2014 Accountability System Overview Kim Gilson Senior Consultant Data and Accountability 972-348-1480 firstname.lastname@example.org http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/account/2014/index.html Accountability Resources: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/account/2014/faq.html Accountability Resources FAQ: 2014 Ratings Labels Performance Index Framework Index 1 Index 2 Index 3 Index 4 Student Achievement Student Progress Closing Performance Gaps Postsecondary Readiness Rating based on 4 Performance Indexes All Targets Must Be Met In a nutshell… Formerly excluded ELLs come into the system Progress available to more students in index two Held to Level III advanced in Index Three Held to Final Recommended in Index Four Safeguard Targets Increase More Distinctions Available First Year of No High School TAKS Scores LOOKING FORWARD… 2014 to 2015… STAAR Phase-In Changes Announced STAAR Standards Phase-In Old to New 10 Advanced Level III: No Changes New Math TEKS and Accountability Students who participate in the spring 2015 STAAR grades 3–8 mathematics administrations will receive a raw score prior to the end of the school year. Once new performance standards are approved, they will be retroactively applied to students’ test results from the spring 2015 administrations. New reports and data files will be sent to school districts in August 2015. New Math TEKS and Accountability Student Success Initiative (SSI) retest opportunities for STAAR mathematics at grades 5 and 8 will not be offered in 2015. For the 2014–2015 school year, districts will use other relevant academic information to make promotion/retention decisions for mathematics. Please note that SSI will still be in effect for reading in 2014–2015. New Math TEKS and Accountability 2015 state and federal accountability results will not be based on the new standards. For accountability purposes only, the state plans to establish a link between the spring 2015 STAAR grades 3–8 mathematics tests and the previous mathematics tests to determine equivalent performance standards STAAR A STAAR M is no longer available STAAR A is an online version of Regular STAAR with digitally based accommodations Available to Special Education students and 504 students with dyslexia or a related disorder STAAR A is NOT subject to the 2% cap on alternative assignments STAAR Alternate 2 Paper/pencil version of STAAR Alt Standardized Still subject to 1% cap on Alternative Assessments Index 1 Did Students Meet Level II Phase-In I? Index 1: Student Achievement Index 1: Student Achievement provides an overview of student performance based on satisfactory student achievement across all subjects for all students. 2014 2013 Combined over All Subjects: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. Student Groups: All Students. Performance Standards: Phase-in 1 Level II (Satisfactory). STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments (15 total): Reading I; Reading II; Reading III Writing I; Writing II; Writing III Algebra l; Geometry; Algebra ll Biology; Chemistry; Physics World Geography; World History; US History English Language Learners (English and Spanish tests): ELLs in US schools Years 1-3 excluded ELLs in US schools Year 4 or more included Combined over All Subjects: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. Student Groups: All Students. Performance Standards: Phase-in 1 Level II (Satisfactory). STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments (5 total): English l; English ll Algebra l Biology US History English Language Learners (English and Spanish tests): ELLs in US schools Year 1 excluded ELLs in US schools Year 2 and beyond included EOC’s and Accountability: TEA takes the BEST SCORE of a the PREVIOUS July, December, and Current May Administration (regardless of when student first tested) Index 1: Student Achievement How Many Students Passed (Phase-in 1 Level II) How Many Students Took The Test NEW TARGET FOR 2014 is 55% (2013 was 50%) Index 1 Data Table Study Index 1 Target: 55 (AEC’s: 30) Group: All Students Looking to 2015… Expect an increase in the target 2013 was 50 2014 was 55 Statutory Requirements are that all assessments are included in the accountability system . Index 1 “works” for all tests, including new ones! Index 2 Student Growth (Not evaluated for AEC’s or High Schools) Big Idea: Did ALL Students Improve from their 2013 Performance? ALL Students… Low students Middle students Special Education students High Performing students Students of all Race/Ethnicities Index 2: Student Progress Index 2: Student Progress focuses on actual student growth independent of overall achievement levels for each race/ethnicity student group, students with disabilities, and English language learners. New for 2014: Students who skip grades included Students who transition from Spanish to English in mathematics included 3rd grade student who receive ELL progress measure will count ELL Denials: Students whose parent(s) have denied ELL services included Considered as Non-ELL student for Index 2 Surprise!

Looking Forward High School Index 2 Will be Comprised of: Eng 1 to Eng 2 8th Grade Math to Algebra 1 So…No Eng 1…..except for ELL’s through the ELL Progress Measure Looking Forward… What if my campus is Improvement Required for Index 2….and then we don’t receive an Index 2 score in 2015??? Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps Big Idea: “Passing” Isn’t Enough! Performance at the Highest Level is Achieved for ALL Students Let’s Put it in Instructional Language: Who is answering the 5-6 hardest questions on the test correctly? Note that before they can answer them correctly… They must have prior experience in problems of that rigor AND They must be expected to attempt them independently Groups: Econ Dis AND Lowest Performing Student Groups from Last Year Group Selection • • From 2013 Data, any race/ethnicity group with at least 25 tests in Reading AND Math is eligible. The lowest performing are chosen for 2014 analysis • If 3+ groups meet minimum size, then lowest 2 are chosen • If 2 groups meet minimum size, then lowest is chosen • If 1 group meets minimum size, then no race/ethnicity group is used Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps emphasizes advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the two lowest performing race/ethnicity student groups. 2013 Points based on STAAR performance: Phase-in 1 Level II satisfactory 2014 Points based on STAAR performance: Phase-in 1 Level II satisfactory performance: performance: One point for each percent of tests MET Phase-in 1 Level II By Subject Area: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies.

By Subject Area: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. Student Groups: Economically Disadvantaged Lowest Performing Race/Ethnicity from 2013 data…groups must have 25 tests in reading AND math Inclusion of ELL Students Writing, Science, And Social Studies It is not uncommon to see 0’s for student groups in these subjects Groups can only be included if they meet minimum size in Reading AND Math Because Writing, Science, and Social Studies aren’t tested every year, student groups often do not meet minimum size and are excluded from these subjects Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps READING Index 3: 2014 Construction – Page STAAR Weighted Performance Rate Example Calculation for Reading Weighted Performance Number of Tests Performance Results: Phase-in 1 Level II Satisfactory and above Number Percent Level III Advanced Number Percent Reading Weighted Performance Rate Economically Disadvantaged Lowest Performing Race/Ethnic Group - 1 Lowest Performing Race/Ethnic Group - 2 80 40 25 80 100% 20 50% 25 100% 40 50% 0 0% 150 50 Total Points Maximum Points 400 600 25 100% 200 Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps Index 3: 2014 Construction – Table 2 (based on 2014 assessment results by subject area) STAAR Weighted Performance Rate Economically Disadvantaged Lowest Performing Race/Ethnic Group - 1 Lowest Performing Race/Ethnic Group - 2 Total Points Maximum Points Reading Weighted Performance 150 50 200 400 600 Mathematics Weighted Performance 125 100 90 315 600 Writing Weighted Performance 80 90 125 295 600 Science Weighted Performance 120 40 90 250 600 50 40 80 170 600 1430 3000 Social Studies Weighted Performance Total Index 3 Score (total points divided by maximum points) 48 What the reports don’t say… How do ALL Students compare in Advanced Level III to the Student Groups?
