Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives
AMAOs are achievement objectives for English learners that corporations
must meet that receive Title III funds. The AMAOs are split into three
sections and each section must be met for the corporations to meet the
annual AMAOs. The AMAOS are based on LAS Links and ISTEP.
Part 1 – Making Progress
Percent of Limited English Proficient K-12
whose performance increased 12 or more
scale points from their most recent prior
test to the Spring 2011 LAS Links.
State Target – 47%
State Performance – 64%
MSDWT – 74%
Did MSDWT make this AMAO? Yes.
Part 2 - Attainment
Percent of LEP students who attained a Level 1-4 of
English language proficiency on a prior LAS Links
test and increased to an overall/composite Level 5,
Fluent English Proficient, and at least a Level 4 in
each language domain (listening, speaking,
reading, and writing) in Spring 2011 LAS Links.
State Target – 12%
State Performance – 13%
MSDWT Performance – 8%
Did MSDWT make this AMAO? No.
Part 3 – Adequate Yearly Progress
School corporations receive an affirmative Spring
2011 AYP determination based on meeting the
States 2011 performance and participation
targets for both ELA and Math.
Did MSDWT meet AYP for the LEP subgroup? Yes.
Did MSDWT make this AMAO? Yes.

2010-2011 school year because it did
not have enough of levels 1-4 moving
