  19. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond TAKS Indicator - Standards * Standards for 2010 will be reviewed in 2009 and are subject to change. Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year.

  20. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) TAKS (Accommodated)

  21. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Texas Projection Measure • The 2009 accountability development process will review the possible use of the new student projection measure in the 2009 accountability system. • Final decisions will be announced by the Commissioner in April 2009.

  22. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Texas Projection Measure • TPM provides an estimate for how individual students are likely to perform in the next high-stakes grade (grades 5, 8, and 11) after receiving instruction in grade-level content. • For example, students in grades 3 and 4 who take reading and mathematics TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), or LAT TAKS will be projected to meet the passing standard in grade 5.

  23. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Texas Projection Measure • Students’ 2009 Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), TAKS (Accommodated), and LAT scores in both reading/English language arts and mathematics, along with the campus-level mean scores in the projection subject will be used to predict their performance in next high-stakes testing grade. • For example, a student’s 2009 reading and mathematics TAKS scale score and the mean campus scale score in reading will be used to project the reading scale score for the student in the next high stakes grade level.

  24. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8) * Standards for 2010 are recommended and subject to change after the spring 2009 development cycle is completed. • The School Leaver Provision (SLP) will no longer apply in 2009 accountability and beyond. • Required Improvement - Continued use

  25. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator * Standards for 2009 and beyond are recommended and subject to change after the spring 2009 development cycle is completed.

  26. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) • School Leaver Provision will no longer be applicable in 2009 accountability and beyond. • Required Improvement – Continued use • Other options will be explored with advisory groups. Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator (cont.)

  27. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Underreported Students • The School Leaver Provision will no longer apply to underreported students. • In 2009, the number and percent of underreported students that can prevent a district from being rated Exemplary or Recognized becomes more rigorous with greater than 5.0% or greater than 150 students (down from 200 students). • Districts with fewer than 5 underreported students will not be evaluated on this indicator.

  28. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Hurricane Ike Provision • Consider options for districts that were directly affected by Hurricane Ike similar to the Hurricane Rita provision during the 2005-06 school year. • Consider options for districts serving students displaced by Hurricane Ike similar to the Hurricane Katrina/Rita provision, based on the PEIMS Crisis Code data collected in fall 2008.

It is available online at http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Senate/commit/c835/c835.htm.

  33. Preview of 2009 AEA Procedures

  34. 2008 AEA Overview A total of 423 alternative education campuses (AECs) and 71 charter operators were evaluated under AEA procedures in 2008. Below is the AEA ratings distributions.

  35. School Leaver Provision • A School Leaver Provision (SLP) was included in the 2008 state accountability system, such that the leaver indicators (either alone or in combination) did not cause a lowered campus or district rating. • For 2008 AEA ratings, if the Completion Rate II and/or Annual Dropout Rate indicator(s) were the only cause for an AEA: Academically Unacceptable rating, then the AEC or charter was assigned the AEA: Academically Acceptable label. • Use of the SLP in 2009 and beyond will be reviewed with advisory groups in spring 2009. The SLP is scheduled to apply only to the AEA Annual Dropout Rate indicator in 2009.

  36. School Leaver Provision (cont.) • As a result of the SLP, a total of 65 AECs achieved the AEA: Academically Acceptable rating in 2008. • 19 AECs used the SLP for Annual Dropout Rate • 26 AECs used the SLP for the Completion Rate II • 20 AECs used the SLP for both the Annual Dropout Rate and Completion Rate II indicators • A total of 30 charter operators used the SLP to achieve the AEA: Academically Acceptable rating in 2008. • 9 charters used the SLP for Annual Dropout Rate • 6 charters used the SLP for the Completion Rate II • 15 charters used the SLP for both the Annual Dropout Rate and Completion Rate II indicators

  37. AEA Gold Performance Acknowledgments (GPA) Overview • 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. • 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 athttp://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/account/2008/gpa.srch.html.

  38. AEA GPA Overview (cont.) • AEA campuses and charters were first evaluated on GPA indicators in 2008. Only the All Students group is evaluated; student groups are not evaluated separately. • There are 12 AEA GPA indicators. The two Comparable Improvement indicators are not evaluated for AEA GPA. • An Attendance Rate standard of 95.0% is applied to all AECs and charters under AEA GPA. • The percentages of AECs and charters earning GPAs are smaller than their counterparts evaluated under standard procedures. Among AEA charters, the GPA earned most often is the RHSP/DAP (21.1%). The GPA earned most often by AECs is Attendance Rate (20.5%).

  39. 2009 Registered AECs • The list of 2009 Registered AECs is available on the AEA website at http://ritter.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.

  40. At-Risk Registration Criterion • 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.

  41. 2009 AEA Standards • 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%.

  42. TEASE Accountability • 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. • http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/webappaccess/AppRef.htm
