    2023 Texas Accountability System

    The Texas accountability system evaluates performance according to three domains:

    • Domain 1: Student Achievement
      • Evaluates performance across all subjects for all students on both general and alternate assessments; College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators; and graduation rates.
    • Domain 2: School Progress
      • Measures outcomes in two areas: the number of students that grew, or were accelerated, at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and the achievement of all students relative to campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.
    • Domain 3: Closing the Gaps
      • Uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic background, and other factors. The indicators included in this domain, as well as the domain's construction, align the state accountability system with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

    2023 Results Driven Accountability (RDA)

    The RDA system is a data-driven framework developed and implemented annually for local educational agencies (LEAs) by the Division of Review and Support in coordination with other departments within the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  This system is used by the TEA as one part of its annual evaluation of LEA performance and program effectiveness. It is worth noting that the RDA Chapter 12 was previously a standalone RDA Manual, formerly called Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS).
