Results Driven Accountability (RDA)

Formerly Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS)

Transitioning to RDA in 2019-2020

The Results Driven Accountability System (RDA)

The RDA is a local education agency (LEA) level, data-driven monitoring system developed and implemented annually by the Division of Review and Support in coordination with other departments within the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  The 2019 RDA Manual is intended to serve as a comprehensive technical resource used by the TEA as one part of its annual evaluation of LEAs’ performance and program effectiveness. 

Planning for the Future: 2020 and Beyond 

Ongoing implementation of the RDA will include the addition of new indicators, revision of current indicators, and deletion of indicators that are no longer necessary. Factors independent from the RDA itself are also likely to have an impact on the future versions of RDA. These factors include the following:

  • legislatively required changes to the statewide assessment program, STAAR;
  • changes resulting from reauthorizations of federal statutes, including the Elementary and Secondary Education Act;
  • results of any state or federal reviews, guidance, and regulations;
  • changes to data collection definitions and processes; and
  • legislation from a regular or special legislative session
