from 20 different entry-level, credit-bearing college courses. Analysis of the results showed the
CCRS to be highly aligned with entry-level college courses in Texas (Conley et al., 2010).
The state of Texas annually issued a report detailing the academic performance of its
students. The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) is an accountability report that
assessed academic performance for all campuses and school districts in the state of Texas. This
information continues to be generated annually by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). TEA
annually collects a broad range of information on over 1,200 districts (including charters), more
than 8,000 schools, 320,000+ educators, and over 4.7 million students (TEA, 2010).
Additionally, the TAPR report contained student participation rates and performance on national
standardized student assessments such as the SAT, the ACT and Advanced Placement Exams to
complete the annual TAPR reports.
The Texas state accountability system for public education was constructed on a
framework consisting of four performance indexes: student achievement, student progress,
closing performance gaps, and postsecondary readiness. Based on student performance, each
campus and school district earned an index score of 0-100 with annual target scores being set by
the Texas Commissioner of Education (TEA, 2016). Index Four determined a campus and
school district index score derived from how well their students performed on the mandated state
accountability assessment test known as the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness
Index Four of the TAPR emphasized how well elementary and middle school campuses
were preparing their students for the rigors of high school course work, and how well high
school campuses were preparing their students, ". . . for success in college, the workforce, job
training programs, or the military" (TEA, 2016, p. 26). For school districts and high school
