HB3 Transition Plan Section II Accountability
NEW! New Accountability Systems • Development in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 • Alignment with the new provisions of House Bill (HB) 3 • Emphasis on college- and career-ready performance on STAAR NEW!
STAAR & AYP Accountability “ “ The primary consideration that will guide development of the new AYP system will be alignment with the state accountability system to the greatest extent possible.
Indicators: State Requirements • Performance on STAAR 3-8 Reading 3-8 Writing 4 & 7 Social Studies 8 Science 5 & 8 Math 3-8 Statute requires that indicators combine results across grades.

Indicators: State Requirements • Other Indicators Dropout Rates Completion and Graduation Rates
Indicators: State Requirements • Required Improvement • Required Improvement will be a feature of the system. • Date Effective for Satisfactory Performance: 2013 • Date Effective for College Readiness Performance: 2014 • Options: • Improvement to Long-Term Goal • Improvement to Annual Accountability Standard • Reduction in Performance Gaps • Increasing Annual Standards • Improvement Across Multiple Years • Any Improvement or No Decline • Multi-Year Average Performance
Indicators: State Requirements • Three Year Average Performance A new statutory provision gives districts and campuses the option to use three-year average performance to meet an accountability standard when current year performance does not meet the standard. Performance Indicators Dropout and District Completion Rates HS Graduation Indicator Date Effective: TBD Date Effective: 2013 Commissioner Rule
Indicators: Federal Requirements Reading/ELA Performance Math Performance Federal caps on alternative assessments Reading/ELA Participation (95%) Math Participation (95%) Other Indicator
Options for Resolving Differences Add Science and Social Studies Performance Add Reading/ELA and Math Participation Implement federal caps on results of alternate assessments
Student Groups Required Groups State: Evaluation based on race/ethnicity and SES Federal: Evaluation based on race, SES, SPED, and LEP Groups being Considered Additional race/ethnicity groups: Asian, Multiracial, Other Not Economically Disadvantaged LEP, At Risk, Special Education
Student GroupsAdditional Options: State Define student group membership longitudinally (Eco Dis and LEP) New options for student groups similar to the All Student group Expand the student groups evaluated
College Readiness STANDARD TBD, Effective 2014 Reading/ELA and Math Grades 3-8 and EOC SUBJECTS STUDENTS Required for 5 student groups Required Improvement, Effective 2014 Three-Year Average, Effective TBD ANY HELP?
Satisfactory performance on these assessments may be used as a factor when determining whether the student satisfies the cumulative score requirement for graduation: Pre ACT AP IB SAT PSAT The commissioner will determine whether these results will be factored in the assessment results used for state accountability.
Dropout/Grad/Completion Rate • State statute requires that six groups of students be removed from the dropout definition used for state accountability: • Previous dropouts; • Students who are not in membership for purposes of average daily attendance; • Students who have been ordered by courts to attend GED programs but have not earned GED certificates; • Students who are incarcerated in state jails and federal penitentiaries as adults and as persons certified to stand trial as adults; • Students whose initial enrollment in a school in the United States in grades 7–12 was as unschooled refugees or asylees; and • Students detained in county detention facilities that are located outside the students' home districts.
Dropout Rate Option 1 Use a longitudinal dropout rate for first-time ninth graders to measure how many students drop out before graduating. Option 2 Use an annual dropout rate to measure how many students drop out in one school year. • Option 2a: Use selected grades, i.e., grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and/or 12. • Option 2b: Use selected grade spans, i.e., grades 7–8, grades 9–12, and/or grades 7–12.
Graduation Rate TEA currently uses a four-year graduation rate that measures early or on-time graduation. However, some students take longer than four years to graduate. Options for 2013 Accountability: 4-Year Rate 5-Year Rate 6-Year Rate 7-Year Rate Class of 2012 Class of 2011 Class of 2010 Class of 2009
Completion Rate Some advocate counting GED recipients as completers because a GED can be used for entrance into college and to obtain employment. A system control could be used that requires graduates to comprise a certain portion of the rate. # Graduates + Continuers +GED # Graduates + Continuers + GED + Dropouts
AEA Accountability Procedures NCLB requires that all campuses, including AECs, are evaluated in the federal accountability system. • The state accountability system has the option of including AEA procedures designed specifically to evaluate AECs. Options include: • Use Same Indicators and Standards as Regular Campuses. • Use Same Indicators, but Different Standards, as Regular Campuses • Develop Alternative Education Accountability Procedures
Ratings 2013 “Unacceptable” “Acceptable” Option A “Unacceptable” “Acceptable” “Recognized” “Exemplary” Option B “Unacceptable” “Acceptable” with Recognized & Exemplary Distinctions 2014
Ratings “ Recognized and Exemplary ratings are distinction designations for meeting higher college- and career-ready performance standards, rather than higher performance on the same indicators used for accountability ratings. “
