Bradley County calls TCAP data “promising” but not releasing numbers

UPDATE: Sequatchie County Schools have released some of their results.

This was their statement:

“Of the 137 third graders at Griffith Elementary School, 40 had to retake the online test.  Once results are returned (TDOE says 48 hr turnaround), families will know what options they have as a pathway to be promoted to 4th grade. Director of Schools, Sarai Pierce, commented saying, “Regardless of what one standardized test score says, we know that miracles happen inside the walls of public schools every day. We take all students and teach all students. We are thankful for the teachers and families who come together and help prepare their students for the future.”

40 of 137 students is about 30 percent of the third grade class. Hamilton County had similar numbers at 23 percent of students retaking the test.


CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF) – Bradley County school leaders issued a statement on the 3rd grade testing numbers that have worried so many parents in Tennessee.

They call the Bradly County numbers “promising,” but are not releasing them to the public.

School officials are in the process of evaluating and notifying parents of students who did not show adequate progress to advance to the fourth grade.

They face either a re-test this week, summer school, booking a tutor for next year or being held back.

Here is the Bradley County Schools statement on the RAW data:
