ELA. The denominator values represent the number of tests taken in Reading and in ELA.

RELA* = R(meets + exceeds) + ELA(meets + exceeds)

R(tests taken) + ELA(tests taken)

*Pulls from FAY Participants

GAA English Language Arts portfolio assessment score is counted for both Reading and ELA.

Enhanced GHSGT - Performance Levelsfor AYP Purposes

• Mathematics

• Basic: Scale scores 400 to 515

• Proficient: Scale scores 516 to 524

• Advanced: Scale scores 525 to 600

• Language Arts

• Below Proficiency: Less than 200

• Basic Proficiency: Scores between 200 and 234

• Advanced Proficiency: Scores between 235 and 274

• Honors: Scores of 275 and greater

The percentages posted on this page are a result of the Reading/ELA AMO Calculation Formula. However, the list of student names that results from clicking on an underlined number represents ELA data only.

A student may have passed either Reading or ELA but not both tests.

Annual Measurable Objectives

Second Looks

Second Indicator

### Menu of Second Indicators for Elementary/Middle Schools

• Meet or exceed standard or show progress from the preceding year

• Attendance: 15% or less of students absent more than 15 days or show progress

• Percent Meeting & Exceeding:

• CRCT Science – 80% or show progress

• CRCT Social Studies – 80% or show progress

• EGWT – 80% or show progress

• Percent Exceeding:

• CRCT Reading – 35% or show progress

• CRCT English Language Arts – 15% or show progress

• CRCT Mathematics – 15% or show progress

• CRCT Science – 15% or show progress

• CRCT Social Studies – 15% or show progress

• N size: 40 or 10% of students in AYP Grade Levels, whichever is higher, with a cap of 75.

• Attendance as a Second Indicator

• Attendance Rate Criteria: Schools or LEAs with 15% or less of students absent more than 15 days or show progress over the previous year will meet the Second Indicator. To show progress for attendance a school or LEA must reduce the percentage of students absent more than 15 days from the previous year.

• Attendance Rate Explanation: Students in AYP grade levels who miss more than 15 days while enrolled at any time in school A will be included in school A's Attendance Rate formula. The days a student misses in another school is not added to school A’s rate.

• Sample case:

• School A = 10 days absent Student moves to School B School B = 3 days absent

• Student moves back to School A and misses 5 more days of school

• School A = 15 days absent

• School B = 3 days absent

• District Absences = 18 days

• Attendance Rate Calculation: Attendance rate is calculated by dividing the number of students in AYP grade levels who were absent more than 15 days by the total number of students in AYP grade levels.

• Attendance Rate =# Students in AYP Grades Who Missed More Than 15 Days

• --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

• Total # of Students in AYP Grades

• Georgia’s Graduation Rate Standard: Schools and districts must be at or above a

• 70% Graduation Rate (2008) or meet requirements using Second Looks.

• # of dropouts in 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th from appropriate years + graduates + other completers

• Worksheet available on http://www.doe.k12.ga.us/sia_account.aspx

• Actual Values: 2002 = 61.8 % 2005 = 69.4%2008 = 74.4%

• 2003 = 63.3 %2006 = 70.8%

• 2004 = 65.4%2007 = 72.3%

Note: Please refer to the 2007-2008 Consolidated State Application Accountability Workbook for additional details, including the minimum thresholds required to meet Second Look criteria.

• Schools can achieve the graduation rate standard in one of three ways:

• Step 1: Did the Graduation Rate meet the Absolute Bar?

• If yes, Graduation Rate requirement was met.

• If no, proceed to Step 2.

• Step 2: Did the Multi-Year Average (MYA) meet the Absolute Bar?

• If yes, Graduation Rate requirement was met.

• If no, proceed to Step 3.

• MYA = (# of 2008 Regular Graduates + # of 2007 Regular Graduates + # of 2006 Regular Graduates)

• Step 3: Apply the Safe Harbor Second Look( i.e., 10% Progress and prior year Graduation Rate must meet a minimum threshold). Did the current Graduation Rate increase by at least 10% from the prior year’s Graduation rate?

• If yes, Graduation Rate requirement was met.

• If no, graduation rate was not met.

### Graduation Rate Second Look Calculation

National Governors Association (NGA) Compact

• The governors agreed to calculate graduation rates by dividing the number of on-time graduates in a given year by the number of first-time entering ninth graders four years earlier.

• Under the compact, graduates are those students who receive a regular high school diploma. The denominator can be adjusted for transfers in and out of the system.

• The governors also agreed to develop data systems to track individual students with a longitudinal student unit record data system. When in place, this system will allow states to have even more accurate records of what is happening to students.

Fast Facts

• Students with Disabilities(SWD): SWD who receive Special Education Services at any time during the school year are included in the SWD group for AYP purposes.

• GAA Information - http://www.doe.k12.ga.us/ci_testing.aspx

• Science and AYP:NCLB requires that states develop academic content standards in science by 2005-06 and aligned assessments based on those standards by 2007-08. The science assessments must be administered at least once in each of three grade spans: 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12. We are required to have Science assessments for the 07-08 school year but it is unclear whether they will become part of AYP or not.

• (NCLB Act: section 1111 (K)

• ### Data Elements to Verify

The following student demographic elements should be reviewed for all students:

• Race/Ethnicity

• Economically Disadvantaged (ED) Status *

• Student With Disability (SWD) Status **

• English Language Learner (ELL/LEP) ***

• Days Absent (Excused and Unexcused)

• Days Present

• Latest Withdrawal Date

• Latest Withdrawal Reason Code

** Students who are coded as receiving special education services at anytime during the school year.

*** Students who are identified as ELL/LEP or have exited the program and are being monitored for two years.

Non-Standard Schools

High Schools

• For AYP Calculations:

• EOCT Data Used.

• Mathematics I scores represent the math requirement (Algebra I and Geometry are combined for systems that are operating under a math waiver).

• 9th grade Literature and Composition scores represent the ELA requirement.

• Second Looks may apply if AMO bar not achieved.

• Attendance is 2nd indicator for 9th and 9th-10th grade Non-Standard High Schools.

Needs Improvement Designations

• School Level NI Status

• Entering Needs Improvement (NI): occurs if the school has not made AYP in the same area(reading/ELA, math, 2nd indicator) for two consecutive years.

• Removal from NI: occurs if the school has made AYP for two consecutive years.

• Escalation in NI (i.e., increasing in levels of NI status): occurs if the school fails to make AYP in the same subject (reading/ELA, math, 2nd indicator) for two consecutive years.

• Remaining in current NI status for the following year occurs if:

• A school fails to make AYP, but does not fail to make AYP in the same subject for two consecutive years.

• A school that makes AYP for one year.

• District Level NI Status

• Entering Needs Improvement (NI): occurs if a LEA has not made AYP in the same area (reading/ELA, math, 2nd indicator) for two consecutive years at both elementary/middle school and high school levels.

• Removal from NI: occurs ifa LEA has made AYP for two consecutive years.

• Escalation in NI (i.e., increasing in levels of NI status): occurs if the LEA fails to make AYP in the same subject (reading/ELA, math, 2nd indicator) for two consecutive years at both elementary/middle school and high school levels.

• Remaining in current NI status for the following year occurs if: a LEA fails to make AYP, but does not fail to make AYP in the same subject for two consecutive years at both elementary/middle school and high school levels.
