Research, Assessment, and Accountability


 State Accountability Ratings

State accountability ratings are based on a framework of three domains that are used to evaluate the performance of each public campus and district in the state. The framework includes a range of indicators to calculate a score for each domain and enables a thorough assessment of campus and district effectiveness.

Accountability ratings are based on achieving a target established for each performance domain.
Domain 1: Student Achievement: provides a snapshot of performance across subjects.
Domain 2: School Progress: measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
Domain 3: Closing Performance Gaps: tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.

A-F letter grades are used to rate the overall performance of districts and campuses .

2019 Accountability: For the second year in a row, Katy ISD achieved an overall rating of an A. 

Distinction Designations

Distinction designations are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement in specific areas. Campus distinctions are based on indicators of student performance in comparison to forty similar campuses.

 Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)

The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.

Texas Consolidated School Rating (TCSR) Report provides the following information for each Texas public school district and campus:

  • State academic accountability ratings and distinction designations
  • State financial accountability ratings reported in School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (School FIRST)
  • Locally-assigned Community and Student Engagement ratings and statutory compliance statuses

Access current TCSR reports.


Texas Performance Reporting System (TPRS)

The TPRS, which provides detailed performance results at the school, district, region, and state levels, expands on information previously released in the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) by presenting performance and participation results by student group. The TPRS also presents detailed results for several postsecondary readiness indicators, including the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), and reports results for AP/IB exams and the SAT/ACT by subject area.
