2006-2007 SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT ALBUQUERQUE PUBLIC SCHOOLS RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY DEPARTMENT
2006-2007 Summary 46 of 128 APS schools made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) 1 High school 1 Middle School 41 Elementary Schools 3 Alternative Schools 12 schools met AYP after not meeting AYP last year
Accountability Ratings What is Adequate Yearly Progress? (AYP) How is AYP calculated? What is ‘Safe Harbor’? What is included in the determination of meeting AYP? What is an Annual Measurable Objective (AMO) or AYP Goal?
What is used to determine accountability ratings for 2006-07? Percent of students proficient 3 rd -9 th & 11 th grades (and who were enrolled for a full academic year [FAY]) - SBA Language Arts [English and Spanish except 11 th ] -SBA Math [English & Spanish except 11 th grade] - Alternate Assessment for Students with Disabilities 95% Participation rate for all tests, each group 92% Attendance for elem. and mid schools 90% Graduation Rate for high schools
How do I calculate percent proficient? Based on Full Academic Year (FAY) SBA Language Arts + Spanish Language Arts + Alternate Assessment Divided by Number of FAY Students tested Repeat this process for each disaggregated group at each school and for each content area
How are the results used to determine AYP? The percent proficient in each group at your school is compared to the Annual Measurable Objective (AMO) for Reading and Math. The AMO is set by the Public Education Dept. for each content area and increases annually. The AMO is the goal that every disaggregated group must achieve in order to meet AYP.
What are Disaggregated Groups? All students at the school in tested grades Students in each ethnic group -Caucasian -Asian -African American -American Indian -Hispanic Students with Disabilities (SWD) Students Economically Disadvantaged (FRPM) Students who are English Language Learners (ELL)
What if a student is in several groups? Students are counted in every group of which they are a member. Every student counts in “ALL”. Every student counts in an “Ethnic” group. Then, the student counts in any of the other three groups that apply. One student could be counted five times.
Group Size Thresholds Only those groups with 25 or more students are required to meet the Academic AMO. Only those groups with 40 or more students are required to meet Participation target of 95%. Every group of ten or more is reported so that you may make data-driven instructional decisions for all students.
Is the AMO the same for Reading and Math? No. Starting points were set for each content area for grade groupings on the 2003 test and increase each year to 100% by 2014. Mid School example: 2004-05 Reading AMO = 34.14 Math AMO = 10.58 2005-06 Reading AMO = 38.00 Math AMO = 15.00 2006-07 Reading AMO = 42.00 Math AMO = 20.00 200708 Reading AMO = 53.00 Math AMO = 35.00
Is the AMO the same for all schools? Yes. The AMO is the same for all schools of similar configurations (e.g. K-5, 6-8, 9-12). The AMO is adjusted based on the number of students tested in the group. This is the confidence interval. The larger the group of students tested, the closer the goal will be set to the AMO. The smaller the group of students tested, the larger the adjustment made to the AMO.
Why is there an adjustment? The adjustment is calculated to increase the confidence in the rating that is assigned to the school. The confidence interval is similar to the plus or minus reported with survey data (e.g. 33% said yes with a margin of + - 3%). Confidence intervals increase the likelihood that the rating is accurate.
What does this Confidence Interval look like? Confidence Interval For 115 students (SAMPLE) AMO
What does ‘Safe Harbor’ mean? Safe Harbor analysis may be used to determine if a subgroup has made substantial improvement, despite not having met the AMO. If a school or a subgroup demonstrates a 10% reduction in the percentage of non proficient students, and all other indicators are met then AYP criteria are considered as being met for that group. For the 2006-07 school year, one APS school made AYP based on ‘Safe Harbor’
How do I find my AYP status? The PED website has a listing of all New Mexico schools and their AYP designation at ped.state.nm.us Individual School Reports are also available at the PED website. APS Research, Development and Accountability has the AYP Reports on the RDA site at rda.aps.edu
Individual School Reports Each section of the School Accountability Report holds important information. Directions for reading each section follow this slide. The Accountability Report informs NCLB, not your instructional program.
