IDEA and NCLB: The Disparity between Value-Added Growth Standards and Adequate Yearly Progress
Bittinger, Karl E.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
Student academic achievement results in mathematics from one middle Tennessee school district were evaluated to determine if a difference existed between growth experienced and proficiency level achieved on unit assessments and the TCAP Achieve. In addition, TCAP Achieve mathematics value added scores of middle school students with disabilities from the 16 largest districts in Tennessee were evaluated to determine if a difference existed between growth experienced and proficiency achieved. There were indications that students with disabilities which met or exceeded expected growth did not achieve the identified proficiency levels necessary to meet Adequate Yearly Progress. This study led to a recommendation that student growth be considered when evaluating the performance of the subgroup of students with disabilities.
