Results Driven Accountability (RDA)

Formerly Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS)

The Results Driven Accountability Framework (RDA)

The RDA is a local education agency (LEA) level, data-driven framework developed and implemented annually by the Department of Review and Support in coordination with other departments within the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  The 2020 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. 

 

Updates to the RDA Manual

The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §97.1005 would update the current rule by updating the 2020 RDA Manual and replace it with the 2021 RDA Manual.
 
 
Public hearings on the proposal are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on July 7th and 8th, 2021.
 
The public may participate virtually by registering in advance for the meeting(s) by clicking the registration links below.
 
Registrants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
 
Parties interested in testifying must pre-register online prior to 1:00 pm on the date of the applicable hearing and are encouraged to also send written testimony to spedrule@tea.texas.gov. The hearing(s) will conclude once all who have registered have been given the opportunity to comment.

Planning for the Future:

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
