(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Tennessee's students have shown significant improvement on the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP), according to a report released by the state's Department of Education on Thursday.
The department said the performance by students on the 2012 edition of the TCAP improved in school districts throughout Tennessee. Proficiency levels increased for "nearly all of the 136 districts," stated the report. Also, two-thirds of the districts showed improvement in every subject of the test, officials said.
"The widespread improvement shows that efforts to raise student outcomes are working in many districts," Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said in a statement. "Our students, teachers and administrators worked incredibly hard, and we are gratified that so many districts were able to significantly grow results."
