State announces district achievement results



“Our results show that we are continuing to make solid, steady academic progress, and we are grateful to our teachers, students, parents, and staff for their tremendous focus on academic achievement.”
Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent, Knox County Schools
The State of Tennessee has released limited district academic achievement results for the 2011-12 school year. Released data includes aggregate grade 3-8 scores on the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) and End of Course (EOC) exams for school systems across the state.

Highlights from the 2011-2012 data for the Knox County Schools include:

• Gains in overall proficiency rates for all four tested subject areas on the TCAP for grades 3-8 (reading/language arts, math, science, social studies)

• Gains in proficiency in 7 of 10 of the achievement measures (4 TCAP subjects for grades 3-8 and 6 EOCs) publicly released today

• A slight regression in the U.S. History EOC, where KCS’s proficiency rate was over 95 percent*

• While gains were made in Algebra I and English I EOCs, there were slight declines in Algebra II and English II

• Preliminary data indicate an increase in proficiency in 3rd grade reading/language arts from 47.8 percent to 51.1 percent
“Our results show that we are continuing to make solid, steady academic progress, and we are grateful to our teachers, students, parents, and staff for their tremendous focus on academic achievement,” said Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent of the Knox County Schools.
  
“There is much to be proud of in our 2011-12 academic achievement results, and a few areas to focus some additional attention. We will use these diagnostic data to inform our educational and instructional decisions in order to continuously improve, and achieve our ambitious academic goal of Excellence for All Children.”

District TCAP results come on the heels of Tennessee Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman’s recent announcement of statewide TCAP results, which showed the largest growth in TCAP history.

*Per State Board of Education policy, Advanced Placement (AP) students are no longer permitted to take the exam, which could have had an impact on results in this area

NASHVILLE (July 26, 2012)- The Tennessee Department of Education announced today that student performance on the 2012 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program improved significantly in school districts across the state.

Nearly all of the state's 136 districts saw proficiency levels increase, and two-thirds improved in every subject of the 3-8 TCAP Achievement tests.

The district-by-district results follow unprecedented gains on the statewide level, where student scores saw the largest growth in TCAP history as Tennessee continued to implement its First to the Top Education reforms.

"The widespread improvements show that efforts to raise student outcomes are working in many districts," said Education Commission Kevin Huffman. "Our students, teachers and administrators worked incredibly hard, and we are gratified that so many districts were able to significantly grow results."

District proficiency levels reveal major improvements in math skills. More than 50 districts saw double-digit growth over last year in Algebra I, with some reporting gains greater than 30 percentage points. Additionally, 23 districts saw double-digit growth in grades 3-8 math.

District-by-district TCAP results can be accessed on the education department website, where they are posted in sortable spreadsheets. Statewide TCAP results, released last month, are also on the site.
