Empirical Method for Setting Proposed Revised
AMAO 2 Targets and Annual Growth Increments

  1. The same empirical method used to revise the AMAO 1 targets and annual increments was used to revise the AMAO 2 targets.

  2. Designate individual ELLs as meeting AMAO 2 if they scored at the proficient level (Level 4) on both the L/S and RW components of the 2007 NYSESLAT.

  3. Calculate the percentage of students making AMAO 2 in each district by dividing the number of ELLs who made AMAO 2 by the total number of identified ELLs in the district in the current school year.
