2009 Preview: AYP Federal Caps

The 2008 AYP Federal Cap process was implemented for the first time with results showing that the strategic process for helping campuses was very effective.

Of those missing 2008 AYP solely due to the 1% and/or 2% caps:18% (71) of districts and 1% (12) of campuses, compared to 32% of districts and 11% of campuses in 2007.

The federal accountability advisory group, Title I Committee of Practitioners (COP), met on November 18, 2008, and voted to recommend the continuation of the Federal Cap process in 2009, with no modifications.

Review of the 1% and 2% Federal Caps

Reminder: The federal cap relates to counting students as proficient for AYP purposes only and does not limit the number of students that may take an alternate assessment.

State policies and procedures related to assessment decision-making are detailed in the TEA publication titled Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee Decision-Making Process for the Texas Assessment Program.

Review of the 1% Federal Cap

Students are selected randomly from TAKS-Alt proficient results.

Exceptions to the 1% cap will be processed prior to the Preliminary AYP Release in August 2009 for:

  • School districts registered with the TEA Special Education Residential Facilities Tracking System (RF Tracker) for school year 2008-09.
  • School districts included in the 2008-09 Directory for Services for the Deaf in Texas, Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD).

2009 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.)

Exceptions Process same as prior year

School districts registered in the RF Tracker system and school districts with RDSPD that are included in the 2007-2008 Directory for Services for the Deaf in Texas were automatically applied an exception to the 1% cap.

The federal cap applied to proficient TAKS-Alt results was extended to include an additional number of students up to the statewide 1% cap limit.

The statewide 1% cap limit was sufficient to allow every school districts with an exception to include all TAKS-Alt passing students as proficient for AYP (in effect, remove the 1% cap).

Other Circumstance Exceptions same as prior year

Other circumstance exceptions were allowable and were submitted as a regular appeal through the online system.

The approval of school district requests for exceptions to the federal cap is based on the availability of statewide slots within the cap that allow the state to maintain a 1% cap limit on proficient results from TAKS-Alt.

The statewide 1% cap limit was sufficient to allow requests for exceptions based on other circumstances to include all TAKS-Alt passing students as proficient for AYP (in effect, remove the 1% cap).

Review of the 2% Federal Cap

Step 1) TEA prioritizes campuses by grades served and proportion of students with disabilities enrolled. School districts have the opportunity to review and/or modify the campus rankings.

Step 2) Student results are selected in order to maximize the number of campuses that Meet AYP beginning with the campuses assigned the highest priority.

2009 Preview: AYP Growth Proposal

January 8, 2009

USDE announces that Texas can incorporate the Texas Projection Measure in 2009 AYP calculations contingent on:

meeting the requirements in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with USDE concerning TAKS-Alt, and

discontinued use of Confidence Intervals (CI) and Uniform Averaging for determining the AYP status with fewer than 50 assessments (small numbers analysis).

2009 preview texas ayp workbook
2009 Preview: Texas AYP Workbook

On January 30, 2009, TEA submitted requested amendments to the U.S. Department of Education for the 2008-09 AYP evaluation.

The cover letter summarizing the requested may be viewed at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/ayp/amend2009.pdf

Amendments to the 2009 AYP Workbook:

Incorporate the Texas Projection Measure (TPM) in AYP evaluations.

Remove references to the use of confidence intervals and uniform averaging in small numbers analysis.

Amendments to the 2009 AYPWorkbook (cont.)

Provisions for districts impacted by Hurricane Ike:

A separate Hurricane Ike student group will be created that includes all students enrolled in districts, campuses, and charters who were displaced by Hurricane Ike. This separate student group will be evaluated for participation only.

School districts or campuses that were closed for ten or more days due to Hurricane Ike and are located in a county designated by FEMA as a disaster area that miss AYP will receive a 2009 AYP status of Not Evaluated.

2009 preview texas projection measure
2009 Preview: Texas Projection Measure

TPM provides an estimate for how individual students are likely to perform in the next high-stakes grade (grades 5, 8, and 11) after receiving instruction in grade-level content.

For example, students in grades 3 and 4 who take reading and mathematics TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), or LAT TAKS will be projected to meet the passing standard in grade 5.

2009 preview texas projection measure cont
2009 Preview: Texas Projection Measure (cont.)

Students’ 2009 Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), TAKS (Accommodated), and LAT scores in both reading/English language arts and mathematics, along with the campus-level mean scores in the projection subject, will be used to predict their performance in next high-stakes testing grade.

For example, a student’s 2009 reading and mathematics TAKS scale score and the mean campus scale score in reading will be used to project the reading scale score for the student in the next high stakes grade level.

2009 Preview: TPM in AYP

Who may use TPM in 2009 AYP Calculations?

Student taking both reading/English language arts & mathematics in the same test version language (English or Spanish) of: TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), or Linguistically Accommodated Testing (LAT) TAKSwill have data that can be used to predict their performance for 2009.

2009 preview tpm in ayp cont
2009 Preview: TPM in AYP (cont.)

How is TPM used in 2009 AYP Calculations?

Students who are predicted to meet proficiency will be counted in the numerator of the AYP percent proficiency calculation along with students meeting the standard, and this new percent would be compared with the AYP targets to determine if the performance standard for percent proficient is met.

Performance Rate is compared to the 2009 AYP Targets of 67% in Reading/English language Arts and 58% in Mathematics

Participation Rate calculations are not affected.

AYP Performance Improvement/Safe HarborThe Growth proposal states “The inclusion of the TPM in AYP calculations will not change the way the performance gains criteria are applied.”

Federal regulations 34 CFR 200.20(b)(1)) require the state to define successfully meeting the AYP safe harbor calculation if:The percentage of students [in a student group] below the State's proficient achievement level decreased by at least 10 percent from the preceding year.

AYP Preview: Final Title I Regulations

The regulations were subsequently reviewed by US Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

On April 1, 2009, the Secretary announced his intent to repeal the requirement that a State revise its Accountability Workbook with respect to its definition of adequate yearly progress (AYP) and submit those revisions for peer review.

The Secretary supports the provisions in the October 2008 Title I regulations regarding graduation rate.

2. Graduation Rate Goals/Targets for 2010 AYP

Set the states’ goals for the high school graduation rate, including annual graduation rate targets that reflect continuous and substantial improvement from the prior year toward those goals.

The states’ intermediate target for graduation rate must be applied to the 2010 AYP evaluations.

Include goals and intermediate targets in the AYP Workbook submitted for Peer Review.

3. Graduation Rate Data Disaggregated Cohort/ Student Groups for 2012 AYP

Regulations require Graduation rate evaluations for each student group in 2012 AYP results.

Texas meets the required reporting of all the graduation rate for student groups.

Currently all seven student groups are used to evaluate the Performance Improvement/Safe Harbor calculation (All Students, African American, Hispanic, White, Economically Disadvantaged, Special Education, Limited English Proficient).

4. Extended-Year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate

Regulations allow states to propose one or more extended-year adjusted cohort graduation rates that take into account students who graduate in more than four years.

The extended-year adjusted cohort graduation rate must be used with the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate in determining AYP.

States may request an extended-year graduation rate as early as the state desires to use such rates.
