District Diagnostic Reports

While District Value-Added reports provide reliable measures of average student growth for the group of students served, the District Diagnostic reports offer important information about the growth of groups of students at different achievement levels. These reports can help you reflect on how your instructional programs are supporting the academic growth of all students.

For information on how students are placed into and excluded from achievement groups, see Technical Details.

In grades 3–8 in 2015–16, the state of Tennessee suspended testing for mathematics, English language arts, science, and social studies. Therefore, scale scores are not available for these assessments. As a result, the 2016–17 and 2017–18 TVAAS reporting in grades 5–8 for mathematics, English language arts, and science does not include 2015–16 test scores. For more information, see the FAQ or Statistical Models and Business Rules.
