1 1 Accountability System Overview of the Accountability Rating System for Texas Public Schools and Districts

2 2  Statutory Requirements of House Bill 3 (2009) ◦ Focus on Postsecondary Readiness ◦ Inclusion of Student Progress ◦ Emphasis on Closing Achievement Gaps  New STAAR program with EOC-based assessments for middle schools and high schools  Lessons learned from previous state accountability rating systems  Successful models used by other states, e.g. CA, CO, FL, GA, KY, LA, OH, OK, NC, SC Framework Development Process Accountability System

3 Student Achievement Index I Student Progress Index 2 Closing Performance Gaps Index 3 Postsecondary Readiness Index 4 Overview of Proposed Performance Index Framework 3

4 4  All Students Only (Accountability Subset)  Combined over All Subject Areas  Credit given for Satisfactory performance level (Level II) phase-in on: ◦ STAAR English (Grades 3-8) and Spanish (Grades 3-5) administered in the spring; first retest included. ◦ EOC assessments administered in the spring and the previous fall and summer.  Credit given for Satisfactory performance level (Level II) phase-in on: ◦ STAAR Grades 3-8 and EOC Modified and Alternate; ◦ STAAR L (linguistically accommodated) are included based on the ATAC ELL Workgroup recommendations; ◦ TAKS included in 2013 only: Grade 11 results at Met Standard performance standard. Student Achievement Index I

5 5  ELL Exclusions:  2013: ◦ Students in U.S. schools Year 1 through Year 3 excluded ◦ Students in U.S. schools Year 4 and beyond included at phase-in Level II standard ◦ Exceptions: asylees/refugees in U.S. schools Year 1 through Year 5 excluded; immigrants entering at Grade 9 or above excluded Student Achievement Index I

6 6  ELL Exclusions:  Proposed 2014 and beyond: ◦ Students in U.S. schools Year 1 excluded ◦ Students in U.S. schools Year 2 through Year 4 included based on test version:  English test version using STAAR ELL Progress Measure;  Spanish test version using phase-in Level II performance standard  Students in U.S. schools Year 5 and beyond included at phase-in Level II performance standard ◦ Exceptions: asylees/refugees in U.S. schools Year 1 through Year 5 excluded; immigrants entering at Grade 9 or above excluded Student Achievement Index I

8 8  Ten Student Groups Evaluated: ◦ All Students ◦ Race/Ethnicity: African American, American Indian, Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, White Two or More Races ◦ Students with Disabilities (SWD) ◦ English Language Learners (ELLs)  By Subject Area (Reading, Mathematics, and Writing) Student Progress Index 2

9 9  Same assessments used in Index 1 where student progress measures are available based on scale score in relation to growth expectations (Did Not Meet, Met, and Exceeded)  Credit based on weighted performance: ◦ One point given for each percentage of students at the Met growth expectations level ◦ Two points given for each percentage of students at the Exceeded growth expectations level Student Progress Index 2

25 25  Performance Rates ◦ 50% for all student groups in all subjects  Participation Rates ◦ 95% for all student groups in Reading and Mathematics  Federal Graduation Rates ◦ 4 year: 78% for all student groups ◦ 5 year: 83% for all student groups  Limits on Use of Alternative Assessments ◦ Modified = 2%; Alternate = 1% (Reading and Mathematics) Safeguard Measures and Targets Accountability System

26 26  HB 5 will not affect the ratings assigned this year on August 8 th.  The number of EOC assessments required for graduation will affect the state rating system beginning with the school year.  HB 5 requires ratings of A-F for districts and ratings of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, and unacceptable to campuses in How will HB 5 Affect the Accountability System?
