TAKS–M TPM reporting changes in 2010–2011
For 2010–2011, reporting of the Texas Projection Measure (TPM) for TAKS–M will change from the reporting in 2009–2010 in the following ways:
- For individual-level reporting (i.e., Confidential Student Report and Confidential Student Report–Texas Projection Measure [online]), the TPM projections for TAKS–M will be reported only at grade 10.
- The Texas Projection Measure summary reports will be created and printed only for grade 10.
These reporting changes were made because students in grades 3–8 in 2011 will transition to the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) program in 2012. Beginning in 2011–2012, STAAR Modified assessments will replace TAKS–M assessments at grades 3–9. Students currently in grades 3–8 who receive a projection for TAKS–M will not be able to compare their 2011 TAKS–M projections to future TAKS–M scores and the TAKS–M performance standards. Projected scores based on the TAKS–M scoring system cannot be compared with the STAAR Modified performance standards. However, TAKS–M assessments will continue to be administered in subsequent years for students in grades 10 and 11. Therefore, students currently in grade 10 who receive a projection for TAKS–M will be able to compare their 2011 TAKS–M projections to their TAKS–M scores and the TAKS–M performance standards in 2012.
The student data files will include the TAKS–M TPM information (the projected TAKS–M TPM scores and the TAKS–M TPM indicators that specify whether or not a student is projected to meet the standard or achieve commended performance in the projection grade [grades 5, 8, or 11] and subject) for students in grades 3, 4, 6, 7, and 10. The TPM calculator will be available for all of these students as well.
In 2011, the decision has been made that TPM will NOT be used in either state or federal accountability systems. For more information about 2011 state and federal accountability decisions, please refer to 2011 Accountability Rating System
