Adequate Yearly Progress
Adequate yearly progress (AYP) sets a standard for accountability, which measures states, schools and districts by the results of state-level tests in 2 main content areas — math and reading. AYP uses this assessment data to measure the academic performance of all students, including subgroups such as children whose families qualify as low-income. The goal — all students reach 100% proficiency math and reading, beginning in 2014.
