Performance-Based Monitoring - Data Validation 


The Division of Performance-Based Monitoring is also responsible for developing and reporting on a variety of data validation indicators, including indicators to examine leaver/dropout records, discipline data, and student assessment data.

Data Validation Monitoring Leavers

Texas Education Agency (TEA) monitoring and intervention activities have been designed to focus on a data-driven and performance-based system that will take place in a continuous improvement model. Intervention activities in the system reflect an emphasis on data integrity, data analysis, increased student performance and improved program effectiveness. The system for TEA monitoring is referenced as the Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) system.

The TEA has conducted an initial review of leaver data submitted by local education agencies (LEAs) through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) and has provided the results of this review in the 2012 Data Validation Report: Leaver Records. The results of the leaver data review have been used to determine stages of intervention for the monitoring of student leaver data.

The Data Validation Monitoring (DVM) system reflects the use of graduated interventions based on an analysis of local education agency (LEA) data reports as evidenced by the 2012 Leaver Records Data Validation Indicators. Results on each data validation indicator, patterns across indicators, longitudinal data analyses, and staging determinations across PBM program areas, including on-site visit schedules, were examined to determine appropriate levels of intervention.

Additional information related to data validation interventions also is available on the Program Monitoring and Interventions website under the Data Validation Monitoring link in the left column at: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/pmi. Resources include a Framework for PBM Data Validation and a Completion and Submittal Matrix for the implementation of DVM interventions.


Improvement Plan/Corrective Action Plan

The core component of virtually all intervention stages is the improvement plan and Corrective Action Plan (CAP), if applicable. The improvement plan/CAP is a comprehensive document developed by a team of LEA and community representatives, that:
§ prioritizes activities to improve student performance, program effectiveness, and/or data accuracy;
§ describes desired results and goals;
§ identifies how progress will be measured;
§ determines activities that will be implemented to reach desired results/goals;
§ identifies resources that are needed;
§ establishes timelines for achieving desired results/goals;
§ includes strategies/alternatives in the event initial activities are not as effective as anticipated; and
§ can be integrated as appropriate into other local improvement planning processes.

The improvement plan/CAP addresses the strategies and actions that will be taken to correct all areas of noncompliance with statute or regulations identified through monitoring and intervention activities.
Intervention Activities

The stages of intervention for leaver DVM will be implemented by the Division of Program Monitoring and Interventions.

Stage 1, 2, 3, and 4 Intervention: Focused Data Analysis, Student Level Data Review, and Improvement Plan/Corrective Action Plan. The district will conduct a data analysis of certain leaver / dropout data validation indicators triggered by the PBM system and provided to the district in the 2012 Data Validation Report: Leaver Records. If concerns related to the accuracy of data reported through PEIMS are verified, the district is required to address correction of the inaccuracies in the improvement plan/CAP. The purpose of the focused data analysis is to gather, disaggregate, and review student leaver data, documentation, and coding to determine possible causes for anomalous leaver data. The districts are required to complete a student-by-student leaver data review if applicable to the indicator(s) triggering the review.
