TEA has released a bulletin concerning Performance Reporting updates. The following is a compilation of the highlights from that bulletin.

What’s New in Performance Reporting

A–F Accountability

Upcoming PEIMS Snapshot: October 27, 2023

Only assessment results for those students enrolled in the same campus on both the snapshot date (the last Friday in October) and the testing date are used to determine campus performance. See the PEIMS Data Submission Timelines for further details.


What resources does Performance Reporting have available pertaining to CCMR Outcomes bonuses?

Does the Final 2021 CCMR Outcomes Bonus use an enrollment average?

Are there timelines for the CCMR Outcomes Bonus, and when will the Preliminary 2022 Outcomes Bonus be available?

Assessment Scoring and Reporting

Update Student Eligibility

Districts should ensure that all students eligible for STAAR EOC assessments have been added to TIDE by October 5, 2023. All eligible students must be registered in TIDE for retester flags to be set. Students participating in the December 2023 STAAR administration must have the December EOC Eligibility field set to “Yes” in TIDE. Student eligibility must be added by the deadline indicated on the Calendar of Events so that the correct number of test administrator manuals are shipped to districts.

Paper by Request

District testing personnel may provide a paper administration of STAAR to any student whose parent, guardian, or teacher in the applicable subject area requests a paper version. The only criterion is to have submitted the request to the district by September 15, 2023. If a student requires a paper version of the assessment with embedded supports, large print, or braille, refer to the Special Administration of an Assessment page in the Coordinator Resources.

Indicate Students Eligible for Paper Administration

If a student is eligible for a special paper administration, the Special Ed Indicator Code/Section 504 Indicator Code must be set to “Yes” in TIDE. District personnel must also set the student’s Test Mode to “Paper” and make the appropriate Paper Test Format selection. The deadline to submit these settings was October 5, 2023.

Out-of-School and Out-of-District Test Site Registration

The window for districts to register each participating OOS and OOD test site for the December STAAR administration opens on September 25, 2023. Districts must register by October 6, 2023, using the STAAR Out-of-School and Out-of-District Test Site Registration Form.

Secure Browser Update

District personnel must update desktop secure browsers to version 16 and the iPad OS secure browser to version 9 for the new school year no later than October 1, 2023. The Authoring System Training Module is now available in the LMS. This training module is designed to help users create tests and items in the authoring system.
