The state accountability system assigns ratings to every campus and district in the Texas public education system each year. Generally, campuses and districts earn ratings by having performance that meets absolute standards or by demonstrating sufficient improvement toward the standard. In addition to evaluating performance for all students, the performance of individual groups of students is held to the rating criteria. The student groups are defined to be the major ethnic and racial groups as well as students designated as economically disadvantaged. All of the evaluated groups must meet the criteria for a given rating category in order to earn that label.
Indicators for State Accountability
The indicators for state accountability are based on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) results.
The 2013 accountability system is built on a performance index framework, for which there are four indicators.
For more information about the index system, visit the TEA website.
