Empirical Method for Setting Proposed Revised AMAO 1 Targets and Annual Growth Increments (Cont.)

  1. Rank order districts with 30 or more ELLs from low to high on percentage of students making AMAO 1.

  2. Select the 25th percentile LEA performance on AMAO 1 measure as the starting target for 2006-07, and the 65th percentile district performance as the ending point for 2016-17.

  3. Set annual growth increments as the equal interval between the starting and ending targets.
