Accountability Research

 

The Accountability Research Unit in the Division of Research and Analysis is responsible for research and policy analysis on state and federal accountability measures, education policy research, development of public school data and information systems, and reports on educational progress in Texas public schools. The unit also manages AskTED—the web-based application that provides school district and campus organization and contact information—and provides administrative support to a Texas Education Agency committee responsible for reviewing agency data collections.

The unit develops indicators and measures for high school completion, graduation, dropouts, grade-level retention, college entrance examinations (SAT and ACT), and advanced courses (Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate). The measures are used in the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS), state and federal accountability, performance-based monitoring, and numerous state and federal reports. Moreover, the unit publishes annual reports and searchable databases on the measures. The unit also coordinates and publishes an annual report on enrollment trends, the Comprehensive Annual Report to the Texas Legislature on Texas Public Schools, and a number of special reports on education in Texas.
