2 2 State Accountability

3 3 Standard Accountability Decisions for 2008

4 4 Factors Affecting 2008 Accountability Increased Rigor of 2008 Accountability Addition of grade 8 science assessment at Panel Recommended standard Addition of TAKS (Accommodated) in science and social studies (all grades) and grade 11 (all subjects) Removal of the School Leaver Provision from the completion/dropout/underreported indicators Continued impact of the phase-in of the NCES dropout definition through 2010

5 5 Factors Affecting 2008 Accountability (continued) Increased Rigor of 2008 Accountability (continued) Impact of Panel Recommended exit level TAKS passing standards on the completion rate for the Class of 2007 Increased number of student groups evaluated due to inclusion of TAKS-Accommodated Increased number of student groups evaluated on middle school campuses due to grade 8 science The TAKS standards for Academically Acceptable increase for reading/ELA, mathematics, and science by five points each.

7 7 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision What Has Changed for 2008 Campuses and districts may now use the provision to achieve a Recognized or an Exemplary rating. Districts and campuses will be eligible to receive four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Academically Acceptable rating or four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Recognized rating. The minimum performance floor values are altered for mathematics and science for the Academically Acceptable rating.

8 8 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) What Remains Unchanged The Exceptions Provision will continue to be applied to only the 25 TAKS measures (5 subjects multiplied by 5 groups: All Students, African American, Hispanic, White, and Economically Disadvantaged). The Exceptions Provision will not be applicable to either Completion Rate I or Annual Dropout Rate indicators. The Exception Provision cannot elevate a rating more than one rating category. An exception cannot be used for the same measure for two consecutive years.

9 9 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Academically Acceptable or Recognized: The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor to be eligible to use this provision. The floors vary by subject and rating category, as shown in the following table.

10 10 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Minimum Performance Floors Academically AcceptableRecognized Mathematics and Science No more than 10 percentage points below standards All Subjects No more than 5 percentage points below standard Reading/ELA, Writing, and Social Studies No more than 5 percentage points below standards

11 11 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Academically Acceptable or Recognized: The ranges for the number of measures evaluated in order to earn an exception are changed from the ranges used previously, as shown in the following table.

12 12 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) 2007 Exceptions Provision Table (for Academically Acceptable only) 2008 and Beyond Exceptions Provision Table (for Academically Acceptable or Recognized) Number of Assessment Measures Evaluated Maximum Number of Exceptions Allowed Number of Assessment Measures Evaluated Maximum Number of Exceptions Allowed 1 – 50 exceptions1 – 40 exceptions 6 – 101 exception5 – 81 exception 11 – 152 exceptions9 – 112 exceptions 16 or more3 exceptions12 – 153 exceptions n/a 16 or more4 exceptions

13 13 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Exemplary: Districts and campuses will be eligible to receive one possible exception in order to achieve the Exemplary rating. A minimum of 10 assessment measures must be evaluated in order to be eligible to use the one exception. The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor that is 5 points below the Exemplary standard. Because the Exemplary standard is 90% for all subjects for 2008 and beyond, the floor is 85%.

14 14 TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) 2008 and Beyond Exceptions Provision Table (for Exemplary) Number of Assessment Measures Evaluated Maximum Number of Exceptions Allowed 1 – 90 exceptions 10 or more1 exception

15 15 Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8) Indicator A single standard will be used for all rating categories (Previously Published) 2008 (Final Decision) Academically Acceptable=< 1.0%=< 2.0% Recognized=< 0.7%=< 2.0% Exemplary=< 0.2%=< 2.0% Dropout DefinitionNCES Definition Standards Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year

16 16 Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8) Indicator (continued) In 2008 Required Improvement (RI) will be calculated because the dropout definition for and are the same. The same RI calculation is applied to all rating categories. Required Improvement School Leaver Provision The School Leaver Provision will not be applied in 2008 and beyond.

17 17 Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator Standards are unchanged from 2007 and are scheduled to remain constant through Indicator will include two years under the NCES dropout definition. Standards 2008 Academically Acceptable 75.0% Recognized 85.0% Exemplary 95.0% Completion Rate I Definition of a Completer Graduates + Continued HS Dropout Definition (used in denominator)Phase-in NCES Definition

18 18 Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator (continued) The floor needed to be eligible to use RI to achieve the Recognized rating is changed to be the Academically Acceptable standard. This would decrease the floor value from 80.0% to 75.0%. Required Improvement School Leaver Provision The School Leaver Provision will not be applied in 2008 and beyond.

23 23 TAKS Student Growth Measure A method for measuring annual student improvement on the TAKS tests will be selected during the fall of Student growth reporting for individual students is scheduled to begin with the school year. Student growth will be used in the state accountability system as soon as possible, which could be as early as the 2009 accountability cycle.

24 24 TAKS Student Growth Measure (continued) The 2009 advisory groups will recommend the method for incorporating growth and will review 2009 TAKS standards in relation to the growth decisions. If student growth is incorporated beginning in 2009, other components of the system such as Required Improvement, Comparable Improvement, and the Exceptions Provision will also be subject to review during the 2009 development cycle.

25 25 Vertical Scale To meet new statutory requirements, a vertical scale will be implemented in grades 3-8 for TAKS mathematics and reading starting with the school year. A vertical scale is a scale score system that allows comparison of student test scores across grade levels within a subject. With vertical scaling, scores that measure content in the same subject but at different grade levels are placed onto a common scale.

26 26 Vertical Scale (continued) One implication a vertical scale has for TAKS is that a review of current student passing standards may need to be considered. Should changes to the TAKS student passing standards occur, a reconsideration of accountability standards for the affected subject(s) will be necessary.

Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year.

30 30 English Language Learner (ELL) Indicator For state accountability purposes, progress on the ELL measure will be based on comparisons of two years of Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) Reading results, instead of comparisons between the new TELPAS Reading and the former Reading Proficiency Tests in English (RPTE) tests. Two years of TELPAS Reading data are needed in order to calculate progress and set standards. Two years will not be available for advisory group review until the 2010 development cycle. Based on these timelines, the first use of this ELL Measure in state accountability will be 2011.

31 31 Alternative Education Accountability (AEA) Decisions for 2008 and Beyond

32 32 AEA Indicator Standards AEA Indicator TAKS Progress45%50% Annual Dropout Rate10.0% TBD Completion Rate II70.0% TBD AEA Standards for 2008 and Beyond Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year.

33 33 TAKS Progress Indicator Beginning in 2008, grade 8 science results are included. Beginning in 2008, TAKS (Accommodated) results are phased in as shown on slide 22. For 2008 accountability, prior-year (2007) assessment results will be recalculated to include both grade 8 science and TAKS (Accommodated) results. This will make 2007 and 2008 performance comparable and enable the use of Required Improvement in 2008.

34 34 Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-12) Indicator Beginning in 2008, Minimum Size Requirements increase to 10 dropouts. Beginning in 2008, only the All Students group is evaluated. Student groups are not evaluated separately. Beginning in 2008, AECs that do not meet the Annual Dropout Rate standard or demonstrate Required Improvement are evaluated for Annual Dropout Rate using data of at-risk students in the district. Annual Dropout Rate Required Improvement is calculated in 2008.

35 35 Annual Dropout Rate School Leaver Provision For 2008 and 2009, the School Leaver Provision will apply only to the AEA Annual Dropout Rate indicator. If the Annual Dropout Rate is the only indicator causing an AEA: Academically Unacceptable rating, then the AEC or charter is assigned the AEA: Academically Acceptable label.

36 36 Completion Rate II (Grades 9-12) Indicator Beginning in 2008, Minimum Size Requirements increase to 10 dropouts. Beginning in 2008, only the All Students group is evaluated. Student groups are not evaluated separately.

37 37 AEA Gold Performance Acknowledgments (AEA GPA) Beginning in 2008, a series of AEA GPA indicators will be awarded to AEA campuses and charters. Only the All Students group will be evaluated. The three acknowledgment categories used under the current GPA system will be applied to AEA GPA: Acknowledged, Does Not Qualify, and Not Applicable. For each campus and charter rated AEA: Academically Acceptable, one of the acknowledgment categories will be reported for each AEA GPA indicator in late October following resolution of all appeals when the final ratings are released.

40 At-Risk Registration Criterion and Charters Evaluated under AEA Procedures

41 At-Risk Registration Criterion Each registered AEC must have at least 75% at-risk student enrollment verified through PEIMS fall enrollment data in order to be evaluated under 2008 AEA procedures and receive an AEA rating on August 1, Two safeguards have been incorporated for those AECs that are below the at-risk requirement. 1. Prior-Year PEIMS At-Risk Data Safeguard: If a registered AEC does not meet the at-risk criterion in 2008, then it remains under AEA if the AEC had at least 75% at-risk enrollment in New Campus Safeguard: If a new campus is registered for evaluation under AEA procedures, then the AEC is not required to meet the at-risk criterion in its first year of operation. This safeguard provides an accommodation for new campuses with no prior-year data.

42 At-Risk Registration Criterion (continued) In April, letters will be mailed to the AECs that do not meet the 2008 at-risk registration criterion informing them that AEA registration is rescinded and that the AEC will be evaluated under 2008 standard accountability procedures. The Final 2008 Registered AEC list will be posted on the AEA website in May. This list will contain the AECs that will receive a 2008 AEA rating.

43 43 Charters Evaluated under AEA Procedures A list of the charter operators that will be rated under 2008 AEA procedures will be posted on the AEA website in May. Charters that operate only standard campuses are evaluated automatically under standard accountability procedures. Charters that operate only registered AECs are evaluated automatically under AEA procedures.

44 44 Charters evaluated under AEA Procedures (continued) Charters that operate both standard campuses and registered AECs have the option to be evaluated under AEA procedures if at least 50% of the charters students are enrolled at registered AECs. TEA contacts the charter to obtain its preference. Charters submit preference via TEASE Accountability website. If a preference cannot be obtained, then the charter is evaluated under standard accountability procedures. If fewer than 50% of the charters students are enrolled at registered AECs, then the charter is evaluated under standard accountability procedures.
