What does that mean for my
school?
 Students are NEVER penalized for division
failures. The students earned score is
reported accurately for that student!
 The VMAST test scores that exceed the 2%
cap WILL BE REASSIGNED AS FAILURES TO
THE SCHOOL’S AYP RATES only.
 It is a HCPS Central Office determination of
score assignment for tests exceeding the cap.
 Accreditation is a STATE calculation and VDOE
does not utilize the 2% federal cap, thus all
passing scores ARE counted in accreditation.
