1 Federal Accountability AYP Update Accountability TETN February 18, 2010 Shannon Housson and Ester Regalado TEA, Performance Reporting Division

2 2 AYP Topics Preview of 2010 AYP: – Use of Texas Projection Measure (TPM) in AYP – Federal Cap Process – Texas AYP Workbook Amendments Texas NCLB Report Card Resources

3 AYP Preview 2010 AYP Performance Standards increase to: 73% in Reading/English language arts 67% in Mathematics Participation Rate and Attendance Rate indicator standards remain unchanged.

4 AYP Preview Possible changes to the Graduation rate standard. TPM will continue to be used. Federal Cap on TAKS-M and TAKS-Alt will include students that meet the standard and those projected or on track to meet the standard based on growth.

7 TPM was used for the first time in 2009 AYP evaluations. TPM allowed 10% (126) of districts to Meet AYP that would have otherwise missed AYP; and 6% (528) of campuses. TPM will continue to be used in the same manner as in Preview: Use of Texas Projection Measure (TPM) in AYP

8 Preview: Use of TPM in AYP Three options for meeting the AYP Performance Standard: 1.AYP Proficiency Rate (without Growth) 2.Performance Improvement/Safe Harbor (without Growth) 3.AYP Performance Rate with Growth. AYP Performance Rate with Growth: (Students who Met the Passing Standard + Students predicted to meet the Standard) Total Number of Students Tested 2010 Preview: Use of TPM in AYP (cont.)

9 9 Available in Spring 2010 TAKS–Modified (TAKS- M) TPM projections will be reported for TAKS–M results in school year for grades 4, 7, and 10. TAKS-Alternate (TAKS-Alt) The TAKS-Alt Growth Measure will be reported for all grades and will identify students on track to meet the TAKS-Alt standard.

10 10 The Federal Cap process will include student results that – meet the standard on TAKS-M or TAKS-Alt, – are projected to meet the TAKS-M standard based on TPM, – are on track to meet the TAKS-Alt standard based on the TAKS-Alt Growth Measure Preview: Use of TPM in AYP (cont.)

11 Preview: AYP Federal Caps The 2010 AYP Federal Cap process will not change, and continues to be effective for districts and campuses. Of those missing 2009 AYP solely due to the 1% and/or 2% caps: 52% (113) of districts and 6% (22) of campuses, compared to 18% (71) of districts and 1% (12) of campuses in 2008.

12 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 1% Federal Cap Students are selected randomly from TAKS-Alt results. TAKS-Alt results processed for the cap include: Meet Standard on TAKS-Alt, On track to meet the TAKS-Alt standard based on the TAKS-Alt Growth Measure.

13 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 1% Federal Cap Exceptions to the 1% cap will be processed prior to the Preliminary AYP Release in August 2010 for: School districts registered with the TEA Special Education Residential Facilities Tracking System (RF Tracker) for school year School districts included in the Directory for Services for the Deaf in Texas, Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD).

14 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 1% Federal Cap Other Circumstance Exceptions to the 1% Cap were allowable and were submitted as a regular appeal through the online system. The statewide 1% cap limit was sufficient to allow every school districts with an exception to include all TAKS-Alt passing students as proficient for AYP (in effect, remove the 1% cap).

15 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 2% Federal Cap Step 1) TEA prioritizes campuses by grades served and proportion of students with disabilities enrolled. School districts have the opportunity to review and/or modify the campus rankings. Step 2) Student results are selected in order to maximize the number of campuses that Meet AYP beginning with the campuses assigned the highest priority.

16 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 2% Federal Cap TAKS-M results processed for the cap include: Meet Standard on TAKS-M, Projected to meet the TAKS-M standard based on TPM (for school year , TPM on TAKS-M is available for grades 4, 7, and 10 only).

17 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) 1% and 2% Federal Caps Reminder: The federal cap relates to counting students as proficient for AYP purposes only and does not limit the number of students that may take an alternate assessment. State policies and procedures related to assessment decision-making are detailed in the TEA publication titled Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee Decision-Making Process for the Texas Assessment Program.

18 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) A review of the federal cap process will be provided through a district accessible Texas Education Telecommunications Network (TETN) session on May 20, 2010 from 1pm-3pm (Event # 7362). Contact your school district or ESC for more information.
