what is ayp

AYP stands for Adequate Yearly Progress. As a part of the No Child Left Behind Act, schools are held accountable for their students reaching certain minimum standards in several subjects. Each state conducts an annual test to measure school progress. Illinois uses the ISAT (Illinois Standards Achievement Test). The cut-off scores differ by grade and subject, but a certain percentage of every school must meet or exceed expectations to reach AYP. More information can be found on the Illinois State Board of Education website:

What is AYP?

Scores are collected from third, fourth, and fifth grade in reading and math (Fourth grade also takes science)

  • Sub groups are created, such as ethnic or low income, if there are at least 45 students in that group
  • There are three requirements to make AYP:
    • At least 95% of all students must be tested
    • 85% or more must meet or exceed
    • The school must have a 91% attendance rate

instructional vs mastery

The MAP test:

  • Provides information about the instructional
level of the student.
  • Provides a road map for students toward
achieving mastery. It is not a test for determining mastery of skills
Instructional vs. Mastery

DesCartes is a tool that NWEA offers to teachers. It can be used to identify specific needs for a particular student, based on their performance. Teachers can choose the standard and sub-skill, then select the MAP score to receive specific suggestions to most effectively assist the learner.
