Students taking tests Chalkbeat

Colorado’s third grade TCAP reading scores remained flat in 2013 for the third year in a row, according to preliminary TCAP results released Tuesday. Read our related story.

According to the state, 73 percent of the state’s third-graders scored proficient or advanced in reading in 2013. That’s down roughly a percentage point from last year and roughly equal to scores from two years ago.

Data notes

  • Only schools with at least 16 third-graders receiving TCAP scores are included; the state withholds data for fewer students to protect their privacy. If you cannot find a school or you see blanks or X’s in your school’s history, that typically means not enough students took the exams that year to disclose results.
  • Results of the Spanish-language exams are included in the database, denoted by “Spanish” after the district or school name.
  • Results of the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program come in four levels – unsatisfactory is the lowest level, then partially proficient, proficient and advanced, the highest level. Typically, a student scoring proficient or advanced is considered to be performing at or above grade level. These are the same levels as the former CSAP tests, given since 1997.
