AYP / Report Cards
About Adequate Yearly Progress
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) ratings are required by the U.S. Department of Education under the Elementary and Secondary Schools Act (ESEA). The ratings are a measure of a school’s or district’s performance of students in Reading and Math, the participation level of students taking the test and the school-wide attendance level.
If a school or district does not meet the target in any one of these areas, then the school or district is determined to have not met AYP.
AYP is a series of very specific performance targets for an entire school as well as for the different sub-populations of students within that school such as economically disadvantaged students and students receiving special education services.
About Report Cards
Under Oregon statute, the Oregon Department of Education is required to produce a report rating schools’ and districts’ performance. While this may sound a little like AYP, the way Oregon calculates the ratings is currently dramatically different than the way AYP is calculated even though the data taken into consideration is the same.
Instead of a specific percentage target, Oregon calculates ratings based on an index scale. In addition, the Oregon ratings now also take into account a growth model. This means that schools earn credit when students either meet the target benchmark scores on the state assessments or if a student met her or his individual growth target. If a student meets a growth target, this indicates that he or she is on track to meet the state targets within three years.
