CHALKBEAT, TN: Tennessee Improves Honesty in Reporting Student Test Scores

“Tennessee now is a leader in attempting to honestly assess its students’ academic proficiency, according to a report released Thursday,” says Chalkbeat TN. The story goes on to say:

“The report’s authors said many states continue to post higher math and reading scores on state exams than achieved on NAEP exams, creating an “honesty gap” between what parents are told and how students actually perform.

Tennessee, however, is among eight states celebrated as a “top truth teller” for fourth-grade reading, with a gap of 15 percentage points between 2013-14 state proficiency levels and the state’s 2013 NAEP proficiency levels.”
