STAAR data files show values of 0, 1, or 2 for progress. Are these point values used to calculate School Progress, Part A: Academic Growth? Where can I find my 0.5 point awarded for students who maintained performance?
In the STAAR data files, a 0 indicates Limited progress, a 1 indicates Expected progress, and a 2 indicates Accelerated progress. For Academic Growth, one point is awarded for Expected or Accelerated progress. For additional information, including when 0.5 point is awarded, see the matrices in Chapter 3 of the 2022 Accountability Manual.
