The State Accountability System for 2018 and beyond will consist of four areas:
- Student Achievement Domain: Evaluates academic performance on STAAR and postsecondary readiness
- School Progress Domain:
- Part A: Academic Growth – Evaluates individual student growth on STAAR from year to year
- Part B: Relative Performance – Compares a school’s Student Achievement Domain score to similar campuses
- Closing the Gaps Domain: Focuses on performance of student groups
The highest of the scaled scores earned in Student Achievement, School Progress Part A: Academic Growth, and School Progress Part B: Relative Performance will contribute 70 percent of the overall campus/district rating, while the scaled score earned on Closing the Gaps will contribute 30 percent. In 2018, for each of the four areas and overall, campuses will receive ratings of Met Standard or Improvement Required, and districts will receive grades of A-F. Starting in 2019, campuses and districts will both receive grades of A-F in each of the four areas, and overall.
