State accountability ratings are established on a framework of three domains. These domains are used to evaluate the performance of each public campus and district in the state. The framework includes indicators used to calculate a score for each domain and allows a comprehensive assessment of campus and district effectiveness.
Accountability ratings are based on achieving an established target for each
Domain 1: Student Achievement: provides a snapshot of performance across subjects.
Domain 2: School Progress: measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
Domain 3: Closing Performance Gaps: tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.
A-F letter grades are used to rate the overall performance of districts and campuses.

In addition, the School Report Cards (SRC), produced annually for each Texas public school campus, contain some information from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), as well as some information from the Accountability Rating System for Texas Public Schools and Districts.
