What is the STAAR on-track measure?
The STAAR on-track measure provides information about whether a student is on track to be at or above the Meets Grade Level performance standard in a future target year. Whether a student is on track or not is measured by using a student’s gain score (the difference between the scale score a student achieved in the previous year and the scale score a student achieved in the current year). Individual students are then categorized as On Track or Not On Track toward the target year.
The STAAR on-track measure is not included in the accountability rating calculation.
