Annual Measurable Objectives are the second of two accountability systems used by public schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia[1]. The state-level system is Accreditation.

Granted a waiver from No Child Left Behind, Virginia established Annual Measurable Objectives to comply with federal accountability measures to reduce proficiency gaps between students in reading and math[2].

To do this, AMO divides the student population into 9 subgroups based on race, socioeconomic, and language and disability status. Each subgroup is assigned a benchmark pass rate that increases each year, and which all subgroups must meet in order for a school to meet AMO.

This plan’s goal is to ensure that, by 2018, all subgroups are posting pass rates of 73 on math tests and 78 on reading tests.
