Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Tennessee, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in Tennessee for 2010. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Tennessee showed across-the-board gains--improvements in reading and math at the proficient-and-above, and advanced levels for all racial/ethnic subgroups, low-income students, and boys and girls. (Trends were not available at the basic achievement level.) Progress was also made in narrowing achievement gaps between all subgroups in both subjects at grades 4, 8, and high school. Comparable data were available for 2004-2009. (Contains 9 tables.) [For the main report, "State Test Score Trends through 2008-09, Part 2: Slow and Uneven Progress in Narrowing Gaps", see ED513914.]
