Teacher Diagnostic

While the Teacher Value-Added report provides reliable measures of average student growth for the group of students served, the Teacher Diagnostic report offers important information about the growth of students at different achievement levels. This report can help teachers reflect on how the program and instruction 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.
