Creating a Chart

To create a summary pie chart, select the tested grades and subjects or courses you would like to include.

To include all grades, subjects, courses, and the composites, click Select All in the selection area.

Then click Create New Chart.

To view a pie chart for a different set of tests, subjects, or grades, make your selections and click Update Chart.

You can also keep the original pie chart and create a second pie chart by making your new selections and clicking Create New Chart.

You can create up to eight different charts. To scroll through them, use the arrows to the left of the table and to the right of the chart, or click the dots above the table and chart.

Viewing Multiple Charts on a Single Page

If you've created multiple charts, it can be helpful to view them all on the same page. To do that, click View All Charts at the top-right of the pie chart. This opens a new window that displays all the charts you've created. To print or save the page, click Print in the top right of the window.

Understanding the Report

The results are displayed in a table and a pie chart.

The table lists the number of teachers in the selected grades, subjects, and courses in each of the five effectiveness levels for the school, district, and state.

The pie chart represents the distribution of teachers in the school or district for the selected grades, subjects, and courses. Each pie slice represents one of the effectiveness levels. The color coding matches the colors used in the teacher value-added reports and is explained in the legend below the table and chart.

The size of each pie slice indicates the percentage of teacher growth indexes in the school or district with that effectiveness level. Position your mouse pointer over a pie slice or the corresponding row in the table to see the percentage.

To see the pie chart for the district or state, choose from the buttons below the pie chart.

Exercise caution when sharing these pie charts, especially when the number of teachers in a grade and subject or course is very small.

Viewing the Teacher Reports

To view the list of teachers in any effectiveness level group, click on the underlined value in the table. The teachers are listed alphabetically by last name. Other columns display the test, subject, and grade (when applicable). Teachers can appear in the list multiple times, once for each grade and subject or courseand once for each Composite.

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.

To sort the list by any column, click on the column heading.

To view a Teacher Value-Added report for a specific grade and subject or course, click on the teacher's name in the corresponding row.
