Transcript Classroom Link Data Collection

January 12, 2010 Updated February 17, 2010

 Starting in 2010-2011 TEA will collect Teacher Class Assignments and Student Course Completion data at the classroom level.

 This information will enable the agency to associate teachers with students in individual classes in order to meet the following state and federal requirements.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 2

 House Bill 3, 81 st Legislative Session, Section 32.258(e) requires TEA to establish a Student Assessment Data Portal  The system must enable teachers to view all results for students in their own classes.

 The system must permit comparisons of student performance at the classroom level. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 3

• SB174, 81 st Legislative Session, Section 2 amends TEC Section 21.045 and directs the State Board of Educator Certification to include the following in the accountability system for educator preparation programs.

• (3) Achievement, including improvement in achievement, of students taught by beginning teachers for the first three years following certification, to the extent practicable. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 4

 The 2009 USDE Statewide Longitudinal Data System Grant  Provides funding to TEA, THECB and school districts to collect classroom level data for teachers and students in elementary, secondary, and post secondary education.

 The project will provide the ability to analyze aggregate student performance by attributes of a teacher or class.

 Will provide aggregate reports to districts on the performance of their high school graduates in specific courses in post secondary education. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 6

 The USDE State Fiscal Stabilization Fund Phase II Grant, and the USDE 2009 ARRA Statewide Longitudinal Data System Grant  Eligibility requirements for these grants include a teacher identifier system with the ability to match teachers to students and student transcript information including courses completed and grades earned.

The following changes have been made to the 2010-2011 PEIMS Collection in order to meet these requirements.

• 040 Staff Identification record – Added a new data element, STAFF-TYPE CODE. • 090 Staff Responsibility Record – Expanded the CLASS-ID-NUMBER from 6 to 14 characters.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 8

• New 300 Course Section record – Added to the Summer Collection (Submission 3).

• New 305 Teacher Class Assignment record – Added to the Summer Collection (Submission 3).

• 415 Course Completion record – Expanded to include course information for grades 1-12.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 9

 The 040 Staff Identification/Demographic, 043 Staff Demographic, 045 Staff Identification Number Change, and 050 Staff Employment records will be collected in both Submission 1 and 3. However, only staff serving as classroom teachers will be reported in the summer.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 10

 A new data element, STAFF-TYPE-CODE, has been added to the 040 record to identify “District Employed Staff” versus “Contracted Instructional Staff”.

 Contracted Instructional Staff are persons not employed by the school district, but are working under contract on a campus or in a district providing instructional services to students. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 11

‣ ‣ The 090 Staff Responsibility record has been modified to expand the CLASS-ID NUMBER from 6 to 14 characters is alpha numeric. The CLASS-ID-NUMBER must be unique by school year, CAMPUS-ID, and SERVICE-ID. This is a change from 2009-2010 where the CLASS-ID-NUMBER was only required to be unique at the CAMPUS-ID, STAFF-ID, and SERVICE-ID level. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 12

 The new 300 Course Section record captures the course offerings for grades 1 12 at a particular campus in the district.

 The record consists of the following data elements: INPUT-RECORD-TYPE-CODE, DISTRICT-ID, CAMPUS-ID, CLASS-ID NUMBER, SERVICE-ID, CLASS-PERIOD, COURSE-SEQUENCE-CODE, NON-DISTRICT BASED-INSTRUCTION-CODE. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 13

 The data key for the 300 Course Section record is: INPUT-RECORD-TYPE-CODE, DISTRICT-ID, CAMPUS-ID, SERVICE-ID, CLASS-ID-NUMBER, and COURSE-SEQUENCE-CODE.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 14

 CLASS-ID-NUMBER must be unique by school year, CAMPUS-ID, SERVICE-ID, and COURSE SEQUENCE-CODE.

 CLASS-ID-NUMBER is 14 characters and may be a mixture of alpha and numeric values.

Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 15

   SERVICE-ID is limited to those services that are valid student course codes.

Do not report the SR, SA, and SS series SERVICE-ID codes (e.g. SR000001 – Discipline Management) on the 300 Course Section record.

SERVICE-ID 02000000, Elementary, Grades 1-6, should only be used when a teacher is serving multi-grade or ungraded student populations, typically in a pullout program. It is not to be used when a district assigns a teacher to multiple grades of students because neither grade has enough students to justify a single classroom. Texas Education Agency - Classroom Link Training - January 12, 2010 17
