Notes and Additional Guidance
State assessments (discipline-specific/TCAP): Includes: TCAP Achievement, End of Course Tests, TCAP ELSA (K-12 ELL), TCAP Writing (Grades 5, 8, 11), TCAP Constructed Response (Grades 3 and 7), TCAP Alt (SpEd), and TCAP MAAS (SpEd) “Off the shelf” tests: Pre K-12 diagnostic or achievement/attainment assessments commonly used throughout the state and/or nationally. During the 2011-2012 school year, district and teacher created measures will not be acceptable; however, in upcoming years a process for submitting district created assessments for use will be available. Acceptable measures should assess the intended curriculum content and should be generally consistent in scoring and administration (SAT 10, Dibels, MAP, DRA, etc.). Postsecondary matriculation/persistence/placement as determined by the TDOE and THEC: This measure looks at student success multiple years removed from high school enrollment. It is only appropriate for educators and principals who have been at the same high school for at least three years. Participation in advanced coursework: School level calculated secondary rates (e.g. Honors, AP, IB, NIC, college/high school dual enrollment and dual credit) according to SBE uniform grading policy. 9 grade Promotion and Retention Rate: School level calculated rates. This measure is only appropriate for educators with at least one year at the same school, as promotion and retention rates are lagging measures. NOTE: Per State Board policy teachers and principals will have the option to choose their growth data for the 15% component if they score a 3, 4, or 5.
