What is the School Progress Domain and how is it Calculated?

The School Progress Domain measures your campus progress in two areas: the number of students that academically grew by at least one year, and the achievement of all students with economically disadvantaged percentages.

If you’ve been an educator in Texas for the last two years, or you’re brand new to Texas, you’ve likely heard about the A-F Accountability system. It’s a rating system established by the Texas Education Agency that allows them to evaluate the academic performance of Texas public schools and assign a letter grade (A-F) to districts and campuses.

The calculations are broken into three areas: the student achievement domain, the school progress domain, and the closing the gaps domain. Each one is is measured, and each domain is ultimately given a letter grade

What’s included in the School Progress Domain

The School Progress Domain is designed to measure your campus progress in two areas: the number of students that academically grew by at least one year, and the achievement of all students with economically disadvantaged percentages.

Part A: Academic Growth

Credit is awarded to your campus or district for students who improve or maintain performance year over year as measured by STAAR progress measures and performance levels on STAAR Reading and mathematics.

Part B: Relative Performance

Campuses are evaluated by the overall performance on STAAR (for elementary and middle school) or by the average of the STAAR Performance and CCMR component (for high schools and K-12 campuses) compared to campuses with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students

How is this domain scored?  

TEA takes the better of Part A: Academic Growth or Part B: Relative Performance as the Domain 2: School Progress score.”
