TCAP scores released for 2013

Results of the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program tests Colorado students took this spring were released at noon Wednesday.

Out of 27 grade-level subject tests, School District 51 students scored above the state average for grade-level proficiency in seven categories and tied with the state in sixth-grade reading. TCAP, which replaced Colorado State Assessment Program tests two years ago, tests third- though 10th-graders statewide in math, writing and reading and tests fifth-, eighth-, and 10th-graders in science.

The highest marks in District 51 on this year’s TCAP tests were achieved by New Emerson, which had 100 percent of third-graders score grade-level proficient or better in reading and math and 100 percent of fourth-graders score proficient or better in math; and Independence Academy, whose third-graders all scored proficient or better in math. The lowest proficiency score was 9.4 percent writing proficiency among third-graders at Mesa Valley Vision School.

In a measure of year-over-year individual improvement in test scores, District 51 students tracked even with the statewide average of growth in reading and grew slightly more year-over-year than the state average in writing and math.
