Accountability and Data Sergio Maldonado and Kelly Mendoza
Purpose • To provide an accountability overview • State and Federal • To provide an overview of the additional features used to raise campus and district rating one level. • To provide an overview of upcoming changes to the TAKS test. • To provide an overview on how Jane Hambric is doing compared to other campuses.
Accountability Systems • AEIS State Accountability Labels • Exemplary • Recognized • Academically Acceptable • Academically Unacceptable • AYP Federal Accountability Labels • Meet AYP • Missed AYP
Accountability • State mandated testing • Every student in grades 3-11 will take some form of TAKS test. • 27,001 students in Socorro ISD were assessed in 2009 during the primary administration. • Campuses are not only responsible for performance on the assessments but also participation rate, attendance rate, dropout rate, completion rate, and graduation rate
Student Groups Limited English Proficient Special Education
Additional Features • Required Improvement • Texas Projection Measure • Exception Provision
What is Required Improvement? • Formula used to determine if the campus has shown enough improvement to be able to meet the current year accountability standard in two years.
What’s NewTexas Projection Measure (TPM) • Students that are predicted to pass the next high stakes grade level test, however fail the current years test are included as passers for the purpose of determining a campus’ rating. • You will see a new indicator on the state accountability data table that is called “Percent met Standard with TPM.”
What’s NewTexas Projection Measure (TPM) Texas Projection Measure Based on variables that “predict” a student’s performance at the next “high stakes” grade level * In 2009, TPM was not available for 8th grade Science
What’s NewTexas Projection Measure (TPM) • TPM is based on • The student’s current performance on TAKS • The prior year TAKS scores of all students on the campus that the student attends. • TPM Subjects • Math • Reading • Science • SS • Writing
Accountability Update • Texas Projection Measure (TPM) • 2010 TPM Reading/ELA Variables • Student’s 2010 state assessment Reading/ELA score • Student’s 2010 state assessment Math Score • Campus’ 2009 Mean Reading/ELA Score • 2010 TPM Math Variables • Student’s 2010 state assessment Reading/ELA score • Student’s 2010 state assessment Math Score • Campus’ 2009 Mean Math Score
Accountability Update • Texas Projection Measure • Simplified example: TPM Reading STPMR = (a * SR2010) +(b * SM2010) + (c * CMR2009)
What is Exception Provision? • To provide relief to large campuses and districts with more diverse student populations who are evaluated on more measures. • RI >>> TPM >>> Exception Provision • May be applied to any of the TAKS Measures. • No more than 5 points below the standard.
What is Exception Provision? • Moving from Unacceptable to Acceptable = 4 possible exceptions • Moving from Acceptable to Recognized = 4 possible exceptions • Moving from Recognized to Exemplary = 1 possible exception
2009-2010 Testing Updates Vertical Scale • Vertical Scale will take the place of the Scale Score in 2009-2010 • Grades 3-8 • Math and Reading • Instead of a 2100, a student will have a score between a 1 and 1000. The passing score is different for each grade and subject • More rigorous, students will need to get more items correct to meet the standard. • Vertical Scale conversions for 2009 are located on the Raw Score Conversion charts
Vertical Scale 2009-2010 Testing Updates Vertical Scale • More rigor • Reading • Grades 6 and 8 - students will need 3 more questions correct in order to meet the standard. • Math • Grades 3 and 4 in Spanish will need 2 to 3 questions correct in order to meet the standard. • Commended Performance – • Students will need one more item correct to reach commended performance
The advantage of a vertical scale is that a students vertical scale score can be compared across grade levels for the same subject. Vertical Scale 71 66 24 26 30 54 49 34 33 30
What’s New for State Accountability in 2009-2010? • All TAKS (Accommodated) Assessments will be used in State Accountability. • See page 5 of the AEIS campus report for “2010 Preview” will be released in November on the TEA website
Testing Update • 6th grade TAKS will no longer be available in Spanish. • 3rd grade is no longer part of SSI. • Students will take the primary administration in late April
