Performance Indicators Students must have been enrolled the full academic year: snapshot and test date. The scores are summed across grades by subject.
Where does it all come from? Texas Education Code State Accountability

AEIS Data Districts and campuses receive AEIS System Reports in November of each year for the prior year’s results. The Accountability Rating System (State Accountability) reviews a subset of AEIS indicators with specific performance standards. School Report Cards, (available on the web through the AEIS site, by year starting with 1997-98) are sent out to parents by their children's schools. These show a subset of the performance, staff, and financial measures in the AEIS reports.
Accountability Rating System (State) How does this system work? – Rating Labels Exemplary Recognized Academically Acceptable Academically Unacceptable – 35 Potential Measures Minimum Size Criteria – Other…See Mini-Chart – Information is reported through ‘Data Tables’…. District & Campus
Performance Standard Continuum Beyond the All Students, does the indicator’s group size meet minimum size criteria? If yes, was the standard met? If no, was required improvement met? If no, was the standard met with TPM applied? If no, can an ‘Exception’ be applied? – Are there enough exceptions to move the campus to AA? – Was the exception used for the same measure the prior year? If so, it cannot be used again the subsequent year.
Students must have been enrolled the ‘full academic year’ –snapshot date (last Friday in October) & test date to be included in accountability measures. This is called the accountability sub-set. Performance Standard Continuum
Required Improvement (State) Required Improvement Calculations are applied if the standard is not met. RI = The amount of gain required to reach the standard in two years. Can be used to move from Unacceptable to Acceptable or Acceptable to Recognized. The gain from 2009 must allow the indicator to reach the standard if the gain were repeated the next year. There is no floor when moving to Acceptable. The rating must be within 5 points to move to Recognized. Required Improvement is always reviewed first. If it cannot increase the indicator rating, TPM is applied, followed by Exceptions, if applicable.
Texas Projection Measure (TPM) Identifies if student is projected to pass next high stakes test at 5 th, 8 th or 11 th grade. Only available for students in grades 3-10 who: Test on TAKS, TAKS-Acc, TAKS-LAT Have scored results this year for both Reading and Math Test in the same language TPM is not available for: 7 th Grade Writing 8 th Grade Science (2009 only, available in 2010) All 11 th Grade Subjects TPM can increase the campus rating to Acceptable, Recognized or Exemplary. If applying TPM does not raise the indicator rating, Exceptions are reviewed, if applicable.
Exceptions Academically Acceptable AND RecognizedExemplary Performance Floor: Academically Acceptable – 5 points for all subjects. Recognized – The measure must be no more than 5 percentage points below the Recognized standard for all subjects. Performance Floor: The measure must be no more than 5 percentage points below the Exemplary standard for all subjects # of measures# of exceptions# of measures# of exceptions 1-401-90 5-81≥ 101 9-112 12-153 ≥ 164 Exceptions may not be used for the same indicator two consecutive years.
