|School Progress data on mdreportcard.org|
Maryland has a new accountability system that replaces the former AYP status model and takes into account additional indicators of progress which are called core values. Growth, gap reduction, and college readiness in addition to achievement give a more accurate picture of a school’s performance and progress then the former set of AYP achievement indicators. In the new system, these core values provide a School Performance Index (SPI) which is used to identify schools that need support and deserve recognition.
The former AYP Status table which identified whether all students and the ten subgroups met or did not meet the AMOs will continue to be reported and to serve as important data for schools to improve student achievement. However, with the new accountability program, AYP status will no longer be used for accountability.
Student progress in reading and math is measured by the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) or—for a small number of students with profound disabilities—the Alternate MSA (ALT-MSA). The AMOs used to identify whether all students and the ten subgroups met the target have been changed to reflect new baseline data (in 2011) and a new target year (2017).
