How does TEA match Texas Success Initiative assessment (TSIA) results to students?
Districts no not report TSIA results to the agency. The College Board provides the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) with TSIA results of all Texas students. The TSIA results received from THECB are matched to annual graduates and non-graduating 12th graders from TSDS PEIMS. The results are matched to students using an algorithm which includes TSDS Unique ID, SSN, local ID, and a combination of first name, middle name, last name, and DOB.
