Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is the term used in No Child Left Behind to refer to the minimum improvement required of each school and district over the course of one year. It is measured at the school and district levels by:

  • measuring growth in the percentage of students scoring proficient or above in reading and mathematics
  • assessing improvement on the "other academic indicator"
  • testing at least 95% of enrolled students and student subpopulations of sufficient size[1]
