The dashboard includes the four indexes that are the basis for the state's accountability system and gives a summary of state, district, and school performance. The dashboard makes it possible to find clear clear and concise accountability information and demographics for an individual school, an entire school district, or the state as a whole and also allows users to compare performance between districts or schools.
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the perfromance 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 TAPRs were previously known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) Reports.
School Report Cards are produced annually for each Texas public school campus and contain information from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) as well as some information from the Accountability Rating System for Texas Public Schools and Districts.
Each year a new Definitions
document is produced for the School Report Card specific to that year. (English
Federal Report Cards for the state, the district, and each of the district's campuses are now available on the Texas Education Agency's website.
