TEA requirements for student growth performance standards are shown in the table below. In order to be Recognized, 55% of all students on the teachers roll for their content area must meet the performance standards. In order to receive the Exemplary or Master designation, a teacher must have 60% of their students having met or exceeded the growth standards. Forty percent of the points available for designation come from the student growth measure.
The teacher committee developed the rubric and assessments used to measure student growth over time. The assessment instruments for each grade/course will be used for phase 1 of the plan.
