TCAP Scores on the Rise
The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program or TCAP scores were announced by Gov. Bill Haslam and TN Education Commissioner Kevin Huffmann during a press conference in Nashville Tuesday afternoon. The scores show a slight increase in scores in both math and science for Tennessee students in the third through eighth grades. Nearly half of all elementary students made a proficient or advanced score in language arts as well. Though Haslam was pleased with the scores, he released a statement saying that Tennessee still had “considerable work to do to improve student outcomes and narrow the educational gaps that still exist within the state’s public school system.” (hra)
