Title 4 . Education and Early Development
Chapter 6 . (Repealed)
Section 810. Performance and improvement

4 AAC 06.810. Performance and improvement

(a) The academic performance score for proficiency in mathematics or language arts is a fraction, expressed as a percent, the numerator of which is the number of students enrolled for a full academic year who were proficient in mathematics or language arts and the denominator of which is the number of students enrolled for a full academic year who participated in a state assessment.

(b) A school, a district, or the state public school system satisfies the requirements for student academic performance in mathematics or language arts if the students collectively and each subgroup of students in the school, district, or state public school system achieve a performance score that meets or exceeds the lower bound of the 99 percent confidence interval around the annual measurable objective for that school year and subject specified in 4 AAC 06.815.

(c) The lower bound of the confidence interval described in (b) of this section is calculated under the following formula:

where:

p = the proportion required to be proficient or higher under the AMO for that school year and subject;

q = the proportion not required to be proficient or higher under the AMO for that school year and subject;

N = the number of students in the school or subgroup who participated in a state assessment and were enrolled for the full academic year;

AMO = the annual measurable objective for that school year and subject specified in 4 AAC 06.815.

(d) A subgroup, school, or district that does not meet the requirements for academic performance in a subject area under (b) of this section satisfies the requirements for improvement of academic performance in that subject area if the

(1) lower bound of the 75 percent confidence interval around the number that represents the percentage of students in the subgroup, school, or district that are not proficient or higher in the subject area for that year is 10 percent lower than the percentage that were not proficient or higher in that subject area the preceding year; and

(2) subgroup, school, or district meets or makes progress on the other academic indicators described in 4 AAC 06.825.

(e) In calculating the performance score under (a) of this section, a school, a district, and the state public school system may include as proficient students who test at the proficient level on the alternate assessment, for those grades in which the alternate assessment is available under 4 AAC 06.775(b) . However, no more than one percent of the students in the district or the state public school system may be included as proficient under the alternate assessment.
