Performance Reporting compiles data to develop and report meaningful accountability ratings to help Texas public schools meet the educational needs of all students. As part of administering the state’s public-school accountability system, the division publishes assessment reporting and accountability data in several different formats, for different audiences, and for different purposes.
The division also provides guidance and resources to help school administrators, teachers, parents, and the general public understand and benefit from the state’s accountability system.
Texas provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts, charters and schools. The ratings are based on performance on state standardized tests; graduation rates; and college, career, and military readiness outcomes. The ratings examine student achievement, school progress, and whether districts and campuses are closing achievement gaps among various student groups.
