The Impact of the Adequate Yearly Progress Requirement of the Federal "No Child Left Behind" Act on Schools in the Great Lakes Region. Technical Appendix
Wiley, Edward W.; Allen, Jessica
Education Policy Research Unit
This appendix describes the analytical procedures used to project the status of schools in the Great Lakes state toward meeting AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) requirements from 2005 to 2014. To "make AYP," the school as a whole and each numerically significant subgroup must meet "Annual Measurable Objectives" (annual objectives). States set their own annual objectives and these requirements increase over time toward the goal of 100% of students reaching proficiency in 2014. Reaching proficiency is measured by students meeting standards on the state assessment. In addition, each state sets the minimum student count necessary for a student subgroup to reach numerical significance. Once a subgroup reaches the minimum student count threshold, it is included in the AYP calculations. (Contains 2 tables, 3 figures and 9 notes and references.)
