1 Introduction to Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Michigan Department of Education Office of Psychometrics, Accountability, Research, & Evaluation Summer 2012

2 What’s New for 2011-12? Proficiency targets aligned with MEAP and MME College and Career Ready cut scores –Still need to reach 100% proficiency in 2013-14 unless Michigan is granted flexibility with ESEA –2011-12 targets reset to 20 th percentile of 2010-11 MEAP/MME proficiency keyed to CCR cut scores District report cards treated like school report cards –District is treated as one large building –Graduation is used in lieu of attendance

3 What’s New for 2011-12? Graduation rates calculated and used for all valid subgroups –In previous years the subgroup rates were displayed but not used in determining AYP EdYES letter grades are lower overall this year –Achievement scores keyed to new cut scores without a change to the EdYES grading scale –The accreditation system can only be updated through legislative mandate 3

4 4 Adequate Yearly Progress Participation - 95% tested MEAP, MME, MI-Access, or MEAP-Access Achievement - Proficiency Meet state objective or “safe harbor” target for improvement –Participation and Proficiency Must meet in both Math and Reading Must meet for whole school and subgroups Additional Academic Indicator Graduation Rate – 80% - high schools Attendance – 90% - elementary and middle schools

5 5 Student Groups for AYP Racial/Ethnic Groups –Black or African American –American Indian or Alaska Native –Asian, Hawaiian Native, or Pacific Islander –Hispanic or Latino –White –Multi-racial Limited English Proficient Students With Disabilities (Special Education) Economically Disadvantaged (Free & Reduced Lunch)

6 6 Michigan AYP Targets

7 7 50 “cells” for AYP

8 8 AYP Participation Aggregate percent tested across all grades tested at the school Total Number Tested (grades 3+4+5) Total Number Enrolled (grades 3+4+5)

9 9 Full Academic Year Students enrolled in the school for the three most recent semi-annual official count days –MME uses four most recent count days Prior Enrollment lookup is used Less than full academic year excluded for achievement (proficiency), not for participation

10 10 Feeder Codes Because the Elementary and Middle School assessment window is in the fall, feeder codes are used to attribute scores to the school where the student was enrolled in 2010-11 MSDS was used to look-up enrollment in 2010-11 for the student

11 11 Feeder Codes Feeder codes are used for PROFICIENCY –Participation is based on the school where the student tested –All full academic year students should have feeder codes Feeder codes used for school AYP, not for district AYP

12 12 AYP Targets MDE has set separate statewide AYP targets for each grade A Proficiency Index is used to combine the grade level proficiency data and grade level targets to make an AYP decision across the grades

13 13 Grade Level AYP Targets

14 14 Proficiency Index Reading

15 15 Group Size ALL schools are given an AYP status Group Size applies to subgroups – NOT to all students

16 16 Group Size Minimum Group Size – Across Grades Tested is 30 If total enrollment is more than 3,000 –1% Percent of Total Enrollment –District AYP –Maximum subgroup size is 200

17 17 AYP Reliability - Margin of Error –Measurement Error Would the student score the same if tested again? Standard Error of Measurement – Provisional Proficient Two times the standard error >= grade level cut score

18 18 Progress/Growth AYP proficient/provisional proficient classifies a student at a single point in time (status) Teachers often work students and make improvements in achievement Status models alone do not allow student improvement, which may be attributable to teacher intervention, to be tracked Growth Model gives credit in the AYP decision for growth from year-to-year by demonstrating that improvement in the student’s achievement is on a trajectory such that the student is expected to attain proficiency within the next three years.

19 19 MEAP Progress Value Table

20 20 “On Trajectory” Toward Proficiency

21 21 Growth Model Message Focus on “improvement” –Don’t work only with “bubble” students –Getting from 4-L to 3-L is enough improvement to be “on trajectory” The growth model provides modest adjustments

22 22 Safe Harbor An additional way to meet the AYP achievement target School/district must reduce the percent of FAY students not proficient by 10% of the prior year’s percent not proficient –A school that had 50% of its students as not proficient in 2010-11 would need to have 45% of its students not proficient in 2011-12 for Safe Harbor Only used after multi-year proficiency indices are calculated

23 23 Student Attendance Student attendance is taken from the End-of- Year MSDS submission of the prior school year Attendance is computed by summing the scheduled and actual days of attendance and then dividing the sum of the actual by the sum of scheduled

24 24 NCLB Graduation Rate NCLB requires that AYP include a graduation rate based on the percentage of students that –Receive a REGULAR high school diploma –In the STANDARD number of years AYP (including a graduation rate) is required for ALL schools

25 25 Graduation Rates for 2011-12 AYP The Graduation/Dropout Review and Comment Application from CEPI provides the graduation rates used for AYP for the class of 2011 The application was open in late summer of 2011 Appeals only through GAD

26 26 Five/Six Year Graduation Rates 2011 cohort (2007 9 th graders) four-year grad rate >= 79.5% 2010 cohort five-year grad rate >= 79.5% 2009 cohort six-year grad rate >= 79.5% Graduation rate “Safe Harbor” using four year cohort rates

27 27 AYP and Graduation Rate The AYP target graduation rate will remain at 80% 3-step improvement calculation: – 1.) calculate gap: 80 – previous 4-year rate – 2.) calculate improvement target: (gap x 0.25) + previous 4-year rate = improvement target – 3.) compare improvement target with current 4-year rate: current 4-year rate >= improvement target

28 28 MI-Access All students taking current MI-Access assessments are counted as tested Cap of 1% on MI-Access proficient scores Cap is district-wide –Some schools might exceed the cap

29 29 MEAP-Access 2% cap applies to “Modified Achievement Standards” –reflect reduced breadth or depth of grade- level content –Starts in 2011-12 States are NOT allowed to approve exceptions to the 2% cap
