Testing and Accountability

Background

Academic Performance Index (API) scores are calculated by the state and measure student performance on standardized tests administered in the spring. Each school in the state, as well as districts, receive an API score between 200 and 1,000. The goal for all schools and districts is to have a score above 800.

 

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is calculated by the federal government under the No Child Left Behind Legislation of 2001. AYP measures whether schools and districts meet specific benchmarks for performance by students in significant demographic subgroups (i.e., English Language Learners, Special Education students, socioeconomically disadvantaged student). A school either makes AYP or it does not. If a school or district receives Title I federal funding and does not make AYP for two years straight, it enters “Program Improvement” status and must take a series of corrective measures to improve student achievement. A school or district must make AYP two years in a row in order to exit Program Improvement status.
