Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness Index 4 is : the Post-secondary Readiness index, which is used to show the readiness of students on campus (or in a district) to enter the workforce or college the Post-secondary Readiness index, which is used to show the readiness of students on campus (or in a district) to enter the workforce or college it has up to four indicators it has up to four indicators
Index 4 Visual STAAR Final Level II Standard on at lest 2 tests taken. STAAR Final Level II Standard on at lest 2 tests taken. Graduation Rates Graduation Rates Graduation Plans (Recommended/Distinguished) Graduation Plans (Recommended/Distinguished) Post Secondary Readiness Indicators (HS graduates who met college-ready criteria on the TAKS, or SAT test, or the ACT test in both ELA and mathematics). Post Secondary Readiness Indicators (HS graduates who met college-ready criteria on the TAKS, or SAT test, or the ACT test in both ELA and mathematics).
Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness All campuses and districts are evaluated on the STAAR Final Level II Standard indicator. For Elementary and Middle School campuses (and campuses/districts which don’t have graduation rates) this indicator is the only indicator used for the index score. For 2013-2014 school year (last year), elementary campuses were required to have an Index Score of 12, middle schools, and district without graduation rates 13, and high schools without graduation rates 21 to meet the index standard.
Index 4 Visual The STAAR indicator consists of all students and all races/ethnicity groups, so students will count at most twice in this indicator (a White student can count in all students and white group).
Index 4 Visual Special Ed and ELL are not included as an individual subgroup, but the students ARE included in the ALL Students and appropriate race/ethnicity group.
Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness Phase-in standards, it is all about how students will be evaluated each year on the STAAR test. The accountability system uses the different phase-in standards in different ways in the various indexes.
Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness For Index 4, campuses and districts are being evaluated for post-secondary readiness-and not students meeting a low standard, the “passing” standard for Index 4 is the Final Phase-In Standard. Students are not help to that standard until 2021-2022 school year, yet campuses and districts have been evaluated using the Final Phase-In Standard in Index 4 since 2012. Students can meet standard on the tests, but be considered a “failure” in Index 4 because he/she did not meet the Final Phase-In Standard.
Elementary and middle schools are evaluated only on the STAAR indicator High school and districts are evaluated on these three additional areas – Graduation Rate, Graduation Plan, and Postsecondary Indicator
Index 4 Visual For campuses/districts with all 4 indicators, each indicator is weighted evenly (25% each) to determine the Index Score.
Index 4 Visual Graduation Rates: are determined based on the best rated for either a 4-year or 5-year graduation rate. The Index considers the All Student group, the 7 race/ethnicity groups, AND special education and ELL. Students may count as many as 4 times in the graduation rate calculation (All, Race/Eth, SpEd, ELL)
Index 4 Visual Graduation Plans: This indicator uses the percentage of students who graduate with a recommended or distinguished diploma. The state has an expectation that all students graduate with at least the recommended diploma. Campuses who allow student to move from the recommended to minimum plan, may find themselves not meeting the Index standard based on this indicator alone. This indicator is expected to change after this year, as the graduation plans change and the last class graduating under TAKS.
Index 4 Visual Postsecondary Indicator: this indicator identifies the percentage of student who met the post-secondary readiness standard on TAKS, SAT, or ACT for both Reading and Math. With the STAAR indicator, only the All Students and Race/Ethnicity groups will be counted to determine the index score.
Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness These indicators are not things we, as an ESC, have a direct impact. Much of what we do might be considered secondary influence on these indicators.
Index 4 Description: Postsecondary Readiness How can we impact these changes on the campuses and in the districts? How do these index ideas drive what we need to do?
