These criteria would apply to reviews for reading, mathematics, science, and social studies. The criteria for language arts will be one year behind due to changes in the way language arts will be considered for accountability purposes beginning with the results of 1998-99 testing. The 90% rule for language arts will be based on 1998-99 test results.

Beginning with test results for school year 2001-02, the use of the 90% rule would be discontinued in all subject areas. The CPI would be fully implemented; the previous four years of data would be used for annual review purposes.

Note that only scores of students enrolled for the full academic year prior to testing are considered. With February testing this means three semesters or more at the same school.

As has been true beginning with 1996-97 test results, schools would not be identified for improvement in a subject unless the School's Achievement Level or CPI indicated in the above Table is below the required level for two consecutive years.
