2013 Reporting Update

  • New for 2012-13, the Texas Performance Reporting System (TPRS) provides …

  • Performance and participation results for additional student groups:

    • Economically Disadvantaged / Non-Economically Disadvantaged

    • Male / Female;

    • Special Education / Non-Special Education;

    • At Risk / Non-At Risk; and

    • Migrant  / Non-Migrant. 

  • Disaggregated performance results for English Language Learners (ELL) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) student groups.

  • Indicators not previously reported on TAPR, such as College-Ready Graduates performance in either subject (ELA or Math), AP/IB Results by subject area, and SAT/ACT by subject area.

Index 1 student achievement

Index 1: Student Achievement

Index 1: Student Achievement provides an overview of student performance based on satisfactory student achievement across all subjects for all students.

  • Combined over All Subjects: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies.

  • Student Group: All Students.

  • Performance Standards: Phase-in 1 Level II (Satisfactory).

Texas Education Agency | Office of Assessment and Accountability | Division of Performance Reporting


Index 1 student achievement1

Index 1: Student Achievement

Index 1: ConstructionSince Index 1 has only one indicator, the Total Index Points and Index Score are the same: Index Score = Total Index Points. Total Index Points is the percentage of assessments that meet the Phase-in 1 Level II Standard.

Each percent of students meeting the Phase-in 1 Level II performance standard contributes one point to the index. Index scores range from 0 to 100 for all campuses and districts.

System safeguards

System Safeguards

Safeguard Measures and Targets:

  • Reporting system disaggregates performance by student group, performance level, and subject area.

  • Performance rates arecalculatedfrom the assessment results used to calculate Index 1: Student Achievement.

  • 2013 targets for the disaggregated system-safeguard results:

  • STAAR performance target corresponds to Index 1 (50%);

  • STAAR participation target required by federal accountability(95%);

  • Federal graduation rate targets and improvement calculations for 4-year rate (78%) and 5-year rate (83%); and

  • Federal limit on use of alternate assessments (1% and 2%).

  • These federal accountability requirements are limited to the Reading/English language arts and Mathematics performance and participation indicators.

  • Other federal requirements require the Reading/English language arts and Mathematics performance and participation system safeguard information.

Overview of federal accountability1

Overview of Federal Accountability

  • Note that performance information must be reported at the 2012-13 federally approved target of 75% for the following:

  • Title III Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs), using only the ELL performance and participation information; and,

  • USDE Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) State Performance Plan (SPP) and State Annual Performance Report (APR) that measure the students served by special education programs.
