Some table references in the 2007 Accountability Manual have been found to be incorrect.  Below are the locations of the errors and the corrected text. You may also download the corrected pages (PDF download) to insert in your manual.

Page 15, last paragraph:

Examples of how the accountability subset criteria are applied are provided in the following table. Note that these apply to both SDAA II and TAKS performance results. For more information, see Tables 32, 33, and 34 in Appendix D – Data Sources.

Page 17, within table:

Grades 3 and 5 Reading; Grade 5 Mathematics (Student Success Initiative)
(See Tables 32 and 33 in Appendix D – Data Sources for further information.)

Page 155, last 2 paragraphs:

The following tables provide comparisons of the state and federal systems. Table 26 contains a side-by-side comparison of the indicators, restrictions, requirements, and source data for both systems.

Table 27 is a comparison by grade level. With this table, a campus can compare the use of various indicators by grade. For example, a grade 3-5 campus is evaluated in both the state and federal systems on TAKS reading, mathematics, and SDAA II reading, mathematics, although AYP evaluates more student groups for each of these indicators. In a grade 3-5 campus, its AYP status also depends on attendance and participation indicators, while its state rating includes TAKS writing and science results.

Page 161, 3rd paragraph:

The primary sources for all data used in the state accountability system are the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) data collection, the various assessment companies, and the General Educational Development (GED) data file. Tables 28, 29, and 30 describe these data sources in detail. The terms provided in these tables are referenced within the indicator discussion.

Page 167, top of page:

Table 31. Students who leave due to reasons identified with an asterisk are not counted as dropouts. Only students reported with leaver code 98 are defined as dropouts.

Page 172, near bottom of page:

    • Mobility between administrations of the TAKS for Student Success Initiative presents a special challenge for excluding mobile students. Tables 32, 33, and 34 below show different scenarios for inclusion and exclusion of mobile students in the campus accountability subset.
