Data Validation and Reporting Compliance Overview
Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) staff designs a comprehensive PBM system to improve student performance and program effectiveness. The PBM system is a data-driven system reliant on data submitted by districts. Confirming the accuracy of data is a critical part of the process necessary to validate and safeguard the integrity of the overall PBM system. The PBM system includes annual data validation analyses that examine districts' leaver and dropout records, discipline data, and student assessment data. Additional data analyses, including random audits, are conducted as necessary to ensure the data submitted to the Texas Education Agency are accurate and reliable.
The Data Reporting Compliance Unit (DRCU) within TEA's Office of Information Technology Services Business Management Division works together with local education agencies to improve data submission and support multiple data-driven systems by examining the data submitted through the Texas Student Data System (TSDS) Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) as well as PBM data validation indicators against required data submission standards for compliance.
