Title: State Accountability System Update


1
State Accountability System Update
  • ACET Conference
  • April 2006

2
  • Standard Accountability Procedures

3
TAKS
  • Student Passing Standard
  • The student passing standard will move to Panel
    Recommendation (PR) for the grade 11 test to
    complete the phase-in plan adopted by the SBOE in
    2003.
  • Accountability Standards
  • The 2006 accountability standards were published
    in the 2005 Accountability Manual in June 2005
    and final decisions were announced by the
    commissioner in September 2005.

4
TAKS (contd)
  • Accountability Standards
  • The Academically Acceptable standards will
    increase from 50 to 60 for reading/ELA,
    writing, and social studies from 35 to 40 for
    mathematics and, from 25 to 35 for science.
  • The standards for Recognized (for all subjects)
    and Exemplary (for all subjects) will remain the
    same, at 70 and 90, respectively.
  • Under the alternative education accountability
    (AEA) procedures, the AEA Academically
    Acceptable standard for the TAKS progress measure
    will remain the same as the 2005 standard (40).

5
SDAA II
  • Student Passing Standard
  • The standard for meeting ARD expectations will
    continue to be set locally, consistent with state
    statute.
  • Accountability Standards
  • Standard will be unchanged from 2005.
  • Required Improvement
  • Required Improvement for SDAA II will be
    available for 2006 when analysis of gains made
    between 2005 and 2006 is possible.

6
Completion Rate I
  • GED Recipients
  • Beginning with the class of 2005 (students whose
    cohort entered 9th grade in 2001-02), only
    graduates and continuing students (students who
    return to school for a fifth year) will count as
    high school completers for the accountability
    completion rate
  • Accountability Standards
  • The standards for 2006 are held constant from
    2005 while the definition of a completer is
    changing.

7
Annual Dropout Rate
  • The 2005 standard will be maintained for 2006
    through 2008.
  • The minimum size criteria established in 2005
    will be maintained namely, for All Students, a
    minimum of 5 grade 7-8 dropouts, and at least 10
    grade 7-8 students. For student groups a minimum
    of 5 grade 7-8 dropouts is required and the
    30/10/50 rule applies to the total number of
    grade 7-8 students.

8
Additional Features
  • The percent of underreported students that can
    prevent a district from being rated Exemplary or
    Recognized will decrease from 5.0 to 2.0.

9
Gold Performance Acknowledgments
  • Texas Success Initiative
  • The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) will be used
    for the GPA in 2006 for the first time and will
    replace the TAAS/TASP equivalency indicator.
  • RHSP/DAP
  • The standards will increase for the RHSP/DAP
    indicator, from 60.0 in 2005 to 70.0 in 2006.

10
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability
  • Required Improvement (RI) remains as defined in
    the 2005 system for TAKS in 2006 and 2007.
    Maintain a floor for Recognized that is five
    points below the current year standard. There is
    no floor for gating up to Academically
    Acceptable.
  • The Exceptions Provision remains the same as for
    2005.
  • Campuses rated AEA Academically Unacceptable
    will not prevent a district from receiving a
    rating of Exemplary or Recognized.

11
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability (contd)
  • October 2005 and February 2006
  • Exit-level Testing
  • Currently, only the spring testing results for
    11th grade exit-level testers are included in
    state accountability. Expand the inclusion of
    exit-level results to include the October exit
    level TAKS administrations of grade 11 first time
    testers, provided the students passed all tests
    during that administration and they are not
    represented in the April administration

12
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability (contd)
  • TAKS-I
  • The TAKS-I results will be reported but not
    included in the state accountability base
    indicators used for district and campus ratings
    in 2006 and 2007.

13
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability (contd)
  • Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
  • As announced in October, performance of students
    displaced by Hurricane Katrina and/or Hurricane
    Rita who are enrolled in Texas school districts
    in 2005-06 will not be included in the indicators
    used for district and campus 2006 state
    accountability ratings.

14
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability (contd)
  • Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (contd)
  • Ratings will be evaluated differently for
    districts that were directly impacted by
    Hurricane Rita and were unable to open for
    extended periods of time. Districts directly
    impacted by Hurricane Rita are defined to be
  • Districts that are located in a county designated
    by FEMA as a disaster area that qualifies for
    public assistance due to Hurricane Rita and,
  • Districts that were closed for ten or more
    instructional days between September 21, 2005 and
    November 3, 2005.

15
Other Topics for 2006 Accountability (contd)
  • Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (contd)
  • For identified districts and campuses, the
    accountability system will generate ratings using
    available data. If the 2006 ratings are not
    Academically Unacceptable and are equivalent to
    or better than the rating received in 2005, TEA
    will issue the new system-generated rating on
    August 1. For all others (meaning the 2006
    rating is either Academically Unacceptable or
    lower than the rating received in 2005), TEA will
    issue a rating of Not Rated Other on August 1.

16

under AEA procedures in 2005. The AEA ratings
distributions are below.
AEA Campus Type AEA Academically Acceptable AEA Academically Unacceptable AEA Not Rated Other Total
AEC Of Choice 323 25 0 348
Residential Facility 69 6 1 76

19
Overview (contd)
2005 AEA Ratings Charter Operators Total
AEA Academically Acceptable 74
AEA Academically Unacceptable 15
Total 89
A total of 466 AECs are registered for
evaluation under 2006 AEA procedures. A list of
these campuses is on the AEA website at
http//www.tea.state.tx.us/aea/.
20
2006 AEA Standards
  • TAKS Progress Indicator will remain 40.
  • SDAA II Indicator will remain 40.
  • Completion Rate II (includes GED recipients)
    Indicator remains 75.0.
  • Annual Dropout Rate (Gr 7-12) Indicator remains
    10.0.

21
Attribution of Data to Registered AECs
  • For 2006 accountability
  • Campus accountability subset determines
    attribution of AEC test data.
  • 2004-05 leaver data are attributed according to
    the 85-day rule for AECs that were registered for
    evaluation under AEA procedures in 2005.
  • 2004-05 leaver data are attributed to the last
    campus of attendance for AECs that were not
    registered for evaluation under AEA procedures in
    2005, but are registered in 2006.
  • As required in statute, DAEP and JJAEP data are
    attributed to the students home campus.

22
At-Risk Registration Criterion
  • An at-risk registration criterion will be phased
    in beginning in 2006.
  • Each registered AEC must have a minimum
    percentage of at-risk students enrolled on the
    AEC verified through current year PEIMS fall
    enrollment data in order to be evaluated under
    AEA procedures.
  • The at-risk criterion will begin at 65 in 2006
    and increase by five percentage points each year
    until it reaches 75 in 2008 where it is expected
    to remain as described on the following page.

23
At-Risk Registration Criterion (contd)
  • 2006 65 or higher at-risk student enrollment
    at the AEC
  • 2007 70 or higher at-risk student enrollment
    at the AEC
  • 2008 75 or higher at-risk student enrollment
    at the AEC
  • A safeguard will be incorporated for those AECs
    that are below the at-risk requirement (such as
    averaging the rate over multiple years).

24
Preview of 2007 Accountability
  • TAKS
  • For 2007, the Academically Acceptable standards
    increase by 5 percentage points for all
    subjectsto 65 for Reading/ELA, Writing, and
    Social Studies to 45 for Mathematics and to
    40 for Science. That same year, the standards
    for Recognized increase to 75 for all subjects.

25
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Commended Performance on TAKS
  • Beginning with ratings released in 2007, a label
    of commended will be appended to campus and
    district ratings if the campus or district also
    earns a GPA for at least 50 of the commended
    indicators on which the campus or district is
    evaluated.
  • A minimum of three of the five commended
    indicators must be evaluated or if only two are
    evaluated, both must be acknowledged (2 out of
    2).

26
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Commended Performance on TAKS (contd)
  • Only campuses and districts rated Academically
    Acceptable or higher are eligible to receive this
    additional label. Campuses and districts
    evaluated under AEA procedures are not eligible
    to receive this additional label.

27
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • SDAA II
  • SDAA II indicators will remain the same in 2007
    as will their performance standards.
  • TAKS-I
  • TAKS-I results will be used in the state
    accountability system for the first time in 2008.
    This follows the report, report, use mechanism
    for phasing in new assessment results into the
    accountability system. This phase-in schedule
    means that only a portion of the TAKS-I results
    will be used for accountability in 2008. All
    TAKS-I grades and subjects will be used beginning
    in 2010.

28
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Incorporating TAKS Alternative (TAKS-Alt)
  • TAKS-Alt results will be reported but not used in
    the accountability system for two years beginning
    in 2008.
  • Incorporating the 2 Assessment
  • The 2 test results will be reported but not used
    in the accountability system for two years
    beginning in 2008.

29
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Annual Dropout Rate
  • For 2007 only, add a Hold Harmless Provision to
    the system, such that if the grade 7-8 annual
    dropout rate is the only indicator causing a
    district or campus to be Academically
    Unacceptable, then the campus or district is
    rated Academically Acceptable instead.

30
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Completion Rate (Grade 9 - 12) Indicator
  • The 2007 accountability year (class of 2006) is
    the first year the NCES dropout definition is
    used in the denominator of the completion rate
    calculation. Also, because of the definitional
    change to the denominator, RI cannot be used.
    Both these factors (the definitional change and
    the lack of an RI feature) increase the rigor of
    the completion rate in 2007.

31
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • Underreported Students
  • Increase the rigor of the underreported students
    standard each year through the 2008
    accountability ratings. For example, for 2007
    any district that had more than 100 underreported
    students or greater than 1.5 underreported
    students could not be rated Exemplary or
    Recognized.

32
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • ELL Progress Measure Definition
  • The ELL Progress measure will report the
    percentage of current and monitored LEP students
    who meet any of the following three criteria
  • 1) the student meets the passing standard on the
    TAKS English Reading/ELA test,
  • 2) the student meets the proficiency level on
    the RPTE based on years in U.S. schools for
    first-time RPTE testers, or
  • 3) the student shows progress on the RPTE from
    the prior year.

33
Preview of 2007 Accountability (contd)
  • ELL Progress Measure Definition (contd)
  • The ELL measure will be reported for two years
    (2005-06 and 2006-07) before being used for the
    first time in the 2008 accountability year.
  • Standards will be set during the 2007
    accountability cycle (using 2006 results).

34
GPA Standards for 2007 and beyond
  • Keep the 2006 standards steady from 2007 to 2010
    for the following indicators Advanced
    Placement/International Baccalaureate results,
    attendance rate, and comparable improvement on
    Reading and Mathematics.
  • For advanced/dual enrollment course completion,
    the acknowledgment standard will increase to
    30.0 in 2009.
  • For commended performance, increase the standard
    for each subject by 5 percentage points every
    other year beginning in 2007, resulting in an
    increase to 30 for 2009 and 2010.

35
GPA Standards for 2007 and beyond
  • For RHSP/DAP, increase the standard to 80.0 in
    2007 and 2008, and to 85.0 in 2009 and 2010.
  • Keep the SAT/ACT indicator in the GPA system and
    maintain the current standard through 2008 and
    use only the Mathematics and Critical Reading
    scores on the new SAT.
  • The standard for the Texas Success Initiative in
    English Language Arts and Mathematics will remain
    at 50 in 2007 and increase by 5 percentage
    points each year thereafter until 2010.
