It is the policy of Region 10 Education Service Center not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender or handicap
in its vocational programs, services or activities as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the
Educational Amendments of 1972; and Section 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. Region 10 Education Service
Center will take steps to ensure that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in all educational
programs and services.

Grad Rates on
Reports
Index 4 Vs Distinction
• Index 4 uses the 4- or 5-year grad rate, whichever is higher
• The Post-Secondary Distinction uses the 4-year rate
Index 2 Information
No Growth Measure for Eng 1
(Except for ELL Progress Measure)
Elementary and Middle Schools
Index 2
• Due to New Math TEKS, You Are Left With:
• 3-8 Reading
• And ELL Progress Measure
• 3-8 Math
• ELL Progress Measure Only
• 7th Grade Writing
• Because of this, your Index 2 Status for 2015 is TBD
ELL Progress
Measure
Basic Definition
• Considering that mastery of Reading and Mathematics
curriculum is more challenging for an English Language
Learner, the ELL Progress Measure was created.
• This measure builds in a level of grace (adjusted standard) for
each student who meets eligibility requirements as determined
by the LPAC committee.
• The amount of grace allowed for each student is based on his/her
Years in US Schools and Telpas Composite Rating
• That information places them at a stage on a plan. Each stage has
an adjusted passing standard.
ELL Progress Measure
• Students either qualify for the Student Progress Measure OR
the ELL Progress Measure. Even if an ELL student met the
“regular” progress measure he would only be evaluated on
the ELL Progress Measure.
• Students are only placed on the plan one time, and are not
reevaluated in subsequent years.
• New students this year will be placed on a plan.
• YEARS IN US SCHOOLS DATA MUST BE ACCURATE!

Chromebooks and Tutorials
(or any online testing!)
• Online testing, including STAAR A tutorials, cannot run on
Chromebooks without a virtualization installed.
• http://testnavqualified.com/
• Virtualizations are not free, and can be expensive.
• If Pearson wins the contract for testing when it is up for bid again,
we will update to TestNav 8.0, which will run on Chromebooks
WITHOUT the virtualization for the 2015-2016 testing season.
STAAR A And The Triangle
• Q: Can a STAAR A student also use a calculator as an
accommodation?
• Educators should refer to the 2015 accommodation
policy documents in the Accommodations Triangle at
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index4.aspx?id=2576981
6003&menu_id=793. Once you open an
accommodation document, the second section titled
“Assessments” lists those assessments that the
accommodation can be used on. For instance, if you
open Oral Administration, you will see that this
accommodation does NOT apply to STAAR A. If you
open Calculation Devices, you will see that STAAR A
is listed as an assessment that a calculation device
can be used on. –Student Assessment
STAAR A and December EOC
• Is STAAR A available for the December EOC?
• No.
• What if a student is a first-time tester in December, but the
ARD committee determines the he meets STAAR A eligibility
requirements?
• The ARD committee can decide that he will wait until the spring
to test.
• However, students could benefit from the exposure to the test in
the non-accommodated format.
Non-STAAR A and December
EOC
• Q: We have students who failed an EOC course
last year and are retaking the course. They really
didn’t master second semester material, and we
think they should wait until the spring to test.
Can we decide not to test them?
• A: District and schools are required to provide a student with every testing opportunity he/she is
eligible for.
•
• Sec. 39.025. SECONDARY-LEVEL PERFORMANCE REQUIRED.
• (a)The commissioner shall adopt rules requiring a student in the foundation high school program
under Section 28.025 to be administered each end-of-course assessment instrument listed in
Section 39.023(c). A student is required to achieve a scale score that indicates satisfactory
performance, as determined by the commissioner under Section 39.0241(a), on each end-of-course
assessment instrument listed under Section 39.023(c). For each scale score required under this
subsection that is not based on a 100-point scale scoring system, the commissioner shall provide
for conversion, in accordance with commissioner rule, of the scale score to an equivalent score
based on a 100-point scale scoring system. A student may not receive a high school diploma until
the student has performed satisfactorily on end-of-course assessment instruments in the manner
provided under this subsection. This subsection does not require a student to demonstrate
readiness to enroll in an institution of higher education. -TEA
At-Risk and
Assessment
Scenario: A student fails a state assessment and is labelled
“At-Risk.”
A. He passes the retest, but not at 110%
or
B. The test he failed no longer exists (Chemistry EOC)
How/When Does He Come off the At-Risk List?
Answer: He will remain on the list for the following school
year because of the assessment issue.
Data Files
PEIMS Snapshot or Data File
Upload?
• Best Practice is Data File Upload
• Too many changes from October to Spring Testing
• If you do Snapshot Upload, you can still load a data file
SSI Anomaly
Current 8th Graders
• 5th Graders in 2012
• First Year of STAAR
• No SSI in Reading or Math
• 8th Graders in 2015
• First Year of New Math TEKS
• No SSI in Math
Accelerated
Instruction
Q: Are We Supposed to Provide AI
for Non-SSI Grades?
• Sec. 28.0211. SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE ON ASSESSMENT
INSTRUMENTS REQUIRED; ACCELERATED INSTRUCTION. (a) Except as
provided by Subsection (b) or (e), a student may not be promoted to:
• (1) the sixth grade program to which the student would otherwise be
assigned if the student does not perform satisfactorily on the fifth grade
mathematics and reading assessment instruments under Section
39.023; or
• (2) the ninth grade program to which the student would otherwise be
assigned if the student does not perform satisfactorily on the eighth
grade mathematics and reading assessment instruments under Section
39.023.
• (a-1) Each time a student fails to perform satisfactorily on an
assessment instrument administered under Section 39.023(a) in the
third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth grade, the school district in
which the student attends school shall provide to the student
accelerated instruction in the applicable subject area. Accelerated
instruction may require participation of the student before or after
normal school hours and may include participation at times of the year
outside normal school operations.
What About EOC’s?
• Sec. 28.0217. ACCELERATED INSTRUCTION FOR HIGH SCHOOL
STUDENTS. Each time a student fails to perform satisfactorily
on an assessment instrument administered under Section
39.023(c), the school district in which the student attends
school shall provide to the student accelerated instruction in
the applicable subject area, using funds appropriated for
accelerated instruction under Section 28.0211. Accelerated
instruction may require participation of the student before or
after normal school hours and may include participation at
times of the year outside normal school operations
STAAR Alt 2 and A
STAAR Alt 2 and STAAR A
• TAA Letter Dated October 27 reminds everyone of eligibility
requirements.
• STAAR Alt 2 participation should not increase because STAAR M
no longer exists
• Students must meet applicable qualifications for STAAR A
STAAR Alt 2 Extensions
• From a district:
• TEA is denying ALL requests for extra time for the ALT
test. Even though we will be out of school for a bad weather
day during the window, they are not going to grant any
requests until the window actually opens and we see that
additional time is definitely needed. We are to call TEA if we
see that schools are unable to finish testing.
TAC 101.3021
The Sept 1, 2014 EOC Rule
• TAC 101.3021
• (e) If a student earned high school credit for a course for which
there is an EOC assessment as listed in the TEC, §39.023(c), prior to
enrollment in a Texas public school district and the credit has been
accepted by a Texas public school district, or a student completed a
course for Texas high school credit in a course for which there is an
EOC assessment prior to the 2011-2012 spring administration, the
student is not required to take the corresponding EOC assessment as
listed in the TEC, §39.023(c). This subsection applies only to:
• (1) students who will graduate under the minimum, recommended,
or distinguished high school programs as those programs existed
before the adoption of House Bill 5, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular
Session, 2013; or
• (2) courses for which credit was earned prior to September 1, 2014,
by students who will graduate under the foundation high school
program.
Where Could They Come
From?
•
•
•
•
Private School
Home School
Out of State
Some Virtual Schools
• Is the school based in Texas?
• Is it a private or public school?
• TXVSN are PUBLIC schools, and their students already are
required to take EOC
• Texas Tech
• Their students take EOC’s
TXVSN
December EOC
• Region 10 will administer December EOC’s to students not
enrolled on a campus in your district (such as virtual school or
Texas Tech students)
• They will be required to register beforehand
