Test Scores for Jackson, Tennessee Magnet Schools

Links to scores given above each table.

Jackson, Tennessee elementary magnet schools score lower than the state average on their TCAP state tests in EVERY area, 10 to 20 points lower in  lower in some areas.  Note that the state average is given in red font on the line just below the percentage points in subject area.  Evidently Tennessee benchmark scores are quite inflated in comparison to Arkansas, much like Arkansas's 8th grade minimum performance used to be because the state average for reading is 90% in 2005, etc.  

Like Arkansas evidently their scores don't start until 3rd grade.

About the Tests

*                               In 2004-2005 Tennessee used the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) Achievement Test to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading/language arts, math, science and social studies. The results for reading/language arts and math are displayed in GreatSchools.net profiles.

The TCAP is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Tennessee.

The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
