HISD Research Briefs and Ratings

  • The Houston Independent School District (HISD) Accountability System is a method of evaluating campuses with regard to both performance and progress. A campus may receive a Current Performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, Low Acceptable, or Low Performing. Progress or growth beyond the previous years results may impact the Progress Rating assigned to a school. The Current Progress ratings are Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, Minimal, and No Progress. From 1993 to 2001 the  Current Performance rating was  based upon a school's TAAS performance. Beginning with the 2002 ratings, performance on the Stanford 9 and Aprenda 2 is also included in the calculations. The Current Progress rating for secondary schools also includes changes in attendance and dropout rates. For 2003, TAKS replaced TAAS, so no progress rates were given.
