2011-12 Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports

The 2011-12 Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports for your district and schools are available as of November 15, 2012 at the Texas Education Agency Security Environment (TEASE) website.

In a letter to superintendents the following changes to the AEIS reports were communicated:

What’s New:

*STAAR: No STAAR results are shown on the 2011-12 AEIS reports, since performance standards have not been determined yet for the grades 3–8 STAAR assessments. Results of the spring and summer 2012 STAAR EOC assessments at the state, region, district, and campus levels can be accessed online at http://www.texasassessment.com.

*TAKS – Indicators that change:

 *TAKS by grade: Performance is shown only for grades 10 & 11.

 *TAKS (Sum of All Grades Tested): shown for grades 10 & 11 only.

*TAKS Commended Performance: shown for grades 10 & 11 only.

*TAKS-M: Results on the TAKS-M assessments are included in the TAKS indicators and also shown separately, for grades 10 & 11 only.

 *TAKS-Alt: The TAKS-Alt was not available for the 2012 TAKS administration.

 *No Prior Year: Only one year of data (spring 2012) is shown.

*TAKS Participation: No participation report is available for 2011-12.

*Progress of Prior Year TAKS Failers: Performance is shown only for grades 10 & 11.

 *TAKS Performance of Mobile Students (state report only): Performance is shown only for grades 10 & 11.

*TAKS – Indicators that do not change:

*TAKS Exit-Level Cumulative Pass Rate.

*ELL Progress Measure: This indicator is not available for the 2011-12 AEIS reports.

*Annual Dropout Rate: Only one year of data is shown for this indicator, because dropout rates for 2010-11 are not comparable to those reported for 2009-10.

*4-Year Completion Rate (Gr. 9-12): This indicator is shown for the class of 2011 only, with new exclusions required under Texas Education Code applied to the district and campus rates only. Note that the district and campus reports show “N/A” for the state and region columns. The required exclusions are not part of the methodology used to calculate state and region 4-year completion rates, therefore, the state and region reports show the 4-year completion rate without the exclusions applied.

*Non-Educationally Disadvantaged: This is a new item on the AEIS reports. It is the complementary count and percent to Economically Disadvantaged. That is, it is defined as those not eligible to participate in free or reduced-price lunch or to receive any other public assistance.

*Instructional Staff Percent: This item, which has previously been available on the School Report Cards has been added to the campus reports. It is only reported at the district level, so the campus column is blank.

*Instructional Expenditure Ratio: This item, which has previously been available on the School Report Cards has been added to the campus reports. It is only reported at the district level, so the campus column is blank.

*AEIS Download Data: The data downloads will be available by late November on the public site. Variables have been added to the download:

*At-Risk: The campus-level performance of students who are at-risk of dropping out of school can be downloaded, for all indicators.

*Mobility: District-level mobility has been added to the district download. Note that this indicator is still calculated at the campus level.

*Campus Comparison Groups: While there is no Comparable Improvement to report for 2011-12, the campus comparison groups will be available later, on the public site. Districts are not required to include those with the publication and dissemination of the AEIS reports.

*School Report Card (SRC): Due to the lack of state assessment results for most grades and no accountability information, there will be no School Report Card for 2011-12. Schools will not be required to send reports home with the students.
