Waco ISD Benefits From New TAKS Projection Measure

When TAKS school ratings are released at the end of July, Waco ISD expects to have 3 schools rated Exemplary and 10 more rated Recognized. Read the full article from the Waco Tribune-Herald here.

The improved ratings are partly due to the new Texas Projection Measure which looks at students’ progress and determines whether or not they are likely to pass the TAKS in future years. If they are on a trajectory to pass in the future, the student is counted as passing on the current test even if they’re scores were not sufficient to pass.

The controversial change has helped many districts to improve school ratings. Critics claim that the measure produces inaccurate results since ratings are not adjusted based on whether or not students projected to pass in the future actually pass.
