Annual Measurable Objectives
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.
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.
