HOW RATINGS ARE DETERMINED

The ratings are based on high school completion rates, dropout rates and passing rates on the state test, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). Increasing standards and the elimination of the Texas Projection Measure (TPM) resulted in fewer schools and districts earning an Exemplary accountability rating in 2011.

EXEMPLARY: 90% passing in each TAKS subject with a high school completion rate of 95%.
RECOGNIZED: 80% passing in each TAKS subject with a high school completion rate of 85%.
ACCEPTABLE: 70% passing in reading, writing and social studies; 65% in math and 60% in sciencewith a high school completion rate of 75%.

This is the last year of the TAKS-based accountability system, and there are a number of changes that have increased its impacted ratings in preparation for the new rating system that will begin in 2013, according to the Texas Education Agency.
