Why This Indicator Matters

Definition and Source



Number and percentage of 3rd through 8th grade students who passed the reading component of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) examination who were classified as economically disadvantaged or not economically disadvantaged by the Texas Education Agency.  The percentages for economically disadvantaged and non-economically disadvantaged are calculated separately (e.g., of the economically disadvantaged students who took the test, X% passed). Thus, you should NOT add across the two groups to calculate a total passing percentage. Please see our overall STAAR data for that number. 

Passing rates are based on Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance standards at the final Recommended phase-in.

"LNE" = Low Number Event. A LNE occurs when the number of children is masked by the reporting agency because it is so low that revealing the number could potentially identify a specific child.

"NA" = Not Applicable. No students attending school in this county took the exam.
