Assessment, Accountability, and Compliance supports many different workstreams; more information on each can be found below.
Accountability & Reporting
This team assists in districtwide data-based decision-making through timely reporting and support through student outcomes reporting and grants reporting. Additionally, this team supports the HERC at Rice University partnership with HISD. This team collaborates directly with the Program Compliance team, including State Compensatory Education.
Data Science & ComplianceWe negotiate and support the HISD business owner's conversations and formal agreements with any/all external partners related to the availability, appropriateness, and proper usage of HISD data in order to meet the shared needs of the project. Additionally, we handle standing reports to the public and ad hoc requests for data from HISD leadership by producing the specific deliverable and/or by referring the user to a place the data is already available to them. We oversee survey administration and related data integration/governance through the District's Qualtrics software license. We advise and support best practices in qualitative data collection, from survey instrument design and implementation through results analysis. Furthermore, we are responsible for geo-coding anomalous student residential addresses, solving "Address Validation" problems in PowerSchool, supporting Census Block identification, and creating both static and interactive maps of HISD services and campuses. We manage ("own") all shapefiles maintained by HISD for historic and legal purposes. Lastly, we support Division and Campus compliance with relevant state, federal, and local regulations regarding all aspects of the student experience. This includes data management for required TSDS (TEA) data collections, as well as Unique ID creation through TEAL (TEA).
This team assists Campus Testing Coordinators and district personnel with the administration and resource support of Formative (OnTrack/Curriculum), Interim (CBE, CIRCLE, mCLASS, NAEP, NWEA) and Summative (GT, PSAT/SAT, STAAR, TELPAS) assessments. This team also assists with Assessment Strategy in the use of assessment data to make informed instructional decisions.
