• State Accountability System
     
    The state accountability system uses student assessments (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness or STAAR®), but also makes use of additional indicators to provide parents and taxpayers greater detail on the performance of a district or charter and each individual campus throughout the state. The state accountability system uses a performance domain framework that considers three areas:
     
     
    Student Achievement - evaluates performance across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators, and graduation rates.  Student Achievement Domain Summary
     
     School Progress -  measures district and campus outcomes in two areas: the number of students that grew at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and the achievement of all students relative to districts or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.  School Growth Domain Summary
     
     
    Closing the Gaps - uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.  The indicators are included in this domain, as well as the domain's construction, align the state accountability system with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

    Overall Scores and Ratings are determined by a weighted average of the individual domain scores. Overall Scores and Ratings Summary
