Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR)
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the AEIS (Academic Excellence Indicator System) reports, pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the 2017 state accountability ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters in August of 2017, as well as more than 8,700 campuses statewide. The ratings reveal that approximately 95.3 percent of school districts and charters across Texas have achieved the rating of Met Standard.
Districts, campuses, and charters receive one of three ratings under the accountability system: Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard, or Improvement Required.
The 2017 ratings are based on a system that uses a range of indicators to provide greater detail about the performance of a district or charter and individual campuses throughout the state. The performance index framework includes four areas:
Student Achievement - Provides a snapshot of performance across all subjects
Student Progress - Measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group
Closing Performance Gaps - Emphasizes the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups
Postsecondary Readiness - Emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs or the military
In order to earn a rating of Met Standard or Met Alternative Standard, a campus or district must meet the target on either Index 1 or Index 2 plus meet the targets on Index 3 and Index 4. For the 2016-2017 school year, the number of districts achieving a rating of Met Standard or Met Alternative Standard stayed relatively stable to the previous years.
