Under the accountability provisions in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001(NCLB), all districts, campuses, and the state are evaluated for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). Districts, campuses, and the state are evaluated on three indicators for AYP: Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, and one other indicator. For Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics (Grades 3–8 and 10, summed across grades), for all students and each student group (African American, Hispanic, White, Economically Disadvantaged, Special Education, Limited English Proficient) that meets minimum size requirements, districts and campuses must meet the performance standard or performance improvement/safe harbor, and the participation standard. The performance standard is based on test results for students enrolled for the full academic year. The participation standard is based on participation in the assessment program of all students enrolled on the day of testing.
In addition to Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics, districts and campuses are required to meet the AYP standard on one other indicator—either Graduation Rate or Attendance Rate. The other indicator evaluated for a district or campus is based on the grades offered.
