Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs)

Reporting under Flexibility Waiver

For a summary of Colorado’s NCLB Flexibility Waiver application, go to Colorado NCLB Waiver.

For a direct comparison between AYP and Title I accountability under the flexibility waiver, go to page 8 of the NCLB 2011-12 Report Card at Colorado NCLB Report Card 2011-12 (PDF).

The effectiveness of Colorado’s recognition, accountability and support system depends in large part on ambitious and attainable Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs). Colorado’s AMOs are ambitious, to ensure that the system reflects our highest aspirations for getting all students college‐ and career‐ready, yet they also are attainable, to be meaningful and useful goals that guide improvement efforts.

The 2012-13 Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for percentages Proficient and Advanced (TCAP) and Developing and Novice (CoAlt) follow, and represent pre-determined incremental increases from the 2011-12 targets, per Colorado's NCLB Flexibility Waiver application. 2011-12 AMO targets were based on 2009-10 academic proficiency rates of the 50th percentile schools/districts. Targets were set for reading, math, writing and science at the elementary, middle and high levels, separately for schools and districts. AMO targets began at these 50th percentiles in 2011-12 and were slated to rise incrementally to 2010's 90th percentiles for 2015-16. There are no 2013-14 science targets, as this was the first year that the new CMAS Science test was given, and AMO targets have not yet been established for this new test. Colorado will re-visit these AMOs after the new PARCC assessment system is implemented in 2014-15.
