Texas Education Agency

infoDefinitions

Note: In the 2015-2016 school year, Texas Education Agency (TEA) changed the criteria for students to be “college-ready” to include ACT/SAT/TSIA, which includes a mastery of algebra II. Then, in 2016-2017, TEA added a college prep class to the required criteria for a student to be considered “college-ready.” This changed from the criteria from earlier years, which is why this indicator is only trended from 2015.
