  5. PBM • The Proposed 2008 PBM Manual will be posted May 16, 20008

  6. PBM: Intervention Update • The ISAM system will be used to provide updates to LEAs related to the completion of 2007-2008 TEA review activities. • “Correspondence” indicating completion of “routine” reviews will be disseminated through ISAM beginning in late May or early June • Correspondence that details noncompliance of that reflects unique, individualized circumstances for an LEA will continue to be disseminated in hard copy

  9. SPP 13 – Secondary Transition • All 14 big districts self-identified noncompliance • The districts will develop a CIP to correct the noncompliance • Any district reporting noncompliance in SPP data submissions will be expected to submit a CIP for corrective actions

  10. SPP • Fall 2008 (anticipated October) • Districts will be required to review documentation and submit information to the TEA for SPP indicators 11,12, and 13 related to 2007-2008 data.

  12. SPP - Significant Change • Districts that have intervention levels in Fall 2008 and that identify noncompliance with these indicators will have to include this noncompliance in their 2008-2009 CIP • Districts that do not have intervention levels from PBM, but identify noncompliance will have to develop and submit a CIP (due date projected as November 2008)

  13. SPP • The correction of any noncompliance identified will follow the same procedures as currently being implemented for the 14 identified districts

  26. State Accountability Dawn Schuenemann

  27. TETN Accountability Update Session April 24, 2008

  28. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2008

  29. Factors Affecting 2008 Accountability Increased Rigor of 2008 Accountability • Addition of grade 8 science assessment at Panel Recommended standard • Addition of TAKS (Accommodated) in science and social studies (all grades) and grade 11 (all subjects) • Removal of the School Leaver Provision from the completion/dropout/underreported indicators • Continued impact of the phase-in of the NCES dropout definition through 2010

  30. Factors Affecting 2008 Accountability (continued) Increased Rigor of 2008 Accountability (continued) • Impact of Panel Recommended exit level TAKS passing standards on the completion rate for the Class of 2007 • Increased number of student groups evaluated due to inclusion of TAKS-Accommodated • Increased number of student groups evaluated on middle school campuses due to grade 8 science • The TAKS standards for Academically Acceptable increase for reading/ELA, mathematics, and science by five points each.

  31. TAKS Indicator Standards Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year

  32. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision What Has Changed for 2008 • Campuses and districts may now use the provision to achieve a Recognized or an Exemplary rating. • Districts and campuses will be eligible to receive four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Academically Acceptable rating or four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Recognized rating. • The minimum performance floor values are altered for mathematics and science for the Academically Acceptable rating.

  33. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) What Remains Unchanged • The Exceptions Provision will continue to be applied to only the 25 TAKS measures (5 subjects multiplied by 5 groups: All Students, African American, Hispanic, White, and Economically Disadvantaged). • The Exceptions Provision will not be applicable to either Completion Rate I or Annual Dropout Rate indicators. • The Exception Provision cannot elevate a rating more than one rating category. • An exception cannot be used for the same measure for two consecutive years.

  34. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Academically Acceptable or Recognized • The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor to be eligible to use this provision. The floors vary by subject and rating category, as shown in the following table.

  35. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued)

  36. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Academically Acceptable or Recognized • The ranges for the number of measures evaluated in order to earn an exception are changed from the ranges used previously, as shown in the following table.

  37. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued)

  38. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Exemplary • Districts and campuses will be eligible to receive one possible exception in order to achieve the Exemplary rating. • A minimum of 10 assessment measures must be evaluated in order to be eligible to use the one exception. • The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor that is 5 points below the Exemplary standard. Because the Exemplary standard is 90% for all subjects for 2008 and beyond, the floor is 85%.

  39. TAKS Indicator (continued) Exceptions Provision (continued)

  40. Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8) Indicator Standards Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year • A single standard will be used for all rating categories.

  41. Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-8) Indicator (continued) Required Improvement • In 2008 Required Improvement (RI) will be calculated because the dropout definition for 2006-07 and 2005-06 are the same. • The same RI calculation is applied to all rating categories. School Leaver Provision • The School Leaver Provision will not be applied in 2008 and beyond.

  42. Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator Standards • Standards are unchanged from 2007 and are scheduled to remain constant through 2010. • Indicator will include two years under the NCES dropout definition.

  43. Completion Rate I (Grade 9-12) Indicator (continued) Required Improvement • The floor needed to be eligible to use RI to achieve the Recognized rating is changed to be the Academically Acceptable standard. This would decrease the floor value from 80.0% to 75.0%. School Leaver Provision • The School Leaver Provision will not be applied in 2008 and beyond.

  44. Underreported Students Data Quality Indicator Standards School Leaver Provision • The School Leaver Provision will not be applied in 2008 and beyond.

  45. Standard Accountability Decisions for 2009 and Beyond

  46. TAKS Indicator Standards 2008 and Beyond * Standards for 2010 and beyond will be reviewed annually and are subject to change. Numbers in bold indicate a change from the prior year.

  47. TAKS (Accommodated) Use of TAKS (Accommodated) in 2008 and Beyond Tex in bold indicate a change from the prior year

  48. TAKS Student Growth Measure • A method for measuring annual student improvement on the TAKS tests will be selected during the fall of 2008. • Student growth reporting for individual students is scheduled to begin with the 2008-09 school year. • Student growth will be used in the state accountability system as soon as possible, which could be as early as the 2009 accountability cycle.

  49. TAKS Student Growth Measure (continued) • The 2009 advisory groups will recommend the method for incorporating growth and will review 2009 TAKS standards in relation to the growth decisions. • If student growth is incorporated beginning in 2009, other components of the system such as Required Improvement, Comparable Improvement, and the Exceptions Provision will also be subject to review during the 2009 development cycle.

  50. Vertical Scale • To meet new statutory requirements, a vertical scale will be implemented in grades 3-8 for TAKS mathematics and reading starting with the 2008-09 school year. • A vertical scale is a scale score system that allows comparison of student test scores across grade levels within a subject. • With vertical scaling, scores that measure content in the same subject but at different grade levels are placed onto a common scale.
