The qualifying scores are scale scores of 2200 on their TAKS mathematics and English language arts with a written composition score of 3 or higher on the writing component. This indicator shows the percent of students who achieved this level of proficiency by subject (English language arts and mathematics) for 2011 and 2010.

Note also:This indicator is subject to accountability subset rules. Performance is disaggregated according to the new definitions for race and ethnicity for both current year (2011) and prior year (2010). TAKS-M and TAKS-Alt performance is not included. THECBs standard of college readiness on the exit-level TAKS does not apply to these alternate assessments because students are not required to pass the TAKS-M or TAKS-Alt in order to graduate.

Texas Education AgencyAdvanced Course EnrollmentData Source: PEIMS This indicator is based on a count of students who complete and receive credit for at least one advanced course in grades 9-12. Advanced courses include dual enrollment courses.

Texas Education AgencyGraduation CertificateData Source: PEIMS RHP/DAP: This indicator shows the percent of graduates who were reported as having satisfied the course requirements for the Texas State Board of Education Recommended High School Program or Distinguished Achievement Program. It is calculated as follows: number of graduates reported with graduation codes for Recommended High School Program or Distinguished Achievement Programdivided by number of graduates. 20072008200920102011AveState Min.17.8914.6814.2114.1916.8315.56State Rec.67.4969.9570.6570.7867.8569.344State DAP10.9811.8212.0712.2412.5511.932State IEP3.653.553.072.792.773.166ESC VII Min.25.1821.4218.7621.4921.9521.76ESC VII Reco.60.3962.6465.9463.162.2562.864ESC VII DAP11.1611.7812.0813.513.0412.312ESC VII IEP3.

This shows the percent of examinees who scored at or above the criterion score on either test (1110 on the SAT critical reading and mathematics sections combined, or 24 on the ACT composite)Average Score. This shows the average score for the SAT critical reading and mathematics combined and the average score for the ACT composite, calculated as follows: total score (mathematics plus critical reading) for all students who took the SAT divided bynumber of students who took the SAT and total composite score for all students who took the ACT divided bynumber of students who took the ACT.Texas Education AgencyEnrollment Higher EducationData Source: THECB 20042005200620072008State 4 yr20.4920.7321.4521.5820.44State 2yr31.0431.3231.331.6133.91State51.5352.0552.7553.1954.35Region 4yr12.9213.6314.3914.3412.79Region 2 yr38.6937.5837.4238.0540.05Region51.5151.2151.8152.3952.84Middle to LargeTotal Grad-2.02.0-2.492.5-2.993.0-3.49>3.5Unk4 Yr Public Univ.88161116212402 Yr Pub.

Data Source: THECB Student performance in postsecondary institutions during the first year enrolled after graduation from high school. Student performance is measured by the Grade Point Average (GPA) earned by 2009-2010 high school graduates who attended public four-year and two-year higher education in FY 2011.

For each student, the grade points and college-level semester credit hours earned by a student in fall 2010, spring 2011, and summer 2011 are added together and averaged to determine the GPA. These GPAs are accumulated in a range of five categories from < 2.0 to > 3.5. If a GPA could not be calculated for some reason, that student is placed in the Unknown column.

GPA data is only available for students attending public higher education institutions in Texas. If a high school has fewer than five students attending four-year or two-year public higher education institutions, the number of students is shown but no GPA breakout is given. If a student attended both a four-year and a two-year institution in FY 2011, the students GPA is shown in the type of institution where the most semester credit hours were earned.Random Selection of Large, Middle, and Small High Schools in Region VIITHECBResourcesTexas Education Agency.
