Third-grade TCAP reading scores for 2013 released
Seventy-four percent of District 51 third-graders scored at or above grade level on this year’s Transitional Colorado Assessment Program reading tests, outpacing the state average of proficient readers in third-grade by one percentage point.
Results of third-grade TCAP reading scores were released today by the Colorado Department of Education. Third-graders statewide take the standardized reading test in February so that teachers can receive scores before the end of the school year and form a reading improvement plan for students who need one. All other TCAP tests for third- through 10th-graders are taken in March or April and results are typically released in early August.
This year’s top-performing schools in District 51 for third-grade TCAP reading are New Emerson (100 percent proficient or advanced), Independence Academy (95 percent proficient or advanced) and Scenic ELementary (93 percent proficient or advanced).
At the bottom are Chipeta Elementary (58.1 percent proficient or advanced), Mesa Valley Vision Home and Community Program (59.4 percent proficient or advanced), and Rocky Mountain Elementary (64 percent proficient or advanced).
