NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — The Tennessee Department of Education released the TNReady test results Thursday, indicating that math scores have improve across several districts in Middle Tennessee.

Five districts, including Metro Nashville and Williamson, Montgomery and Robertson counties, saw math scores improve for grades 3-8.

Murfreesboro City Schools’ math scores improved for grades 3-6. Additionally, Wilson County improved ELA, English l and English II for all students in grades 5-8, according to the report.

”I’m impressed with the improvement we’ve seen in mathematics”, Commissioner Schwinn said, while adding, “the dedication of our educators, commitment to implementing high-quality materials, and unwavering student focus is what sets Tennessee apart and will continue to be the catalyst for moving our state forward.”

Metro Nashville Schools earned a "satisfactory" rating in the state's district accountability status.

Chronic absenteeism and English language proficiency improved across the board. TNReady scores for math improved in grades 3, 4 and 5, in middle schools and in high schools.

However, the graduation rate dropped.

Fifty-six percent of schools across the state also improved their growth scores (TVAAS scores) from the previous year.
