The Texas Student Data System (TSDS), a major initiative by the Texas Education Agency, is a statewide system that improves the quality of data collection, management, and reporting in Texas education. TSDS modernizes the PEIMS data collection process and puts real‐ time student performance data in the hands of educators to improve student achievement.
The TSDS Core Collection submissions is an effort to consolidate the collection of 200+ separate data collection systems at the agency under TSDS. The desired result is to standardize the submission process and reduce redundancy between data collections. Each year, TEA will add additional Core Collection submissions as well as the four standard PEIMS collection submissions.
