Preliminary 2022 Accelerated Testers Student Listings Now Available

Texas Education Agency Updates

To the Superintendent Addressed:

This correspondence is to notify you that the Preliminary 2022 Accelerated Testers Student Listings and explanatory materials are now available in the TEA Login (TEAL) Accountability application.  Please note that the data in these reports are confidential.

Accelerated testers are defined as students who complete a STAAR EOC at the Approaches Grade Level or above standard in Algebra I, English II, and/or Biology prior to grade 9. To fulfill federal testing requirements, these accelerated students must take a corresponding subject area SAT or ACT while in high school.

Accelerated testers are included on the Preliminary 2022 Accelerated Testers Student Listing if the student was reported as enrolled in grade 11 in 2020–21 PEIMS attendance files. Students are attributed to the district/campus at which they were reported in attendance for the final six weeks. The Preliminary 2022 Accelerated Testers Student Listings reflect which subject area the student is considered accelerated and if the student has a corresponding SAT or ACT on record. Results as of May 2021 (2020–21, 2019–20, and 2018–19 school years) are included. The 2022 accountability calculations will include results through May 2022, and the August 2022 STAAR student listings released in TEAL Accountability will include these additional results.

The Final 2022 Accelerated Testers Student Listing will be released in March 2022 and will be updated to reflect accelerated testers reported by each district as enrolled in grade 12 for the 2021–22 PEIMS snapshot. The students included on the final listing will be evaluated as accelerated testers for 2022 accountability reports.
