- AYP-Adequate Yearly Progress 2006

Measuring AYP in New Mexico

Background:
Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, states and school districts are required to make annual Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) determinations for districts and schools, respectively. The ultimate goal of AYP is to have all students proficient in reading and math by the year 2014. The New Mexico Public Education Department, in collaboration with numerous representatives of schools districts and related education organizations, has developed the definition of AYP for New Mexico and the exact formulas to calculate it.

Making AYP:

In order for a SCHOOL to make AYP, all of the following requirements must be met:

  1. Achieve a 95% participation rate in state reading and math assessments.

  2. Reach targets for either proficiency or decrease non-proficiency in reading and math. Note: the decrease non-proficiency option is not applicable for 2005-2006 because this is a baseline year for the standards-based assessments.

  3. Reach targets for one other indicator – attendance rate for elementary and middle schools and graduation rate for high schools.

In order for a school DISTRICT to make AYP, all of the following requirements must be met in the three grades spans, elementary, middle, and high school:

  1. Achieve a 95% participation rate in state reading and math assessments in all three grade-spans.

  2. Reach targets for either proficiency or decrease non-proficiency in reading and math. A district must miss the performance targets IN ALL THREE GRADE SPANS IN THE SAME CONTENT AREA before it can be judged as not making AYP in the performance target area. Note: The decrease non-proficiency option is not applicable for 2005-2006 because this is a baseline year for the standards-based assessments.

  3. Reach targets for one other indicator in all three grade spans – attendance rate for elementary and middle schools and graduation rate for high schools.

To assist the public in understanding the process for evaluation of AYP, the PED has produced a "HOWTO" for evaluating AYP entitled "How to make adequate yearly progress (AYP - Quick Reference Guide."
