NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — For the first time, certain assessment data is not available to Tennessee teachers and families this year because of how the schoolyear ended.
Currently, several pages are missing from the state report cards, including student growth, chronic absenteeism and progress on English language.
When it comes to schools, the overall performance page isn't current because of COVID-19. A paragraph states any federal designation assigned to a school in 2019 has been carried over for the new school year due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Overall, any parent who wants to peek at success indicators this year is unfortunately going to have outdated data.
The Tennessee Department of Education sent out a memo on Monday sharing the news. Officials were excited about the new design and look of the online portal but said the only metrics in this year's report cards for schools and school districts are the graduation rate and ready graduate rate, which judges how prepared students are when they leave high school.
Parents can download the raw data about their district using Excel but have sort through it. Click here for more.
