Empirical Method for Setting Proposed Revised
AMAO 2 Targets and Annual Growth Increments (Cont.)

  1. Rank the order of all districts with 30 or more LEP/ELLs from low to high on percentage of LEP/ELLs making AMAO 2.

  2. Select the 25th percentile of LEA’s performance on the AMAO 2 measure as the starting point for 2006-07 school year, and the 65th percentile as the ending target for the 2016-17.

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