Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives AMAOs are achievement objectives for English learners that corporations must meet that receive Title III funds. The AMAOs are split into three sections and each section must be met for the corporations to meet the annual AMAOs. The AMAOS are based on LAS Links and ISTEP.
Part 1 – Making Progress Percent of Limited English Proficient K-12 whose performance increased 12 or more scale points from their most recent prior test to the Spring 2011 LAS Links. State Target – 47% State Performance – 64% MSDWT – 74% Did MSDWT make this AMAO? Yes.
Part 2 - Attainment Percent of LEP students who attained a Level 1-4 of English language proficiency on a prior LAS Links test and increased to an overall/composite Level 5, Fluent English Proficient, and at least a Level 4 in each language domain (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) in Spring 2011 LAS Links. State Target – 12% State Performance – 13% MSDWT Performance – 8% Did MSDWT make this AMAO? No.
Part 3 – Adequate Yearly Progress School corporations receive an affirmative Spring 2011 AYP determination based on meeting the States 2011 performance and participation targets for both ELA and Math. Did MSDWT meet AYP for the LEP subgroup? Yes. Did MSDWT make this AMAO? Yes.
What does this mean? MSDWT did not make AMAOs for the school year because it did not have enough of levels 1-4 moving to level 5 with at least a 4 in all domains.
What can you do? Level 4 students still need English language development. These students may seem to be fluent due to their proficiency in speaking and their basic interpersonal speaking skills, but these students still need development in Listening, Reading, and Writing. Provide all modifications and accommodations as required on the Individual Learning Plan (ILP) Engage students in all domains of language Frequently check for understanding Provide consistent and meaningful feedback on language Teach, focus, and reinforce academic vocabulary Use Sheltered Instruction Observational Protocol (SIOP)
Utilize the ELP Standards These standards provide a link between the Indiana academic standards and the English learners. They describe what LEP students know and can do at each proficiency level. Apply to all contents. Drive lesson planning to incorporate activities in all domains of English Should be used by all teachers to inform instruction so EL students are able to access the core curriculum. Use these standards when co-planning with your EL teacher
ELP Standard Example Standard 4 - Writing Beginner (Level 1) ELP Write simple words, phrases, or sentences with assistance. Early Intermediate (Level 2) ELP Follow an outline provided by the teacher to write a brief paragraph of two to three sentences. Intermediate (Level 3) ELP Develop a main idea with some supporting details on given topic and express with simple spoken and written sentences. Advanced (Level 4) ELP Identify a clear purpose and supporting details and express in a paragraph.
ELP Standards Standards can be found in PDF and Word format on the IDOE website as well as the MSDWT website. Library/elp.shtml
