TNReady results released; new baselines set for high school students
Tennessee Department of Education says that 228,287 high school students took at least one of the End of Course exams.
TNReady testing results are here and the state's Education Commissioner Candice McQueen says that while students are learning and growing, they still have a long way to go.
Students were tested on three subjects: English, Math, and Social Studies.
The Department of Education says 3% of students across the state mastered the math portion, 17% are on track, 26% are approaching and 53% are below expectations.
For English, 8.3% mastered the English portion of the test, 22% are on track, 42.4% are approaching, and 27.3% are below course expectations.
On the U.S. history end of the course test, 9.5% of students were considered mastered, 20.4% are on track, 34.6% are approaching, and 35.5% are below expectations.
Grades 3 through 8 will only receive raw scores, since not all schools completed Parts I and II during problems with initial testing.
High school students completed both parts of the testing.
