1 2004 State Accountability System Overview Texas Education Agency Performance Reporting Division (512) and May 10, 2004

2 2004 State Accountability System2 Overall Design The overall design of the state accountability system is an improvement model Campuses and districts must meet either an absolute standard or an improvement standard for each accountability measure at the Academically Acceptable level

3 May 10, State Accountability System3 Rating Labels Campuses and districts are assigned the same rating labels: Exemplary Recognized Academically Acceptable Academically Unacceptable

4 May 10, State Accountability System4 State Accountability Indicators Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) Reading/English Language Arts (ELA) TAKS Writing TAKS Mathematics TAKS Social Studies TAKS Science State-Developed Alternative Assessment (SDAA) Completion Rate (grades 9-12) Annual Dropout Rate (grades 7-8)

5 May 10, State Accountability System5 Additional Requirements for Exemplary & Recognized Districts: cannot have any campuses rated Academically Unacceptable must meet underreported students standards (cannot have more than 500 or greater than 5% underreported students)

6 May 10, State Accountability System6 Alternative Education Campuses In 2004 only, campuses registered for alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures will receive a rating of Alternative Education Performance of AEA campuses is included in the district rating in 2004

7 May 10, State Accountability System7 Charters Charters will be rated under district rating criteria based on aggregated campus performance Charter campuses will be rated under campus rating criteria

8 Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)

9 May 10, State Accountability System9 TAKS Indicator The TAKS performance indicators are calculated as % Met Standard using the student passing standard adopted by the State Board of Education (SBOE) for each specific year - for 2004: 1 SEM for grades SEM for grade 11

10 May 10, State Accountability System10 TAKS Accountability Subsets District mobility: District ratings are based on test results for students enrolled in the district on the PEIMS fall as of date Campus mobility: Campus ratings are based on test results for students enrolled on the campus on the PEIMS fall as of date

11 May 10, State Accountability System11 TAKS Accountability Subsets (cont) For grade 3 Reading: results for students who change campuses between the 1 st and 2 nd administrations of the test are not included in the accountability subset for either campus (also applies at the district level) both passing and failing results are removed from the accountability subset

12 May 10, State Accountability System12 TAKS Subjects and Grades Reading, grades 3-9; ELA, grades (combined/evaluated as a single subject) Writing, grades 4 and 7 Mathematics, grades 3-11 Social Studies, grades 8, Science, grades 5, 10-11

13 May 10, State Accountability System13 TAKS Student Groups TAKS performance is evaluated for All Students and for the following student groups meeting minimum size requirements: African American Hispanic White Economically Disadvantaged

14 May 10, State Accountability System14 TAKS Minimum Size for Student Groups 30/10%/50 Student groups are evaluated if the campus or district has test results for at least 30 students in the group (summed across grades) for the subject and that represents at least 10% of all tests takers in that subject, or test results for at least 50 students in the group even if that represents less than 10% of all test takers in that subject

15 May 10, State Accountability System15 TAKS Small Numbers TAKS performance is always evaluated for All Students Campuses and districts with less than 30 total students tested on TAKS receive special analysis to determine if the initial rating assigned is an aberration or an indication of consistent performance

16 May 10, State Accountability System16 No Students in Grades Tested Districts are required to pair campuses with no students enrolled in grades tested on TAKS (grades 3-11): pair with another campus with a feeder relationship pair with the district when the campus has a feeder relationship with many campuses or when the campus serves students from across the district in a special program

17 May 10, State Accountability System17 TAKS Standard: Exemplary The TAKS standard for all subjects for an Exemplary campus and district rating is set at 90% beginning in 2004

18 May 10, State Accountability System18 TAKS Standard: Recognized The TAKS standard for all subjects for a Recognized campus and district rating is set at: 70% in 2004 through % in % in 2008 (where it is expected to remain)

19 May 10, State Accountability System19 TAKS Standards: Academically Acceptable 2004 through 2006: Reading/ELA, Writing, Social Studies: 50% Mathematics: 35% Science: 25% In 2007, the standards will begin to increase incrementally until they reach 70%

20 May 10, State Accountability System20 TAKS Required Improvement (RI) Campuses and districts not meeting the absolute standard for any TAKS subject (All Students or any student group) can meet the accountability criteria for that measure by demonstrating RI

21 May 10, State Accountability System21 TAKS RI (cont) RI applies to campuses and districts not meeting the absolute performance standard for: Academically Acceptable Recognized Campuses and districts must have at least 65% Met Standard in 2004 to be eligible for the RI option at the Recognized level

22 May 10, State Accountability System22 TAKS RI Standard For 2004 only, the RI standard is amount of gain in % Met Standard required to reach the accountability standard in 2 years

23 May 10, State Accountability System23 TAKS RI Calculation Amount of gain in % Met Standard at the current year passing standard - prior year results are recalculated at the current year student passing standard, 1 SEM to 1 SEM

24 May 10, State Accountability System24 TAKS RI Minimum Size TAKS RI will be calculated for any subject and student group the meets minimum size requirements in 2004 and has test results for at least 10 students in 2003

25 State-Developed Alternative Assessment (SDAA)

26 May 10, State Accountability System26 SDAA Indicator Average SDAA performance Calculated as the number of tests meeting admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee expectations (summed across grades and subjects) divided by the number of SDAA tests for which ARD expectations were established (summed across grades and subjects)

27 May 10, State Accountability System27 SDAA Subjects and Grades Reading, grades 3-8 Writing, grades 4 and 7 Mathematics, grades 3-8

28 May 10, State Accountability System28 SDAA Accountability Subsets and Student Groups District and campus mobility is applied SDAA performance is evaluated for All Students only

29 May 10, State Accountability System29 SDAA Minimum Size SDAA All Students performance will be evaluated for campuses and districts with results from 30 or more tests (summed across grades and subjects) The minimum size requirement of 30 tests can represent as few as 10 students.

30 May 10, State Accountability System SDAA Standards Exemplary: 90% Recognized: 70% Academically Acceptable: 50%

31 May 10, State Accountability System31 SDAA Required Improvement (RI) Campuses and districts not meeting the absolute standard for SDAA can meet the accountability criteria for the SDAA measure by demonstrating RI

32 May 10, State Accountability System32 SDAA RI (cont) RI applies to campuses and districts not meeting the absolute performance standard for: Academically Acceptable Recognized Campuses and districts must have at least 65% Met ARD Expectations to be eligible for the RI option at the Recognized level

33 May 10, State Accountability System33 SDAA RI Standard For 2004 only, the RI standard is amount of gain from 2003 in % Met ARD Expectations required to reach the accountability standard in 2 years

34 May 10, State Accountability System34 SDAA RI Minimum Size SDAA RI will be calculated for any campus and district with at least 30 SDAA test results in 2004 and at least 10 SDAA test results in 2003

35 May 10, State Accountability System35 SDAA in 2005 In 2005, SDAA II will be administered statewide for the first time. The SDAA accountability measure will be updated.

36 NCES Dropout Definition

37 May 10, State Accountability System37 Adopting the NCES Dropout Definition State statute requires Texas to adopt the NCES dropout definition for leavers Students leaving school to enter an alternative program to work toward a HS diploma or GED certificate are dropouts under the NCES definition

38 May 10, State Accountability System38 Using the NCES Dropout Definition The NCES definition will be used in the annual dropout rate calculation (2007 ratings) The NCES definition will be used in the completion rate calculation for the class of 2009 when 4 years of data are available (2010 ratings)

39 Completion Rate (Grades 9-12)

40 May 10, State Accountability System40 Completion Rate Indicator For 2004 and 2005, a high school completer is a student who graduates, receives a GED certificate, or returns to school for a fifth year (continuing student) The completion rate is high school completers as a percent of total students in the class (graduates + GED recipients + continuing students + dropouts)

41 May 10, State Accountability System41 Completion Rate Grades All campuses and districts that have served grades 9-12 for the last 5 years will be evaluated on completion rate Campuses that include any of the grades 9-12 but do not have a completion rate (have not served grades 9-12 for the last 5 years) are assigned the completion rate of the district

42 May 10, State Accountability System42 Completion Rate Student Groups If minimum size requirements are met, then completion rates are evaluated for: All Students African American Hispanic White Economically Disadvantaged

43 May 10, State Accountability System43 Completion Rate Minimum Size for All Students For 2004 only, completion rates are evaluated at the All Students level if there are at least 10 students in the class and at least 10 dropouts (non-completers)

44 May 10, State Accountability System44 Completion Rate Minimum Size for Student Groups For 2004 only, at least 10 dropouts (non- completers) and 30/10%/50 At least 30 students in the group and the group represents at least 10% of students in the class or at least 50 students in the group even if that represents less than 10% of all students in the class

45 May 10, State Accountability System45 Completion Rate Standards 2004 through 2006: Exemplary: 95% Recognized: 85% Academically Acceptable: 75% The Recognized standard is expected to increase to 90% and Academically Acceptable to 85%

46 May 10, State Accountability System46 Completion Rate Required Improvement (RI) Campuses and districts not meeting the Academically Acceptable absolute standard for completion rate (All Students or any student group) can meet the accountability criteria for that measure by demonstrating RI Development of a completion rate RI standard for the Recognized level will be considered for 2005

47 May 10, State Accountability System47 Completion Rate RI Standard: Academically Acceptable For 2004 only, the RI standard is amount of gain from the prior year required to meet a 75% completion rate in 2 years

48 May 10, State Accountability System48 Completion Rate RI Minimum Size Completion rate RI will be calculated for All Students and any student group that meets minimum size requirements for completion rate in 2004 and has at least 10 students in the completion rate class in 2003

49 Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8)

50 May 10, State Accountability System50 Annual Dropout Rate Indicator The annual dropout rate is grade 7 and 8 dropouts as a percent of total students in attendance at any time in grades 7 and 8 in a single school year

51 May 10, State Accountability System51 Annual Dropout Rate Grades All campuses and districts that have students in grade 7 and/or 8 will be evaluated on annual dropout rate

52 May 10, State Accountability System52 Annual Dropout Rate Student Groups If minimum size requirements are met, then annual dropout rates are evaluated for: All Students African American Hispanic White Economically Disadvantaged

53 May 10, State Accountability System53 Annual Dropout Rate Minimum Size for All Students For 2004 only, annual dropout rates are evaluated at the All Students level if there are at least 10 grade 7-8 dropouts and at least 10 grade 7-8 students

54 May 10, State Accountability System54 Annual Dropout Rate Minimum Size for Student Groups For 2004 only, at least 10 grade 7-8 dropouts and 30/10%/50 students At least 30 grade 7-8 students in the group and the group represents at least 10% of grade 7-8 students or at least 50 grade 7-8 students in the group even if that represents less than 10% of all grade 7-8 students

55 May 10, State Accountability System55 Annual Dropout Rate Standards Exemplary: 0.2% in Recognized: 0.7% in Academically Acceptable: 2.0% in 2004 (1.0% in 2005 and 2006) Annual dropout rate standards for 2007 and beyond will be determined when campus data are available to set the standards on a dropout rate calculated under the NCES definition

56 May 10, State Accountability System56 Annual Dropout Rate Required Improvement (RI) Campuses and districts not meeting the Academically Acceptable absolute standard for annual dropout rate (All Students or any student group) can meet the accountability criteria for that measure by demonstrating RI Development of an annual dropout rate RI standard for the Recognized level will be considered for 2005

57 May 10, State Accountability System57 Annual Dropout Rate RI Standard: Academically Acceptable For 2004 only, the RI standard is amount of decline from the prior year required to meet a 2.0% annual dropout rate in 2 years

58 May 10, State Accountability System58 Annual Dropout Rate RI Minimum Size Annual dropout rate RI is calculated for All Students and any student group that meets minimum size requirements for annual dropout rate in 2004 and has at least 10 grade 7-8 students in 2003

59 Exceptions Provision

60 May 10, State Accountability System60 Exceptions Provision for Assessment Measures Only An automatic exceptions provision is applied to the 26 assessment measures [25 TAKS (5 subjects x 5 student groups) and 1 SDAA (All Students only)]

61 May 10, State Accountability System61 Exceptions Provision for Academically Unacceptable Only The exceptions provision only helps those campuses and districts that would otherwise be rated Academically Unacceptable A campus or district can move up one rating level only when the exceptions provision is applied

62 May 10, State Accountability System62 Exceptions Provision for Academically Unacceptable Only (cont) If a campus of district is rated Academically Unacceptable solely due to not meeting the Academically Acceptable criteria (absolute performance and improvement standard) on 1 to 3 assessment measures, then an exception to those measures will be applied if all other conditions are met

63 May 10, State Accountability System63 Exceptions Provision Performance Floor Performance on the measure(s) to which the exceptions provision applies must be no more than 5 percentage points below the accountability standard for the Academically Acceptable level

64 May 10, State Accountability System64 Exceptions Provision One-Time Use An exception will not be granted for the same measure for 2 consecutive years

65 May 10, State Accountability System65 Maximum Exceptions Allowed The number of exceptions granted depends on the number of assessment measures on which the campus or district is evaluated

66 May 10, State Accountability System66 Maximum Exceptions Allowed (cont) Assessment Measures Evaluated 1 – 5 6 – – or more Maximum Exceptions Allowed

67 May 10, State Accountability System67 Exceptions Provision Annual Review The exceptions provision will be reevaluated every year to determine if measures should be added or removed, if adjustments need to be made to the number of exceptions allowed, or other provisions need modification
