2008 Ratings Highlights (cont.)
Exceptions Provision – Overview

Rationale for modifications to Exceptions Provision:
Originally intended to provide a mechanism for avoiding
the Academically Unacceptable rating due to new
indicators or indicators that were being phased-in to the
system.

Changes were designed to provide relief for larger
campuses and districts serving more diverse student
populations that are evaluated on more measures.


Gold Performance
Acknowledgments (GPA) Overview
22

GPA was created to recognize districts and campuses for
high performance on indicators that are in addition to those used
to determine state accountability indicators.

Districts are eligible for a maximum of 12 possible GPAs.
Campuses are eligible for a maximum of 14 possible GPAs.

Beginning in 2008, AEA GPA indicators recognize charters and
AECs evaluated under AEA procedures for high performance.

Lists of districts or schools by GPA categories or by any combination
of acknowledgments are located at
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/account/2008/gpa.srch.html.
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS
23

TAKS (Accommodated)
The 2008 accountability system included performance on the following
subjects and grades:
 Science (grades 5, 8, 10, & 11)
 Science (grade 5 Spanish)
 Social Studies (grades 8, 10, & 11)
 English Language Arts and Mathematics (grade 11)

This affects the following indicators on the AEIS report:
 TAKS Met 2008 Standard, shown by grade
 TAKS Met 2008 Standard, shown summed across grades
 TAKS Commended Performance
 Texas Success Initiative (both ELA and mathematics)
 Comparable Improvement (grade 11 only)
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS (cont.)
24

TAKS 2010 Preview
Includes performance on all TAKS (Accommodated) tests,
in all subjects, all grades. Only 2008 is available for preview,
because TAKS (Accommodated) tests were first administered
to all grades and subjects in 2008.

Grade 8 Science
TAKS Grade 8 science results are based on the 2008
student passing standard—Panel Recommendation (PR).
Grade 8 science results are shown by grade, and are
included in the summed across grade accountability
indicators and the Commended Performance results.
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS (cont.)
25

Participation
“TAKS-M Only” has been added to the Tested subsection,
and SDAA II has been deleted. “ARD Exempt” has been
deleted from the Not Tested subsection.

Student Success Initiative – Grade 8
2008 is the first year for the student success initiative for
grade 8. TAKS grade 8 reading and mathematics
performance is included in this indicator. Only one year is
available, for the first two measures: (1) Students
Requiring Accelerated Instruction, and (2) TAKS
Cumulative Met Standard.
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS (cont.)

English Language Learners Progress Measure
 For 2008, the RPTE has been replaced by the
Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment
System (TELPAS). Because two years of comparable
assessment data are not yet available, the ELL
progress measure cannot be computed in 2008.
 A progress measure based on two years of TELPAS
results will be reported for the first time on the 2008-09
AEIS reports.
26
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS (cont.)

TAKS-M
TAKS-M results are reported at the state level only in 2008.
 Since TAKS-M was only given in reading, mathematics,
and science at grades 3-8 and 10, all grades and subjects
are not available to be reported at the district and campus
levels until 2009.
27
 TAKS-M state results can be accessed online via an
embedded hyperlink on the HTML version of the state
AEIS report, similar to the existing link to Performance
of Mobile Students.
Key Changes to 2007-08 AEIS (cont.)
TAKS-Alt
28

TAKS-Alt performance results will not be incorporated in
the 2008 AEIS reports.

TAKS-Alt will continue to be included in the participation
data reported on the AEIS reports.

TAKS-Alt performance will be reported at the district
and campus levels in 2009 in coordination with the
TAKS-M results.
2007-08 School Report Card (SRC)
Overview
29

The SRC contains a subset of the performance, staff, and
financial data that is reported in the AEIS reports.

As required by statute, these report cards must be
disseminated to the “parent, guardian, conservator, or
other person having lawful control of each student at
the campus.”

The intent is for the SRC to be distributed to the homes
of each student.
2009-10 Public Education Grant
(PEG) Program Overview
30

A statutorily-mandated program of school choice
(TEC Ch. 29, Subchapter G, §§29.201-29.205).

Statute addresses campus identification, funding issues,
and student eligibility issues.

PEG lists have been issued since September 1995.
PEG Criteria
31

Partially aligned with accountability ratings, but is not aligned
with the state system, AYP, or the TAT list.

PEG criteria are more rigorous on the evaluation of science
results than the state standards.

There is a three year moving time frame, so even improved
schools stay on the list if they were AU in any of the prior
three years.

The number of campuses this year is anticipated to be lower
than last year. Last year there were 831 schools identified.
PEG District Responsibilities
32

Statute requires that districts notify parents of the
2008-09 PEG list by February 1, 2009.

PEG list is based on 2006, 2007, and 2008 performance,
but is effective for the 2009-10 school year.

The PEG Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) web page
provides useful information on various PEG-related
issues and is located at
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/peg_faq.html.
Technical Assistance
Teams (TAT)
Technical Assistance Teams (TAT)
34

For 2008-09, there are 292 unique districts with one or more
campuses on the TAT list compared to the 395 unique districts
for the prior year.

Secondary is the most common campus type on the list
representing 54% of all campuses listed (among the Both,
Elementary, Middle School, and Secondary categories).

The 2008-09 TAT list has 510 campuses with no waivers.
This is a reduction of 367 campuses from the prior year.
TAT Campus Identification

A campus is included on the 2008-09 TAT list if the
following conditions occur:
o
o
o
35
The campus was rated Academically Acceptable
(under standard procedures) or AEA: Academically
Acceptable (under AEA procedures);
and
The 2007-08 performance does not meet the 2009
for AA or AEA: AA accountability standards;
or
The campus avoided being rated AU or AEA: AU
in 2008 due to the School Leaver Provision.
2009 TAT Methodology
36

TAKS will include the same TAKS (Accommodated) results
as were used in 2008: science (English) for grades 5,8,10, & 11;
science (Spanish) for grade 5; social studies for grades 8,10, &
11; English language arts (ELA) for grade 11; and mathematics
for grade 11.

The 2008-09 TAT list utilizes 2007-08 and 2006-07 TAKS
results. The 2006-07 TAKS performance indicators have been
recalculated to include grade 8 science and the TAKS
(Accommodated) results.

Campuses that meet the 2009 accountability standards using
the Exception Provision or Required Improvement are not
included on the TAT list.

AEA Procedures
2009 Registered AECs
48

The list of 2009 Registered AECs is available on the AEA
website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/aea/.

Each registered AEC must meet the 75% at-risk
registration criterion in order to receive an AEA rating
on July 31, 2009.
At-Risk Registration Criterion
49

In April 2009, letters will be mailed to the registered AECs
that do not meet the 75% at-risk registration criterion
informing them the AEC will shift from AEA to standard
accountability and that the AEC will be evaluated under
2009 standard accountability procedures.

The Final 2009 Registered AEC list will be posted on the
AEA website in May 2009. This list will contain the AECs
that will receive an AEA rating on July 31, 2009.

A list of the charter operators that will be rated under 2009
AEA procedures will be posted on the AEA website in May
2009.
2009 AEA Standards
50

TAKS Progress indicator standard increases to 50%.

Completion Rate II (including GED recipients) indicator
standard remains 70.0%.

Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-12) indicator standard
is scheduled to remain 10.0%.
TAKS Progress Indicator
51

The TAKS Progress indicator sums performance results
across grades (3-12) and subjects to determine ratings
under AEA procedures.

This indicator is based on the number of tests taken, not
on the number of students tested.
TAKS Progress Indicator (cont.)
52

The TAKS Progress numerator is calculated as the
number of tests meeting the student passing standard or
having a Texas Growth Index (TGI) score that meets the
student growth standard of 0 (zero) or higher and TAKS
exit-level retests meeting the student passing standard at
the March and April/May administrations or in the
previous October or July.

The denominator is the number of TAKS tests taken and
the number of TAKS exit-level retests meeting the student
passing standard at the March and April/May
administrations or in the previous October or July.
Use of District At-Risk TAKS Data
53

Applies to AECs only – performance results of all
students in the charter are included in the charter’s
performance and used in determining the charter’s rating.

If the AEC does not meet the TAKS Progress standard or
demonstrate Required Improvement based on results for
fewer than 10 TAKS tests, or if there are no TAKS results
for the AEC, then the AEC is evaluated on the district
performance of at-risk students.

In 2008, district at-risk TAKS data were used to evaluate
50 AECs.
Completion Rate II Indicator




54
This longitudinal rate shows the percent of students who
completed or who are continuing their education four
years after first attending grade 9 in Texas.
Completion Rate II counts graduates, continuing students
(students who return to school for a fifth year), and GED
recipients in the definition for AECs of Choice and charters
evaluated under AEA procedures.
Residential Facilities are not evaluated on the Completion
Rate II indicator. Charters that operate only Residential
Facilities are not evaluated on the Completion Rate II
indicator.
Beginning in 2008, only All Students are evaluated; student
groups are not evaluated separately.
Use of District At-Risk
Completion Rate II Data
55

Applies to AECs of Choice only – performance results of
all students in the charter are included in the charter’s
performance and used in determining the charter’s rating.

If the AEC of Choice does not meet the accountability
standard or demonstrate Required Improvement, or if the
AEC of Choice has students in grades 9, 10, 11, and/or 12
but does not have a Completion Rate II, then the AEC of
Choice is evaluated on Completion Rate II (including GED
recipients) of at-risk students in the district.

In 2008, district at-risk Completion Rate II data were used
to evaluate 168 AECs of Choice.
Annual Dropout Rate Indicator
56

The Annual Dropout Rate indicator is grade 7-12 dropouts
as a percent of total students enrolled at the registered AEC
or charter in grades 7-12 in a single school year.

Beginning in 2008, only All Students are evaluated; student
groups are not evaluated separately.

Use of the School Leaver Provision (SLP) in 2009 and
beyond will be reviewed with advisory groups in spring 2009.
Use of District At-Risk
Annual Dropout Rate Data
57

District at-risk dropout data were used for the first time in
2008 AEA ratings.

Applies to AECs only – performance results of all students
in the charter are included in the charter’s performance and
used in determining the charter’s rating.

If the AEC does not meet the accountability standard or
demonstrate Required Improvement, then the AEC is
evaluated on Annual Dropout Rate of at-risk students in the
district.

In 2008, district at-risk Annual Dropout Rate data were
used to evaluate 110 AECs.
TEASE Accountability
58

The TEASE Accountability secure website provides school
districts and charters with performance-based monitoring
analysis system (PBMAS) reports and state and federal
accountability products, such as confidential unmasked data
tables, summary tables, confidential student listings, data
files, and other helpful accountability information.

Each superintendent and charter school executive director
should apply for access and may designate others in their
district (and at the ESC) to also have access.
