Third-grade TCAP data released

Third-grade Transitional Colorado Assessment Program, or TCAP, reading scores released today by the Colorado Department of Education show District 51 again had a higher percentage than the state average of third-graders reading at or above grade-level proficiency in 2014, but proficiency levels both statewide and district-wide declined year-over-year.

Seventy-two percent of District 51 third-graders who took the TCAP reading test in February scored proficient or better on the test, compared to 71.5 percent statewide. In 2013, 74 percent of District 51 third-graders scored proficient or higher on the TCAP reading test and 72 percent of third-graders statewide scored at or above grade level in reading.

The third-grade TCAP reading test is given in late February each year, weeks before the rest of TCAP testing, so that third-grade teachers have time to create a reading plan before the end of the school year to help students who are not proficient catch up in their reading skills. TCAP results for other grades and subjects are scheduled to be released in late July or early August.
