Total number of students that tested within that subpopulation (STAAR and STAAR ALT) that had a reading or math progress measure of 2 in the assessment file.

Total Meets or Exceeds

Total of Progress Measure 1 (Expected) + Progress Measure 2 (Accelerated)
This value is a unique (non-duplicated) student count. Some students may be in both the expected and the accelerated counts for different subjects, but will show up in this total only one time.
