The Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) is an annual report which pulls together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas collected by the Texas Education Agency's Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS). Additionally, testing contractors provide the agency with scores on standardized tests such as TAKS, SAT, ACT, and others. Other state agencies provide information such as tax rates and property values.
