What’s New in Performance Reporting
The College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) FAQs
The (CCMR) Tracker will be released in two stages through TEA Login (TEAL) Accountability . Please note that the data in these reports are confidential. Accelerated Testers (TEAL)
1. Why are my 2022 graduates not included in the CCMR tracker that was released on March 31st?
The CCMR Tracker provides districts with an early preview of CCMR status for students who are in grades 9–12 during the current school year (2022–23). While the Tracker contains students who were in grades 9–12 on the 2022–23 PEIMS snapshot, the 2023 version does not contain results from school year 2022–23 as those data have yet to be reported.
2022 graduates and their associated CCMR data will be released in the CCMR Verifier later this spring.
2. We noticed that quite a few of our students are incorrectly coded in the CCMR report recently released. I understand that when the CCMR Verifier is available later this spring we will be able to rectify the information. Is there anything else I can do at this point to acknowledge the error?
No, the CCMR Tracker is for informational purposes. When the CCMR Verifier is open, you will be able to submit corrections for non-PEIMS indicators for your 2022 graduates during that window.
Accelerated Testers FAQs
The Final 2023 Accelerated Testers Student Listings and explanatory materials were released March 31 in the TEA Login (TEAL) Accountability application. Please note that the data in these reports are confidential.
1. Is the accelerated student required to take the ACT/SAT only during grades 9-12? If they took it in 8th grade, would it count?
The student would need to take the ACT/SAT in grades 9-12. A result before grade 9 will not be included.
2. Are accelerated testers that do not test ACT/SAT or ACT, calculated into accountability as failures?
Accelerated testers that do not test ACT/SAT are not included in Student Achievement or School Progress calculations as only scored tests are considered. These students would be included as non-participants in the participation calculations in Closing the Gaps. Please see Inclusion of SAT/ACT Results for Accelerated Testers in 2023 Accountability (texas.gov) which is located on the resource page Performance Reporting Resources | Texas Education Agency.
Assessment Scoring and Reporting
Spring 2023 STAAR Administration
Paper Test Materials – Initial shipments of State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) paper test materials will arrive this week. District testing personnel may order any additional paper test materials and additional return labels through May 5, 2023. To place an additional order, select the STAAR, Paper Materials Management options in the Administration Task drop-down menu in Texas drop-down menu in Tes Information Distribution Engine (TIDE).
Sign Language – Test administrators who are providing American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation during an online assessment can view a student’s test using a second laptop or monitor connected via a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cord. The test administrator can then view the test content on their screen and provide ASL for eligible test material. For additional information about this process, refer to the Testing with ASL Interpretation page within the District and Campus Coordinator Resources. For further support in facilitating in person signing using alternative devices, district testing coordinators should contact
Texas Testing Support one week prior to test administation.
Texas Though-Year Assessment Pilot Application
The district-level application for the 2023–2024 Texas Through-year Assessment Pilot (TTAP) is open and will close on 11:59 p.m. (CT) Friday, April 28, 2023. All Texas public school districts and open-enrollment charter schools are eligible to participate in TTAP. Space in TTAP is limited due to operational constraints. Priority will be given to districts that participated in TTAP during the 2022–2023 school year and to districts that are able to administer all four TTAP tests during the 2023–2024 school year.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will host two webinars to provide information to interested district personnel. To participate in one of these webinars, register using the links below:
