Data Analysis

Data alone carries no meaning and must be interpreted to highlight information and reveal important factual insights about the strengths and needs of the system. Data analysis and review of student level data conducted by the intervention team [Texas Education Code (TEC) §39.106 (a) and 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §97.1071] is designed to identify factors contributing to low performance and ineffectiveness of program areas. Data analysis informs the needs assessment and leads to a targeted improvement plan. District, campus, feeder pattern and student level data are all considered during data analysis (TEC §39.106(b)) and are critical to any improvement effort.
