Teacher Value-Added

This report provides reliable measures of the academic growth a teacher's students made, on average, in the selected grade and subject or course. The graph displays the growth index for up to three school years and a multi-year trend, when sufficient data is available.

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.
