Data Validation Monitoring - Student Assessment Staging due June 5
For the 2014-2015 year, intervention staging for DVM-SA was determined by which indicators the district triggered and the number of indicators the district triggered. Staging will be posted Friday, April 10, 2015, in the Intervention, Stage, and Activity Manager (ISAM) application in TEASE. Through ISAM, a district can determine which stage of intervention has been assigned for DVM-SA. All districts that triggered any DVM-SA indicator have been assigned an intervention stage.
Districts assigned to Stage 1 will complete the DVM-SA workbook for the indicator triggered and develop a DVM-SA corrective action plan (DVM-SA CAP) to address any student assessment coding or documentation discrepancies and/or noncompliance. Completion due date is June 5, 2015. Districts in Stage 1 will maintain the DVM-SA workbook, DVM-SA CAP, and supporting documentation locally. These districts will submit intervention and supporting documentation only upon request of the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
Districts assigned to Stage 2 or 3 will complete the DVM-SA workbook for the indicator(s) triggered and develop a DVM-SA CAP to address any student assessment coding or documentation discrepancies and/or noncompliance. The due date for completion and submission to TEA is June 5, 2015. Further, districts assigned to Stage 3 will engage in follow-up support activities to help ensure the successful implementation of corrective actions and student assessment data submission. Specific follow-up activities will be determined after the review of the submitted DVM-SA workbook(s) and DVM-SA CAP.
Additionally, districts assigned to Stage 2 or 3 will need to designate a DVM-SA program contact in ISAM. Step-by-step instructions for completing this task will be located under Intervention Guidance and Resources on the DVM-SA page of the TEA website.
Data validation interventions are coordinated with performance interventions to the extent possible and tailored to data accuracy concerns. If a district staged for interventions in the DVM system also is identified for an on-site program effectiveness review in the PBM system, the on-site review will include a review of data quality and data reporting systems.
