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: www.isbe.state.il.usWhat is AYP?
Scores are collected from third, fourth, and fifth grade in reading and math (Fourth grade also takes science)
Oak Park, Lincoln, and most of Illinois uses MAP testing (Measures of Academic Progress)
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.DesCartes
